    BSOD while playing DragonNest(mmorpg), during high ram use


    Hi all,

    Been lurking around the web for answers and haven't had much luck so here i am.

    I've been getting a BSOD the past few days and I've just done a clean install of windows 8.1 64x. The BSOD occurs during the times of high ram usage as to what i have observed, so i am leaning towards bad ram. I have just reformatted my windows on a SSD. I know this does not matter since its a SSD, its just FYI as you might see a lot of missing startup programs, etc. Previous windows was also on SSD. BSOD did happen before i reformatted.
    I have ran windows memory diagnostics and error did return saying that i have an hardware error (ram).

    However, at the same time i'm not sure if replacing the ram will solve my problem. This is because I think I'm missing/ using drivers that are too old causing the BSOD.

    Please kindly help and guide me on the matter

    -On a side note, do you guys mind telling what other drivers I need to update/ require?

    Thanks in advance.

    Edit: On a second thought, the "display driver stopped responding and has recovered" message has poped up 2-3 times in the past few hours. Maybe its just a driver issue or both RAM and driver issue.
    I'll let your expertise go to work haha

    Your RAM needs replacing, it's failing. I even see indications in your dump file of memory corruption, specifically list entry inconsistencies which have probably failed due to bad addresses. You're best buying a new set, or returning the memory your have under warranty.

    Thanks for your fast reply. Should i be testing if it is a ramslot problem or is it definitely the RAm stick problem?

    If your RAM is under warranty then just go ahead and replace it, if not then you can test individual sticks with Memtest86 to isolate the cause to a DIMM slot or RAM module.
