    BSOD on New Build Shortly after System Boots


    I just completed a new build. Shortly after the desktop loads it will BSOD. It's ever at the exact same time and there are a few different BSOD errors. It will usually happen once I try to run something. For example I went to download the Windows 10 upgrade in Windows update and it did it and another time I was checking my display settings. I've reseated the RAM and ran the Windows memory diagnostic tool which found no errors.

    Hi taxidriver1138,

    Welcome to the 8forums.

    Please check the specifications of your motherboard and your memory.
    According to my information, your motherboard supports DDR4 memory, but your modules are DDR3.
    As all the crashes are memory related, you need to get DDR4 memory modules as the current are not compatible with your motherboard.

    Tell me if I am wrong.

    Hi thanks for the reply. The RAM is definitely DDR4. Sorry I should specified that in my specs.

    Alright, then we move on with testing the RAM.

    RAM TEST

    Run MemTest86+ to analyse your RAM. MemTest86+ - Test RAM - Windows 10 Forums


    Note   Note



    MemTest86+ needs to be run for at least 8 passes for conclusive results. Set it running before you go to bed and leave it overnight. We're looking for zero errors here. Even a single error will indicate RAM failure.

    Please check the frequency of the RAM in the BIOS and make sure it is supported by the motherboard.

    DRIVER VERIFIER

    warning   Warning
    Please make a backup of your important files and get your rescue media or create one.
    Please create a restore point.

    Please follow this tutorial to run driver verifier.


    Driver verifier stresses your drivers and will crash your pc if any driver fails due to a violation.


    Driver verifier should be performed for a max of 48 hours, or when you have a bluescreen, whatever comes first.


    If driver verifier has found a violation and you can't get back into windows normally, try to boot into safe mode and reset in safe mode driver verifier, or in the troubleshooting options open command prompt and type verifier /reset.


    Note   Note
    Your system will act very sluggishly while driver verifier is enabled, this is normal as your drivers will be being subjected to heavy testing in order to make them crash.
