Ok so I keep freezing and some times i get bsod. It first started when i was playing games as usual but then it kept freezing. I used malware bytes and it found nothing but i used SBot search n destroy it found 4 trojans i deleted 2 but the other 2 needed to restart nto fix . unfortunately i kept freezing when i rebooted and after a few reboots it wasnt able to start up windows saying it was missing a file. So i repaired it with my windows cd and my computer still freezes and i just tried using sbot in Safe mode and it frozed and i got BSOD.
Im not sure what BSOd it was but it was dumping physical memory.


please help, thanks keven

You can find out for sure by downloading memtest86+ make sure you download the ISO, burn it to a disc, boot up off it and run the test for a couple hours and see what happens.

There is a very good tutorial for using Memtest86 provided by a member of our staff.

Keep in mind, the manual check listed above is always superior to the software check, listed below. DO NOT proceed with memtest, if you can go with option A[/u]

B. If you have only one RAM stick installed...
...run memtest...

1. Download - Pre-Compiled Bootable ISO (.zip)
2. Unzip downloaded memtest86+-....iso.zip file.
3. Inside, you'll find memtest86+-....iso file.
4. Download, and install ImgBurn: [url=http://www.imgburn.com/]http://www.imgburn.com/
5. Insert blank CD into your CD drive.
6. Open ImgBurn, and click on Write image file to disc
7. Click on Browse for a file... icon:

8. Locate memtest86+-....iso file, and click Open button.
9. Click on ImgBurn green arrow to start burning bootable memtest86 CD:

10. Once the CD is created, boot from it, and memtest will automatically start to run.

The running program will look something like this depending on the size and number of ram modules installed:

It's recommended to run 5-6 passes. Each pass contains very same 8 tests.

This will show the progress of the test. It can take a while. Be patient, or leave it running overnight.

The following image is the test results area:

The most important item here is the “errors” line. If you see ANY errors, even one, most likely, you have bad RAM.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
