On Tuesday I began experiencing a BSOD, so I tested all my RAM sticks. One ended up being bad so I removed it. Tested the remaining sticks again and they were fine. Had the computer running for two hours last night (without my headset dongle plugged in) and it was fine; no blue screens. I came home today thinking I resolved my BSODs by removing my bad ram, only to find 10 minutes after starting my computer, and as soon as I plugged in the dongle (the extended one) I got another BS that I got a few days ago. I rebooted my system (with it still plugged in) and the computer would have a black screen after the windows logo. So I unplugged it and rebooted again; it came up fine. I'm assuming this blue screen has to do with the driver for the headset. That makes sense, because when I first bought the headset I went to the manufacturer website like the instructions said, to grab the driver and download it. After installing the driver and rebooting, my computer constantly blue screened and boot looped. I had to boot to safe mode and remove the driver for the computer to boot again. So I'm here because after hours of google searching I couldn't find a close enough match to my exact problem, especially since at the same time I happened to be having a failing RAM stick.
So a quick point of what I did:
- Memtested all sticks, removed the bad stick of ram.
- QT Extended test of hardware, everything passed.
- Recently removed the Vengeance headset sofware, (after the reboot that worked)
- I initially tested the ram because of a lock up during playing Don't Starve, then a day later a BS while playing League of Legends
Help would be very appreciated. I will attach the specs of my computer. Please ask me if you need any other information. I'm also attaching info that I think would help.
