Posted 17 August 2014 - 06:58 PM

Before I begin here are my specs:

 

Cpu: AMD Athlon 64 X2 5000+ 

Gpu: Sapphire Radeon HD 5450

2GB DDR2 800MHz Komputerbay RAM

Psu: Corsair Builder Series CX 500 Watt ATX/EPS  80 PLUS (CX500)

 

I have a pci x1 slot being used with a TP LINK TL-WN781ND and a molex case fan.

 

Alright so here's my dilemma. Occasionally while watching youtube videos or playing games (mainly TF2 and Garrys Mod) and watching a simple .webm video, my computer bluescreens. It's completely random. Sometimes I can watch videos all day flawlessly(same applies with games and webms) and other times I can't. I ran 3 passes of memtest with 0 errors, reapplied thermal paste on my cpu cooler and my GPU heatsink, reseated the ram and even dusted out the case thinking it was heat related at first, but it made no difference.

 

Here's the WhoCrashed report if it helps:

Hi,

What is the operating system? 2GB sounds like the absolute minimum RAM for almost any OS.

Keep us posted

Do you remember what you have installed/uninstalled recently that might have contributed to the problem?
 

Also, do you mind checking your hard drive for any odd buzzes or clicks?

I don't remember exactly what I installed that might've contributed to this problem although I think it may be the wireless adapter. The only time I hear my hard drive clicking is when I turn on my computer.

Hi,

If there are no slow spots in your Internet connection my recommendation would still be to at least double your RAM

Keep us posted

Like the previous poster said, you will really benefit if you would double your ram, 

 

I don't remember exactly what I installed that might've contributed to this problem although I think it may be the wireless adapter. The only time I hear my hard drive clicking is when I turn on my computer.

 

Have you tried removing the wireless adapter? We can isolate the problem even further that way. Try removing it and uninstalling its drivers and see how it goes.

 

Does your wireless adapter come with a driver (at all)? Is it updated? 

 

Did you update any of the drivers for your hardware? You can check this in your system restore (if turned on). You can check the date where you have started experiencing the problem, then check on the preceding dates what changes you have made in your system. Upon confirming this, you can try to rollback the suspected drivers that might have started the issue. 

 

The clicking of the Hard drive when booting up is fine, unless it is a loud click or something that sounds out of place then i guess theres no problem.

 

Please let us know how it goes!

Removed the WiFi card but it made no difference so I grabbed a 1GB stick I had lying around and installed it for a total of 3GB so far everything's working fine!

Edit: Got my hopes up for nothing Bluescreened again.

I only have 2 DIMM slots i'll see if I can get a 2x2GB Kit for less than $50.

All is well now. Bluescreens are gone and my system is working more fluent! Who knew adding 2GB more would make such a difference,

Glad to hear all is well

If you get into more complex gaming or graphics intensive activities you may need to upgrade your RAM again. Using the paging file for virtual RAM is fine for some things but not for anything where speed is important.

We'll be here when you need us. Til then
