UPDATE!

 

So i opened up the back and found that someone at some stage had either replaced or added an 8gb stick of RAM. It looks like they did it without properly removing the cooler and the stick wasnt clipped down properly. Is it worth bothering removing the cooler and reinstalling the stick to see if its any good or just replace it at a later date? i still have 8gb of Ram left on a laptop. Cheers

 

 

 

 

Hey guys, i'm having a problem with my laptop, it sporadically BSODs maybe once a day playing games. I ran mdsched.exe and it says that it has detected a memory error and i should contact my manufacturer.

 

Specs:

 

MSI Dominator G70 2PC

16GB DDR 3 Ram

870M

I7.

 

If its just a RAM problem i would like to just replace it but i don't know how to find out if its one stick or both? I did some reasearch about trying to find a log file for mdsched.exe and found some info in the system viewer. They mean nothing to me, can anyone give me some advice as how to better determine if it is a RAM fault or GPU Memory or? Thanks.
