OS: Windows 10

Configs: i5, 16gb ram, ssd 250gb, gtx 970


I am experiencing a few random black screens with no cursor.

The only way out is pressing the reset button.


A few days earlier I've got a BSOD about PFN list corrupted.


And I usually get this message in my virtual machine (using virtual box)


I've already did a chkdsk and a sfc /scannow and there are no errors in my windows files.




Help. What should I do?

My temps are ok, never above 60º Celsius.


My main OS is Windows 10.

And my Virtual box OS is Windows 7.


I've just run a memory test, with memtest86+ 5.0 and I got a few errors in one of the sticks.

I've tested in all slots, in one of them I got errors in the 5# test.

And for the others I got 1~2 error in the #8, #9, #10 test.


I believe its my memory then... There is no fix for it right? Just replacing them? Or there is a fix?


PS: I've already cleaned the memory sticks with a isopropil alcohol, and also tried to clean the motherboard slots with the same product, but its a bit hard to clean the motherboard, so Im not sure if I did a good job on the motherboard.
