Hey,

I've been having for a few days now random BSOD mostly showing Memory Management error (but not only, sometimes I get BSOD with different errors..).

These occur randomly while I surf, use Media Player and even sometimes just when I startup\shutdown my windows. Oddly enough, it hasn't happened when I played resource consuming games.

I've updated windows, ran complete anti-virus\malware scan, run chkdsk, tried to scan for faulty logs, ran an extended windows memory diagnostic test.... all came up with nothing - and the problem persists.

 

I ran a sfc check and it said it found a couple of errors, but it couldn't fix them. Although when I ran it today it showed that there are no errors. weird.

 

Ever since the BSODs started I've been having other issues such as IASstoricon.exe error on startup, google drive isn't starting and what not.

 

Here's my Setup (it's one year old, didn't change anything):

 

Windows 7 Ult 64bit
Intel i5 6600k
8 Gb Ram ddr4
Geforce 970gtx

H170m-d3h motherboard

650w PSU 

 

I've Attached the Sysnative check and the sfc check log - maybe it'll help.

 

Thank you!

El

Greetings,

Unfortunately, this appears to be a pirated version of Windows. BleepingComputer's forum rules prohibit me from helping you further:

If you would like help, please purchase a legitimate copy of Windows for your computer and run the Sysnative File Collection App again.

Thank you.

Thank you for the reply.

 

I've uninstalled the Windows 7 and installed Windows 10 using the media creation tool. I haven't gotten around to activating it - but technically it's a legitimate copy.

 

Will you be able to help now?

 

El

Yes, of course. :) Please run the Sysnative File Collection App again, since you have changed your operating system.

Wow, that was fast!

 

Sfc detected corrupted files again but it can't fix them (Sfcfix crashes when I ran it afterwards...)

 

Thank you again :)

I am quite certain these BSODs are related to hardware, especially with the differing bugchecks. Also, the fact that SFC is finding corruptions on a fresh install makes me wonder about the health of the drive. Anyway, please start with these free hardware diagnostics. Run ALL the tests, not neglecting the RAM and HDD tests.

Ok - My USB just died on me so I'll buy CDs for these tests tomorrow and post the results here.

 

Now when I think of it - the PC crashed again and again when I tried to install Geforce driver on my SSD repeatedly - but when I installed the driver on my HDD it went smooth....

 

Guess we'll know more after I ran the tests.

 

Yours,

El

Alrighty then...

 

Ran Intel SSD Toolbox and Data Lifeguard Diagnostic on both my hard drives. They passed with flying colors.

 

Wish I could say the same for my RAM... Memtest found almost immediately over 70,000 errors. I've attached pics.

 

Funny how Windows Memory Diagnostic Tool didn't find anything. I guess that means I simply need new RAM? What can be the causes of this malfunction?

 

Doesn't a 2400Mhz DDR4 RAM stick suppose to last more than a year?

 

Thanks again,

El

I'd say that you probably need new RAM, but try reseating your RAM sticks before anything else and cleaning out the slots. Then run MemTest86+ again. This is why we never trust the Windows Memory Diagnostic, it always misses errors. :wink:

bwv848

 

p.s. How many RAM sticks do you have?

Just one. It's a Corsair 8Gb DDR4 2400Mhz

 

I opened up the case, cleaned it and switched the RAM to a different slot (slot 3 instead of 1). Memtest found errors all the same.

 

Thank you for all the help - feels great to finally know what's wrong.

 

Yours,

El

 

P.S

 

can it do harm to other components if I keep using the PC just until I get in touch with the retailer?

Hi, El!

I'm not sure whether if a bad RAM stick can damage your computer. My best guess is that it could harm your motherboard, but I'm not sure at all. I'll ask my knowledgable friend and see what he thinks — I'm curious too. Anyway, you should really give Corsair a hard time and force them to replace your RAM stick. :thumbup2:

Hi, El!

 

I've talked to my friend and here's what I've gathered. It'd be best not to use your computer with a faulty RAM module for mainly two reasons. First, it could cause imbalance in another component on the motherboard, and second, it could also cause overheating and subsequently damage other components. Further, bad RAM could potentially cause significant data corruption, which is a very large risk to take.

 

Have a great weekend.

 

Regards . . .

Hey again!

 

Sorry for the late update, didn't want to run my PC until I got a new working RAM installed.

 

Anyways, I went to the retailer and he switched the RAM without problem, even gave me a slightly better RAM with better CL. Went home, ran memtest - all clear :)

 

Thank you so much - and to all of you who are reading this thread: don't trust windows memory diagnostic!

 

Yours,

El
