I started getting blue screens and freezes two weeks back and after some experimenting I found that my DIMM slots 1+2 will cause freezing if any RAM is in them. Slots 3+4 can both have sticks and it is stable which stinks because there goes the dual channel.
I have ran windows memory diagnostic on all three sticks with no errors coming back but someone told me the windows check isn't very good. I am pretty confident all three sticks are ok and that the DIMM slots are the issue. Can I use memtest86 to test the DIMM slots?
Lastly I tried to use memtest86 by writing it onto a USB, it said writing complete I clicked on the USB drive and it says permission denied or something so I restarted and I met with a continuous BSOD loop with critical failure and it didntstop until I removed the USB.
I have reinstalled windows twice and updated my BIOS to latest, lowered raised DRAM freq and lowers and raised voltage, everything is back to default now. Any ideas as to my problem? Also what am I doing wrong with memtest86?
