  1. Hello

    My computer keeps bsod-ing me for the last couple of months. I changed my os from xp to win 7 and back to xp again and everytime it does the same thing. I tried using memtest went through 7 runs and no errors.
    My system specs are
    Intel core 2 duo e7400
    Asus P5e64 ws evolution
    Corsair 4GB DDR3 1333MHZ CL9 XMS3 DHX Dual Channel Kit
    ati radeon 3870 x2
    Thermaltake 500 W power suply

    Thank you for your help.

    Memory Corruption is specifically cited as the cause of your issues.. Run the free and completely safe Memtest on yourr RAM

    See the link below and follow the instructions. There is a newer version than what is listed but either one should work. If you need to see what the Memtest screen looks like go to reply #21. The third screen is the Memtest screen.

    Step1 - Let it run for a LONG time. The rule is a minimum of 7 Passes; the more Passes after 7 so much the better. The only exception is if you start getting errors before 7 Passes then you can skip to Step 2.

    There are 8 individual tests per Pass. Many people will start this test before going to bed and check it the next day.

    If you have errors you have corrupted memory and it needs to be replaced.

    Step 2 – Because of errors you need to run this test per stick of RAM. Take out one and run the test. Then take that one out and put the other in and run the test. If you start getting errors before 7 Passes you know that stick is corrupted and you don’t need to run the test any further on that stick.
