  1. So, I am getting these annoying BS. And I haven't really noticed any pattern, they are just coming whenever they want to.
    And because of that, I was just wondering if someone had the time the read over my minidump file. Hopefully you will find out what and were the problem is. Or, I will have to pay someone to fix it.
    From what the BSOD says, it is hardware related.

    The minidump points to memory management. Test your memory by using Memtest86. Download the latest 4.20 .iso file and burn it to a DVD or CD. Boot the problem computer with this disc and let Memtest86 run for at least 7 passes:

    How long does it take? I'm an currently on 70 000 errors. Not THAT bad, ey?

    EDIT:

    110 000 Errors, Pass 9%, WallTime 0:05:00
    It takes a break at 142 592 errors.

    Time to replace the memory. If you have more than one memory stick installed, you should test them separately. With more than one memory stick installed, 2 sticks are never both bad at the same time

    I have 4. Will do some testing then.
    Should I test them one and one with the Memtest86 program?

    Yes. Let us now how it goes. Good luck:) The bad memory stick should be easy to discover

    I think I have found the bad one.
    First, I tried whit just one card. 0 Errors
    I added one more card. 0 Errors
    Switched the newest added card whit the third card. 0 Errors
    Then, I tried the last card. My PC didn't even boot up when I had that one installed.
    So I would guess, that was the bad card.
