  1. Need help with this random BSOD

    Hi,

    Can anyone (maybe cpc2004) help me interpret this dump file so I can pinpoint which hardware of mine is causing the blue screens that I got sometimes during start-up, graphic intensive game, or downloading file?

    I am suspecting one of my harddrive is corrupted.

    Thanks in advance

    After I investigated your minidumps, it is faulty RAM. Reseat the memory to another memory slot. If it still fails, downclock the RAM.

    After taking off 1 RAM module (I have 2x512)

    The BSOD doesn't appear as much as if I have 2 of the module together. However it is still showing the BSOD.

    I have tested the one that I took off alone and it give more BSOD.

    Could it be that my 2 modules are faulty? Could it be the motherboard?

    This is my last BSOD mini dump

    Error code 1000008e, parameter1 c0000005, parameter2 804e59ec, parameter3 b761fccc, parameter4 00000000.
