    Your issue is memory corruption. Two of three minidumps specifically cited this as the issue. The other said hardware and this error was 0x8E and these are almost always caused by hardware and are paricularly a strong indicator of corrupted memory.

    You need to run Memtest onj your RAM to determine if one or all your sticks are bad.

    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.

    Let it run for a LONG time. The rule is a minimum of 7 Passes; the more Passes after 7 so much the better. There are 8 individual tests per Pass, i.e 8 individual test = 1 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.

    Also, with 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.

    It could be that one or more of your sticks were not properly seated.
