Help - random reboots, no BSOD

By Decade

  1. Well, my PC has been rebooting once a day, sometimes (though rarely) twice. Unsure what's going on, I suspect possible driver incompatibility. I have a hijackthis log and 4 most recent (out of 10) minidumps in the attached zip file. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    This looks like a memory error within your onboard ram

    Please run memtest, by following the following link

    Ran through 15 passes and got 5 errors all on test 4. If memtest was supposed to produce a logfile, then it did not for me.

    You know I have never run memtest myself (my rams good)
    Did it give you a location ie Ram slot 1 or something

    But this really means your ram is faulty
    You may need to open the case (hardware experience required, also refer to manual for precations, power out)
    and reseat your ram (also blow out all dust)

    Then you have bad RAM. You'll need to run MemTest on each stick of memory to determine if one or all need to be replaced.
