  1. hi i posted on here a few weeks back that i was encountering an IRQL NOT LESS OR EQUAL BSOD. after doing what members told me to do (ram tests) i found that both sticks encountered no errors when i tested them individually but when they where both in together i had over 1500 errors within the first 3 passes. I then rung up the store where i bought my computer from and they sent out replacement ram sticks. The problem is still the same, they both pass the test fine when on their own, but together they create errors. i have flashed my bios to the newest version and still whenever i carry out big tasks (over 50% ram) i get a BSOD. The minidumps refer to ntoskrnl.exe please help me resolve this problem, i have attached my latest minidumps

    4 out of the 5 Minidumps state:
    BugCheck A, {128001159890, 2, 1, fffff80001acad58}
    Probably caused by : memory_corruption

    One of the Minidumps, states:
    BIOS.exe

    Please search for this file and rename it to bios.old

    It is then recommended to do a full (updated) Antivirus and Spyware scan (Removing all infections found)
