    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    3 of your minidumps crash with memory corruption.

    1 crashes with pool corruption

    1 crashes at ialmnt5.sys. This is your Intel graphics driver.

    The probable culprit is faulty ram.

    Go HERE and follow the instructions for testing your ram.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

    I tried testing my ram, turned out fine... what else could be the problem?

    I take it the reason you think your memory is fine, is because it has passed Memtest.

    However, some faulty ram can pass Memtest.

    Try a known good stick of ram.

    If that doesn`t work, then I suspect that some other piece of hardware may be causing the problem.

    What are you doing at the times your computer crashes?

    Regards Howard :)
