Multiple BSOD, usually memory_corruption. Replace RAM?

  1. Hello,

    I have been getting some BSODs. It wasn't happening really frequently so I neglected it at first, but now I've gotten 3 this week, including the one that happened 20 minutes ago as I attempted to post a thread here requesting assistance. When analyzing my minidumps, 4/6 say, "Probably caused by : memory_corruption". I've run memtest before heading to work twice. The first time it found one problem on the 6th pass. Today's memtest gave me some results that were... interesting. I don't know if it indicates a problem with the instance of memtest I was running or a problem with the RAM itself.

    I've included the bugcheck analysis output from my last 6 minidumps. As I can only include 5 attachments and I can't include images or URLs in my post, the 4th file contains the analyses of last 3 dumps. The jpg is of today's memtest. Everything suggests to me that I need to replace the RAM but I am hoping for a second opinion as I don't have any experience with BSOD issues.

    Thanks in advance!

    Any errors with memtest and you have corrupted memory that needs to be replaced. Looking at your text files it clearly indicates corrupted memory.
