  1. Hey, I desperately need some help here.

    My PC keeps randomly restarting. I just formatted my computer and haven't install any software yet It shows the blue screen of death for a half a second or so and then restarts.

    I managed to get an error code description and this is what it said:

    The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck. The bugcheck was: 0x1000007f (0x00000008, 0xbab38d70, 0x00000000, 0x00000000). A dump was saved in: C:\WINDOWS\Minidump\Mini090408-01.dmp.

    So yeah.... I managed to get some attach some of the filedumps so hopefully this can shed some light on what is going on

    Thanks so much!

    Check your Ram with Memtest for 7 Passes
    And confirm all Manufacture drivers are up to date

    Once Memtest gives a fault through its 7 Passes test.
    Yes you then need to test each Ram card individually until you find the suspect Ram.
    If all Ram cards were originally purchased at the same time, and one card is found to be faulty, I have noticed that many users elect to replace all the Ram cards anyway.
    So it's your call (if one or more are found to be faulty)
