    Yes, please attach your five most recent dumps and please don't zip each one individually. :)

    Yes, go here:

    Do the memory and hard drive tests, and attach any minidumps. You may have to zip them. What are you doing with the computer when the BSOD's happen? What are your system specs?

    Hello. Will run memtest when I have time. Just after I created this thread there was beeping, the computer restarted and another persistent BSOD was the cause:

    Can you ZIP them using the built-in Windows ZIP function? Select all the files, right-click and send them to a compressed folder, the attach that folder here

    4 of 5 minidump files are error code 0x50 and one of the major causes for this error is corrupted memory. All four cited corrupted memory as your issue.

    Therefore we want you to run Memtest on your RAM.

    1. Go to www.memtest.org and download the latest ISO version which is 4.20. It is free and perfectly safe.

    2. Burn ISO to a CD.

    3. Place CD in your drive and reboot with CD in drive. (You might have to place your drive as first bootable in your BIOS) The test will take over.


    There is a Tutorial: How to use Memtest in our Guides and Tutorials forum; follow the instructions. There is a newer version than what is listed; use the newer. If you need to see what the Memtest screen looks like go to reply #21. The third screen is the Memtest screen.

    Step1 - Let it run for a LONG time. The rule is a minimum of 7 Passes (not hours; this test is not measured by hours); the more Passes after 7 so much the better. The only exception is if you start getting errors before 7 Passes then you can skip to Step 2.

    There are 8 individual tests per Pass. Many people will start this test before going to bed and check it the next day.

    If you have errors you have corrupted memory and it needs to be replaced.

    Step 2 – Because of errors you need to run this test per stick of RAM. Take out one and run the test. Then take that one out and put the other in and run the test. If you start getting errors before 7 Passes you know that stick is corrupted and you don’t need to run the test any further on that stick.


    * Get back to us with the results.


    *** If Memtest shows no errors then find the voltage specs of your RAM and compare it to the voltage setting in your BIOS. Do they match?

    You need to make sure that memtest86 CD was created as a bootable disc. The error you mention means that it wasn't created properly. The Memtest86 .iso CD image file needs to be downloaded and burned to a CD or DVD

    I downloaded memtest and extracted onto desktop. I used imgburn and clicked " Write image file to disc". When I click the Folder Boot and press open I get an error " Invalid or unsupported image file format". Any ideas what is the problem here. Thanks

    Download the pre-compiled bootable iso zip file (V4.20) and unzip the file before you try to burn it... I use DVD decrypter to burn iso files
