  1. I've been experiencing blue screens sometimes with no errors, some different ones, but mainly they haev been page fault in non paged areas. I've run a disk check, but have yet to test the ram. I've attached some minidumps maybe someone can help me out with this problem?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi Ryan,

    Probably the culprit is faulty ram or video card. You can run memtest to stress the ram. If memtest reports the ram is faulty, ram is bad. However Memtest is not a perfect tool to test the memory as some faulty ram can pass memtest. There have no tools to test video memory.

    Suggestion
    1. Check the temperature of the CPU and make sure that it is not overheat (ie temperature < 60C)
    Make sure that the CPU fan works properly
    2. Reseat the memory stick to another memory slot
    3. Downclock the ram
    4. Clean the dust inside the computer case
    5. Make sure that the ram is compatible to the motherboard
    6. Check the bios setting about memory timing and make sure that it is on
    If it still crashes, diagnostic which memory stick is faulty
    1. Take out one memory stick. If windows does not crash, the removed memory stick is faulty.
    2. If you have only one memory stick, replace the ram
