  1. I was recently putting together a new config. I have random freezes and BSOD couple of times a day. I am suspecting my RAM. This is my recent BSOD minidump, could someone read it for me please?

    Note: I tried to upload the file without packing it, but for some reason I am not able to do it: ''The uploaded file does not have an allowed extension.''

    Your hard drive could be failing...

    You need to test the hard drive. What is it's model and type? SATA, IDE or SSD?

    Ok, I understand. I have 2 SATA Hard Drives. But the question was How did you get to this outcome? Because with my little minidump reading knowledge I got to the point, where I think, I may know what was the problem. Before the BSOD occurred I was running 5 memtests taking up 11.6 GB of memory. I think my comp tried to hibernate and could not because of my memtests taking up most of the accessible RAM. BTW I have 12GB of RAM installed.

    The minidump shows a INTERNAL POWER ERROR Bug Check String. This indicates a possible problem with the boot drive. So 12GB memory means that you have 3 4GB modules installed? Are they all the same type and speeds

    They are all the same brand and speed, they are part of the same package.

    Do you know how to check a hard drive?

    With a software made for that purpose or HDSK I assume.

    CHKDSK is a good start. Your hard drive's support website may have better hard drive testing software though
