hey guys,

My pc has recently begun receiving quite alot of blue screens, usually it happens when I browse the web, sometimes when I play games and generally it's just a very random occurrence.

Heres the error message: *** Stop: 0x00000050)0xFFFFFA600E830000, 0x0000000000000000, 0xFFFFF800034F9E2E, 0x160)

PC specs:
I7 920 @ 3.7 ghz
Gigabyte GTX 560 TI
Corsair tx 750
4 Gb Mushkin DDr3 ram, was running in 6 Gb triple channel a while ago, but the third ram slot broke...
ASrock x58 motherboard

Hope you can help me out!

-------------Btw I run Windows vista 64 bit, service pack 2 and when I said 0x160 I meant: 0x0000000000000000) 16 0's

Bad ram is a likely culprit, you should run memtest, http://www.memtest86.com/download.htm

It should be able to diagnose a bad dimm

Alternatively you could remove one dimm, test it. Then switch the dimms and test again

Just ran the memory test, 1 pass for the first stick and then I clicked the second in for another test. There were no errors whatsoever.
Any other suggestions?

thanks,

Sorry, I wan't clear in my response. For memtest, you should run with both dimms in. With regard to running with one dimm at a time, I meant just in normal usage. See if you have the same problems, with only one dimm, then switch and use the PC normally with the other dimm.

I apologize.

So I tested the 2 dimms with Memtest, ran 2 passes (1 hour and 30 mins) with no errors whatsoever. Earlier I had tried running with one dimm at a time, but the problem still persist it seems. They are quite old, so they might be faulted after all?
