I´ve been experiencing some blue screens of death,completely random over the time and a lot of CRC errors while extracting files.
After some google research I've read that 4 things could be causing this problem: 1_ Overclocking 2_Bad Motherboard 3_ Bad RAM 4_ Incompatible RAM
I know that this problem was already present in my computer before I decided to overclock it and I know for sure my RAM is compatible with my motherboard. So that leaves 2 options,either I have a broken Motherboard or broken Memory.
I´ve been testing HCI memtest these last past nights and I only get errors when I use both sticks of RAM at the same time. Individualy they show no errors.
I tried everything RAM socket to test them and the result is always the same: 1 stick of memory= no errors whilst 2 sticks of memory= a lot of errors.
Could someone more experienced tell me if the problem is really the motherboard?
The problem started much before I tried to overclock it.
Anyway I removed the overclocking and tested it just to be sure and the problem remained. 1 stick of RAM would pass error free on HCI memtest, 2 sticks of ram= lots of errors, like they can't comunicate with each other.
