I had 4 (2x2) gigs of memory running on my 64bit W7 system until I started getting system freezes and ran memtest to find out that one of my sticks was bad. Now I am running off of a single 2GB stick. The problem temporarily disappeared but has reappeared lately, usually when I'm playing games or doing anything that causes system load. I ran memtest and get no errors.

My Last BSOD:

Problem signature:

Can anyone help confirm / give any other explanations as to what might be wrong?

What is the make and model of the memory?

So the system ran fine for a long time, then one day it started giving you problems? Or it's been a problem since day 1?

Is the stick your having trouble with running in the same dimm slot as the bad stick you took out?

These are the make / model:

I've had my memory for about a year and my computer for 2+ so its just randomly been giving me problems starting about 2 months ago.

I switched the DIMM slot of the current memory and got no real change leading me to believe the slots on the MB are okay.

I would rma both sticks, but first I would check bios to make sure something hasn't changed.

Make sure the dimm voltage is set to 2.1v.
