I am getting these again... :( 

I had this problems for a while, re-installed windows and it was fine for about a month and now I still get random crashes like this.

Could this be the computer overheating ? Could opening and cleaning my laptop helps ? I am running out of idea right now...


I run a m18x R1 with dual graphic card, it is 1 year old.

Please help me... I ran sfc scannow and it still says some files are corrupted !? how is this possible I just re-instaled windows.

All I do on this computer is play League of legends ( a really easy to run game any pc can )

It's likely that your RAM has gone bad. Let memtest86+ run for a few hours (or until the first error). If any errors show up, it means one or more sticks of your RAM are faulty.

Try removing all but 1 stick of RAM from the machine and see if the problem persists. If not, keep swapping a different one in until you get the crash again. Then you have the defective stick.

I dont follow you on this one... I got no error with all stick on but I should remove them 1 by 1 to test them all indivdually ?

I mean boot into Windows and see if you get that random crash. How often does the crash occur?

I run this laptop about 6-8 hours sessions, always crah once in the first hours or so and sometimes only once but sometimes up to 5.

Crash occur really randomly, I normally run League of legends + internet thats about it...

OK, then it shouldn't be too hard to figure out which one is defective. Just swap them in one at a time and run your normal workload until it crashes (if it does).

EDIT: You can run Hwinfo64 and see what your temps are if you're worried it's overheating.

Just wanting to make sure before I open this up and test them one by one, I ran the memtest with all stick and it said no error whatsoever.

It can still be one of the mem stick that is broken ?
