I was enjoying my rig since 7 months but now I am getting strange BSOD from last week. Computer starts as normal. Though I am doing nothing, after some time BSOD appears.

I tried to remove one RAM module and keep other RAM module in first memory slot. In this case, computer works fine. No BSOD at all.

My RAM is Corsair 8GB (2 X 4GB) CMZ4GX3M1A1600C9

Need help guys.

Let me know if other information is required.

Thank you.

If you put the one that you removed in the slot that is working now do you get BSOD's? Could be a faulty stick. Run Memtest

Ok, I will put removed RAM in currenlty working motherboard slot. But I doubt that RAM will be faulty because I was using it since last 6-7 months. I have not removed it since the installation and suddenly BSOD started.

About Memtest, I have no idea how to use it. I will post results as soon as I have them.

Thanks for the reply
