TWO Blue Screen Problems, help?

I got two blue screens today within a matter of 30 minutes, and they're both related, I think. The first one, "An attempt was made to execute a non-executable memory", and the second "Memory_Management". I googled them, but no recent posts.

I've been having ALOT of problems with my built PC, and I thought I may have had to reinstall my OS. I installed Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit, and when downloading initial Windows Updates (after driver updates), I got those blue screen messages. Is something wrong with my RAM? They seem to be RAM related.. Is one of my sticks faulty?

My build:

RAM: G. Skill Ripjaws X-Series 8GB (2x4GB)

I have no problem returning my RAM to newegg, but I want to make sure that's the problem first. Any ideas? Please give me any ideas you have.

Thanks!

  1. Download memtest86, burn it to a cd, and run it for a while, it should tell you within 3-4 hours if there are memory problems, though some guys run it longer.

    If you run memtest and get errors, start by pulling a stick, and testing the sticks individually, which would tell you which stick has troubles. Also, be sure to look at the manufacturers specs for timings and voltage, you may need to manually set those in your bios.

    The other thing I would look at is the SSD. Have you tried to install the OS to the Hard drive without the SSD? There may be a firmware update to address things with that SSD, also, I think I've read something about guys setting SSD's to run in IDE mode in the bios, I do not have an SSD installed yet, so cannot say for certain about that, but that gives you some things to start with.
  2. Even though the SSD seems completely unrelated, I suspect it. Run memtest86 on the RAM first. Then look at installing Windows on a HDD.

    I have never seen a good OCZ product. Their specs are awesome, prices are cheap. But everything they make feels half-assed

    I tried burning MemTest86 to a CD, and it's not working.. it says the file on the disc is a Disc Image File, and when I try to open it, it wants me to burn it again.. I already unzipped it.

    I tried running memtest86 but it's not working. All the info is in my reply to the other poster.
  5. You need to burn the image and make a bootable CD. www.google.com
