Hi everyone,

i'm having trouble with my Win 7 for some time now. BSOD appears randomly. mostly while playing games, and when listening to music or just surfing the internet as well. error messages are always different:

0x1000007e or 0x00000109 or 0x000000f4 or 0x00000050 or 0x0000001a or 0x0000001

i've tried running memtest86+, which found some errors, and sice i have two memory sticks (2x 2GB) i tried to figure out which one was broken, tested each one seperately. no erros... tried different slots, and again no errors.

I would appreciate help.

here are some minidump logs:

Almost certainly bad RAM judging from the BSOD's. The IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL [0xA], MEMORY_MANAGEMENT [0x1A], PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA [0x50], SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED [0x7E], and CRITICAL_STRUCTURE_CORRUPTION [0x109] are all strong indications of memory related problems. The fact all of these are comming up basically makes me 99.9% certain the problem is RAM.

Run memtest86 on each stick of RAM, one at a time, until you find the one with errors on it.

Thanks!. I already did that but strangely no errors were found. I guess I'll just borrow some RAM from a friend to see if problems will continue.
