hi everyone , this is my first time creating a thread , i have gotten alot of BSODs before so i have tryd reformatting to fix this issue cause i thought i ended up usen 32bit drivers on 64bit windows , i was playing a game and it ran perfect until i closed the game and opened internet explorer and i crashed at the google screen with a stop code of 3b , i have gotten many other bsod code before ( 1E. 109 , 1A, D1, 8E, 01, ) i only have the minidump for 3b i think i havent checked , i was hopen someone could help me figure out what the issue is to be causen this bsod, its been happening every since i built my computer, it will only bsod about once or twice a week and happens at random times , i ran prime95 on blend test and it will fail anywhere between 30 seconds to 10 minutes but if i run a small fft test it doesnt fail , i have all the latest drivers VC and mobo

Random restarts since the computer was new usually points to RAM. Hardware?

Run memtest for 10 to 12 hours. Any errors at all mean bad or incorrectly configured RAM.
