hi friends. yesterday i pluged my friends USB Flash Memory to my pc and after nearly 10-15 seconds computer gave a blue screen error and i faced with this BSOD frequently that i can't open windows more than once. so i reformatted HDD and installed O/S again. when i plugged my own external HDD, computer gave an another blue screen error again. so i found the sevenforums.com and explained my issue. they adviced to use Memtest86 for checking my Rams because when i sent my DUMP File they warned me about a memory corruption. and finally setup the last version of Memtest86 which is on beta state. now during the test Memtest86 recognize lots of errors. i uploaded caps of test as you can see. i want to state that i am using windows 7 ultimate - 64 bit and i did this test with DUAL RAMS which uses the first and the third slots. i hope i explained my issue properly and if you want i can send my DUMP File. so is there anybody can help me please_?

You can swap the memory modules and see if the failing location stays the same or follows the memory module, which would help to determine if the problem is with the memory or the motherboard. Most likely it is the memory, which means you need to get the memory module replaced. Some memory has a lifetime warranty, but generally that is aftermarket memory, not the memory which came with the machine.

Depending on how much memory is in the machine, you can remove the bad memory and run the machine with less memory.

If the memory location and bit error are the same, then it would most likely be the motherboard. If the memory location changes and/or the bit error changes, then it would be the memory module. Most often it is the memory module, but it is best to confirm that unless you can have both replaced.

I've had memtest86+ report bad memory as good, but if memtest86+ finds errors, it's a good bet the RAM is bad.

Note that Windows 7 has a built in memory tester you can run to help confirm your findings,Memory Diagnostics Tool

while i am testing the first ram on the first slot i take a photo an uploaded it. sorry for the hotspot (my camera is out of work with some functions). but i guess you can see and recognize the in errors and adresses. in addition, windows memory tools didn't find any error. so what should i do_?. waiting until the test finish or reboot the computer_?

It is not required to let the test finish if you get errors.

Did you run the test with the second module only?

Sorry, I did not see your question about letting the tester finish if errors are found. I agree, if errors are found, it serves no purpose letting the test continue.
