This has been an on going issue now. I keep getting different types of BS'sOD. I kept getting a memory_management BSOD, and my computer would have a hard time booting.I narrowed it down to a RAM issue and I believe I had a bad chip. I bought some new RAM and it was working fine for a short period of time. I thought it was a virus so I ran a scan and 'BDS/Prorat.JYP' came up and it turned out to be a bad one, so I re-installed windows, but I still get the BS'sOD.

Here's a list about the types of BS'sOD.

memory_management
pfn_list_corrupt
bad_pool_hearder
system_service_exception

If I can get any help on how I can narrow down and finally fix the issue, it would be VERY appreciated.

Thanks,

Sam

Hello,

Are you able to run another memory diagnostic please, memory can go bad even if you have replaced it. Did you ever run a memory diagnostic the first time or just replace the RAM on your belief?

I didn't the first time, but I tested them separately. I just ran the tool but it said no errors were found. I believe I ran this once a couple days ago, and the very first time it said there were hardware issues or something. Every time i used the tool after that it still said no errors.

What tool are your running? If it's not, please run Memtest86+ for few hours (preferably overnight), it should be able to run forever and a day without a single error.

Cheers

I was just running the windows memory diagnostic. I ran memtest over night and on the right side where it said errors, it would like over 100000 and still going, does this mean the memory is bad, my computer has been BSOD free for the last few days, so I don't know what's going on.

Yes! Even 1 error and I would say to replace the RAM. Now the trick is to work out which RAM module is faulty (if you have more than one). The method here is to remove all but one stick and test. Then rotate until you have tested all of the RAM modules individually. When I do this I make 3 piles. 1) Untested 2) Tested - PASS 3) Tested - FAIL. Then eventually everything goes from pile 1 into either pile 2 or 3.

So when you put them together do they still fail?
