Hello there,
 
So i have been having some problems with my computer and i have been getting some random BSODs. I did the windows memory diagnostics and in the test it said that i had some hardware issues. When the computer restarted, i got a popup saying "Your computer has a memory problem." i tried doing memtest and i made a bootable cd but i wasn't able to change the Bios settings to boot from CD. i spent a few hours to no avail trying that. The only options were "Windows boot manager" and "UEFI: General." Which i have no idea what UEFI:general is. I just upgraded my motherboard and processor last week but i already had these problems since before i upgraded. I just want a suggestion in what i should do next?

CPU:                Intel I7 4790K
GPU:               ATI Radeon R9 280x
Motherboard:  Asus H97 Gaming 3
RAM:               8Gb (4Gb x 2) Kingston
 
Thanks

Memtest86 is more accurate. Did you tried testing one by one stick to determine which one causes issue ?

No, i have not used memtest to test my ram and i am not able to change the the boot sequence to CD. I spent hours trying to chanhe it but there was no choice to change it to CD. The RAM sticksnare pretty old and when i changed the motherboard i did not change the RAM

Thanks

Did you tried to burn it on USB with Rufus and then try again (Memtest)?
