Test Memory:
Run memtest86+ version 5.01 for at least 8 passes.
Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool

This may take hours so plan to run it overnight.
Testing takes approximately 1 - 2 hours /GB RAM
Just 1 error is a fail and you can abort testing
Then test 1 RAM module at a time in the same DIMM each for 8 or more passes
When Memtest86+ has completed 8 or more passes take a picture and post an image and upload to your reply

I had a similar problem last year. Every time I booted my system a blue screen would appear and the system would just be stuck on that. So I took it to the service center and later I found out it was actually my RAM problem.

So check your RAM or let an expert have a look in it.
