Windows keeps crashing. - Page 2

post #11 of 25
Thread Starter 
I just tested 1 stick of ram, worked okay, I played a bit of crysis at max, opened up about 20 tabs of youtube videos, no crashing for around 15 minutes. I'm about to try the other stick.

Both sticks work fine individually going to try both now.

EDIT: I just tried both sticks together again, crashed after a few minutes of testing. I opened about 70 tabs of youtube, flash crashed, when I went to close chrome the computer crashed. i also unplugged the mouse at the exact timne it crashed. Could it be something with the USBs?

thats not really how you test ram...
http://www.memtest.org/
download
burn cd
boot from cd
run and check both ram at the same time. do a whole test.

And then for more detailed testing you can test each stick individually with memtest or memtest86+.

I know about memtest, I was just running some stuff to make see if the ram worked. I guess I'll do that now, too.

EDIT: Actually, my computer seems to be running fine now, I 'll do an extensive memtest tonight while I sleep. If something happens, I'll post here.

EDIT2: It crashed again. I wasn't really doing anything, just surfing the web. Running memtest86 now. How many passes should I do?

Finished memtest 2 passes no errors but when I booted up Win7 it froze in approx. 10 sec. I think the culprit might be Google Chrome for some reason. Crashing never happens when I play games, but seems to happen 90 percent of the time while I'm on Chrome. I'm going to try to uninstall it and see if my problems persist.

I had a weird issue with µtorrent locking up my Phenom II box on really large d/l's - like, hard locking it. I ended up tracing it to chipset drivers in the end and a clean install fixed things.
