Could you take a picture of the exact error and post it? I am having a hard time visualizing this. It it a bluescreen, or a pop up message? Is there a error report or crash dump we could access?

Since you have switched out your RAM and updated your firmware, it is likely a software problem.

What software is causing it? I don't know. If i had some type of crash report providing in-depth technical information, I might be able to help narrow it down....depends.

If i were to guess, I would say that software is causing a memory leak....which is screwing up Windows ability to manage your RAM.

Can you replicate the problem in safe mode? If you can, than it is likely coming from one of the drivers loaded in safe mode. If you can not replicate the problem in safe mode, It could be pretty much any program with low level memory access.

One other thought that popped into my mind....did you disable virtual memory? Some people disable virtual memory to increase the lifespan of their SSD,....this can cause weird problems with some software.

A google search of the problem pointed out that Internet browser add-ons and java related things are prone to causing this type of error. Are you always surfing the web when this error occurs?

Let me know if you fix it, or find anything out.

That photo is too small for me to read, but the fact that it is a Windows pop-up and not a blue screen message confirms that it is a software issue, like a memory leak.

Did you try a system restore? Can you replicate the problem in safe mode?
