    BSOD when using a certain RAM slot


    Hello

    I've been having this BSOD issue for quite some time now during certain games and finally decided I should do something about it.

    Things I have done already:
    • formatted my pc
    • memtest (two times overnight no issues found)
    • Updated bios to a new version but not the newest
    • played around with my RAM sticks

    The last thing is where things get interesting. I've got 4 slots on my motherboard as per the manual I am using slot A2 and B2. However this configuration gives me a BSOD after 5-1 hour of stress testing(prime985)When I run one stick in slot A2 it is having the same issue. When I put the same stick in B2 there is no issue for over 8+ hours (longest I've run it for). I've tried reading and understanding the minidump files but came up blank. So I am hoping a more experienced guy can help me out with my issues. But my guess right now is that my MB has become defective, I really hope this is not the case though

    :)

    Put the other stick in B2 and test it. That should tell you something.

    I'm doing that now, really hoping someone can find a hint in the crashdump / other information though.

    And turn off driver verifier. Added more information, and I already have it turned off. Because when I had it on to test, my computer wouldn't even boot anymore so I had to do system restore.

    The purpose of Driver Verifier is to make your computer BSOD.

    Did the test with stick 1 and 2 in slot B2 and it worked both times. The moment I move one to A2 it starts failing again.

    That sounds like a bad motherboard slot. See what happens if you put the sticks in slots the other 2 slots.

    Please let me know if you have any BSODs with the ram in the other 2 slots. I feel confident you have a bad Dimm slot. I just want to see if you have just 1 bad slot or more than 1. A bad stick of ram will throw errors in any slot you put it in. If it only throws errors in one slot, but passes memtest in the other slots, it is a bad slot not bad ram.

    You can try to RMA the board because of the bad slot, without any more testing, or you can see if the other 2 slots are OK and use them. The decision of whether to RMA the board will be up to you. If it were mine, I would RMA it. We don't know, and have no way of determining, if it is simply a bad slot or if it is another problem which will eventually get worse in time.

    BSOD when using a certain RAM slot

    I was really hoping someone elses opinion would be different from mine don't have much experience with debugging BSOD's but since it where so many different ones yeah I was right something worse was up than just bad drivers.

    The pc won't boot up if I put two sticks in slots different than A2 and B2.

    Just a general hardware question then, do you really think it's possible for a motherboard to suddenly die off a slot? It was fine for like 10 months before I got the issues.

    Well, I think anything is possible with computers and computer components. I know yours isn't the first one that worked for months then suddenly developed a problem. You, just as a test, could replace the ram with another set of ram compatible with your board and see if you have the same problem. I looked at your dump files and although few offered much information, all were a different error code and different info. That is typical for ram problems.
