    Information Please download from this site only Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool in the middle of the page are the Download links, you can download the ISO.zip or the Auto USB Flash Drive installer.zip
    Extract the Zip file. If you chose the ISO image, burn it to a CD using Windows Disk Image Burner or any Image burner you may have. If you downloaded the Auto USB installer, extract it, insert your USB 2.0 Flash Drive and take note of the drive letter. Run the installer, select the Flash Drive Letter, check the format box and press next. It will install memtest86+ to a flash drive. You can use either V4.20 or V5.01. Boot from your selected media. If you use V5.01 it will tell you to press certain buttons at the start, please press no buttons. The test will begin on it's own and continue to run until you stop it. It needs to run for 8 complete passes or until you receive an error. If you receive an error, stop the test. Even 1 error is a fail. Each pass tests a different part of the ram and each of the 10 tests in each pass tests something different. It takes a minimum of 8 passes to completely test the ram, more passes are better. It is quite a long test and will take several hours depending on how much ram you have. Due to the time length it is best to run overnight. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask​

    Did you run it for 8 complete passes? That's what it takes to completely test the ram and with 8 GB of ram should take 9-10 hours. I only have one dump file to go on and it says it is your ram. If you did run it for 8 complete passes all at the same time, then we will have to try something else.

  7. Wait, I thought the entire process was automatic. I guess only 1 pass completed? The program didn't continue testing the ram after it hit 100% so I restarted my pc, and went to my daily tasks on it

    If you download from the link I posted above, and only there, it should run until you stop it. If you will use Version 4.20 you will not have any problems. Version 5.01 is basically the same thing, just newer and supposed to run on multi core systems. But if you push the buttons they ask you to, many people have had trouble with it. When I used it, it ran 1 pass and just stopped. It will be fine if you do not push any buttons. It will start by itself in about 10 seconds and run until you stop it by pushing escape. Please run it a minimum of 8 complete passes, more is better. If you get an error, you can stop the test. Even 1 error is unacceptable.

    If you can't use the one time boot menu key, you can change the boot menu in BIOS to boot from the USB or DVD drive first. When finished, change it back.

  11. Alright, so I've ran memtest for 12 hours and there doesn't seem to be any errrors

    OK, but you didn't use the link I posted in my instructions. It does make a big difference in which test, but we'll just wait. Was it still running when you took that screenshot? It says pass 1/4. I see the wall time is 12 hours though. If you will, the next BSOD you have, please run the BSOD Posting Instructiona again and I'll see what it says. BSOD - Posting Instructions

    Also, please fill out your system specs in as much detail as possible. Please give manufacturer and Model for every component you have and the version of Windows 10 you are running. If you would like to know what we would like, at the bottom left of this post, click 'My System Specs' and see mine. Please include your PSU and CPU Cooler. This may help.

    Yes, it was still running. I guess it only stops once I press esc like you said, and will do regarding the next bsod

    You may want to wait. You only had 1 dump file. So, it could have just been a one time thing that will not happen again. Plus it is easier to get a picture of what is happening with several dump files. So, it's up to you, but the dump file clearly states it was memory corruption. Then again, it wouldn't be the first time a dump file blamed the wrong thing.
