  • Memtest errors, blue-screens

    Hey everyone. I'm not sure if this is the place where I post my error logs but I'm having problems.

    I recently bought Corsair Vengeance ddr4 2x8 2400mhz rams (
    and I've been having blue screens while playing games. So I did a memtest and these are the results

    I don't know what to do and what's causing these problems. What should I do? I'm in desperate need of help

    The text you posted above doesn't look to be the results from the RAM test. It looks to be benchmark results, which don't contain any information about the RAM errors.

    However the screen shot shows a summary of the memory test and some errors. So it is sure that something is wrong.

    I would initially assume it was the RAM that was bad, but there is a small chance it might be the CPU, motherboard, slot, or BIOS firmware.

      How can I test my rams, who could help me? I recently built this rig with last of my money :/

        Start by testing 1 stick of RAM at a time.

          Alright, but I don't know how to test my rams using memtest86, is there a guide that shows how to do it step by step? I'm new at this, sorry.

            I don't understand the question, as you already posted the test result.

            If you have made the USB drive, Select it as the boot device in BIOS & boot.
            It will auto-run the test.

              I did, however it gave me some options and when I did 'run test' that lines of information were the outcome.

              I'm trying to figure out what is wrong with my rams.

                I bought two new sticks, and problem still exists. Here is the latest report in HTML format:

                could it be my cpu or hard-drive?

                  MemTest86 boots from a USB drive. Without using your hard drive. So there is zero chance it is your hard drive at fault (you can even disconnect the hard drive if you want and then repeat the tests).

                  So if you have tested two sets of RAM it is more likely now that it is the CPU, motherboard, slot, or BIOS firmware.

                  Easy next steps are,
                  1) Check for new motherboard firmware.
                  2) Move the two RAM sticks to the currently unused RAM slots then retest..
