Even one is too many.
I had a question. Can faulty RAM modules cause Blue Screens of Death?
I have a fairly powerful machine, Q6600, Two 320mb EVGA GTS, XMS Dual Matched 4 Gigs, 780i XFX Motherboard, Two 250gig Caviar 7200 Hard Disks, windows XP.
I ran memtest with all four gigs of ram in, the results were interesting to say the least. On test 8 of memtest i was getting a ridiculous amount of errors, in the hundred of thousands (the real number not even worth mentioning), in dimm slot 0. So I remove that ram module and run memtest again in the remaining 3 ram modules I get 105 errors.
I was wondering if ram can cause blue screens of death that include system files such as splitter.sys, ntfs.sys, gdi32.sys, and dominantly very unstable systems. BSOD's were "Page Fault in non paged area" and "irql driver not less or equal".
And is 105 errors spread over 3 dimms worth getting new ram over.
