    Well, it's been a long time since the last time i posted but right now i need help.

    My computer was giving me BSOD at random times, while using different software (MSN, Games, Winamp, Firefox, etc). It's the Memory Dump BSOD.

    So, now i formatted and while doing a fresh install of 7, it rebooted itself and then the windows installer asked to start the installation all over again.

    Did that. Finished the fresh install. Going to install the first program, avast and MEMORY DUMP ON A FRESH INSTALL :banghead::banghead:

    So fellow TPUers. Any ideas for this problem??!?

    Well, it could be anything, but i believe the most common problem causing BSOD is bad memory.

    Your mixture of memory sticks could increase the risk of that.


    You could start checking by leaving only 1 memory stick into place, and try if that solves it, if not, try it with another memory stick, and so forth.
    LittleLizard says thanks.

    tried both sticks and still same problem. removed old hdd, same problem. will try what micropage said about cleaning the slots, otherwise i think that one or both slots are dead.
