    I am not sure what all this mean, but after a while my computer will Blue Screen and restart. I have only caught it doing this once, but if I leave my pc on through the night I will wake up to "Windows has recovered from an unexpected shutdown" with this code.
    On the blue screen i only caught the words "Page Fault" if that helps. Can anyone help me diagnos this problem?

    Thanks

    (edit) I just disabled automatic restart so I should be able to read more of the blue screen message next time.

    I had a feeling, thanks.

    I happen to be waiting on an RMA update so I can replace this memory. This is just a new problem that I haven't seen.

    Could be a glitch in bios also when computer goes into sleep mode.
    Do some research on your board and see if anyone else is having that problem.
    Might be able to fix it with a bios update.

    Also use memtest86 and check your memory to see if you have a problem there.

    I have my computer set to never go into sleep mode and my bios is flashed to the latest version. I will run memtest as soon as I can find my flash drive, I guess its only bootable.


    got a new BSOD yay.

    this time MEMORY MANAGEMENT

    0x0000001a (0x0000000000005003, 0xfffff70001080000, 0x0000000000006b82, 0x000000000f50c009)
