Blue screens on X25-V

I am running windows7 on the X25-V and I have been getting blue screens daily for about a month. It seems to do it more frequently when I am in a video game. Any solutions or ideas?

what indicators are pointing you to the X25-V? did you just change to it recently (and hence feel it is at fault?)

what details are given in the blue screen?

perhaps something like "blue screen view" (http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/blue_screen_view.html) would be handy to look at all the minidumps - see if there's a commonly referenced file.

I get a few different error's every time it crashes. Windows says something about the memory, could it be a ram problem?

I had intermittent problems with bsod events recently that indicated a range of errors including storage problems, however it was bad memory. I had to repeat Memtest 4 times in sequence before it picked up the errors. Memtest can be downloaded here:

http://www.memtest.org/

It is worth running at least 6 repeat tests in sequence to rule out a memory problem (just leaving it running and it will repeat the tests). Any failure it detects is unacceptable and the memory should be replaced.

Since some memory errors only show up after a cold boot (ie. the system has been off for some number of hours), some of the memory test runs should be immediately after the machine has sat off for awhile, and not after the machine has been reset in any way.

I've been recording all my errors and all of them have to do with pageable files.

Anything I should do?
