Windows 10 Blue screen

Hello, my computer was working fine since months, playing video games for hours, letting it on for days…

Then I decided to reinstall windows 10 which was a huge mistake, I installed W10 on many computers in my life and I dealt with all kind of problems but not this one, especially my PC which I know him better than my family.

Anyway, I made a copy of W10 on USB using Microsoft’s tool, boot on it, deleted all partitions until an allocated one left (in which windows will divide it by default into other partitions) and run the installation.

During the whole installation process (from usb booting until the new desktop appears) I got around 20 or more Errors and BSODs on random time locations (in each try), I used different USBs and different ISO files with no luck, even when I manage to get at least windows to work I cannot install the updates, the OS crashs.

I decided to install the drivers and updates on safe mode and it worked for 2 weeks, I got my games back and everything working as usual, but somehow the problem reappeared suddenly, crashs randomly, programs won’t run anymore (no errors they just won’t open), browser issues…

So far I ran a stress test on my CPU and GPU in the same time using FurMark for 30mins and nothing happened, which means that they are fine, all what’s left is my ram but I didn’t test them yet.

  • CPU: i5-7500
  • GPU: GTX 1050
  • RAM: 12GB (4Gb-2133MHz + 8Gb-2400MHz)
  • MB: MSI H110M-Pro VD
  • HDD: 3TB (1TB + 1TB + 500GB + 500GB)
  • PSU: 750W XFX

I don’t Have any thermal issues, every component cooled.

So no blue screen error codes, minidumps or at least a Reliability History report of any of the crashes.

How are we supposed to know what went wrong?

According to "Windows Memory Diagnostics Tool" I had a memory problem indeed as I expected, and unfortunately it was the 8GB stick, I'm have no luck, but why the memory choose to fail after reinstalling windows before that nothing happened not a single sign of failure.



Just saw your comments after writing "Answer" below. You have tried reseating the RAM, I presume?

Replacement not too dear:
