Watch Question


Try doing clean boot


restart the computer and then check.

Also check in safe mode with networking.

If you are not getting errors then its due to programs.

Also check in device manager for any yellow marks. Could be cause by faulty driver.

it seems to point to ram, i suggest to run a memtest86+ first, from    www.memtest.org
note that in some cases, it has been due to memory card readers, on board ram of motherboard, etc ...
Probably incompatible antivirus. Go into safemode and uninstall the antivirus.
