So, I have a friend who's computer is crashing every hour on the hour (give or take) and receiving the BSOD. I went into the event viewer to see what was going on. I didn't have a lot of time to check it out, but I saw the most common error was concernng the application Event ID: 10.

This is what it says (at least the main bits):

Error 0x80041003 Events cannot be delivered through this filter until the problem is corrected. 

I found this for event id 10: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2545227 

But it says that "These events are not indicative of any issue in the system and can be safely ignored." So I don't know if this would be the cause of a blue screen.

As for event id 1000 I found these:

http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_7-windows_programs/application-error-event-id-1000/1c92d898-73b4-47b4-b276-710a8662760c

These seemed the most helpful, but I didn't get as good of a look at the event id error 1000 to see what exactly it was that was wrong.

He has windows 7, 32gbs of ram, core i7 950 and a gigbyte motherboard. He wasn't sure which one, and I didn't have time to check before I had to leave. As I said before, it's the event id 10 that happens every hour, but from what microsoft was saying, it must not be the reason for the blue screen? I didn't get a chance to look at security or system, so I don't know if it would be anything else. Any feedback would be awesome. Even if it's just explaining what it is these errors mean.

Its the RAM, put in 1 stick at a time and do a memtest.

Really? He just bought new ram, but it's in only 4 of the six slots while the previous filled all six with no difference. And I wouldn't really know how to do a memtest. Blue screens have always been a terror of mine.

Put in only 1 stick at a time and try it, if one of the stick errors or BSOD's, that stick is faulty.

Okay, I'll try it. Is there also the posibility that it's a port?

Yes, if all the sticks pass the test, and you can try it another PC and the sticks are fine, its either another problem or the port. Which ends up being the hardest thing to find.

There's a few possibilities.. It could be that one of the RAM sticks is defective. Another reason would be that it's incompatible with the motherboard. Like GTR12 said, perform a Memtest. Feel free to use these instructions if you want. Last issue is the ram slots on the motherboard are f'ed. You can dual-channel in the other two slots, but ultimately you'll want to return the board if you're within RMA 30 days if you find it is truly defective. Cheers.

Okay, I'll give it a try! It may take a coupe of days, but I'll let you guys know what happens. Thanks again! :)
