    I really need help! I have a gaming pc, and the last couple of days I've been getting the bsod. First it was the 01e error, now it's the 01a error. I ran a memory management scan, first scan picked up a hardware issue, second scan came back with no issues. Pc works fine for couple of days and then the issues start all over again. Drivers are up to date. I haven't tested my ram manually yet. What should I do? I am not exactly savvy with pc's. But will take any help I can get!

    Go download memtest86 iso file. https://www.memtest86.com/ Right click on iso file and choose Burn disk image. ( to a blank CD/DVD ) Then boot with it and let it run for 4 hours. Sometimes it will show an error very soon and you can stop then. But other times it takes several hours for it to detect problems. Anyways, if a problem is found, you remove all RAM sticks, and insert back one at a time. Then rum memtest again on that one stick. If that stick does not fail in 4 hours, try the next RAM stick until you find which one is bad.
