    Yesterday, I came home from work to see that my computer had done a reset on its own. When I turned it on, I found the Win 10 Anniversary update waiting for me. Since then, I have had several crashes with games, and even blue screens.

    The BSOD's go by so fast, that I had to turn off the automatic restart just to read the error as STOP CODE: MEMORY MANAGEMENT. Apparently, this means that there is a problem pertaining with my RAM.

    A few months ago, I came on here with a similar problem after my PSU blew and I had to get anothr one. I solved that by buying 2 new RAM cards to replace the ones inside. I ran a memory diagnostic which showed no problems, and right now I'm running a system file check scanner as well. If both of these come back fine and there are still problems, I may have to get new RAM sticks.

    I have a 2 year warranty on them, so replacing them again would be no problem. However, before I do that, I was wondering if the problem might be my motherboard or CPU as they are the only components still used from the computer from when the Power Supply blew? These would be my 3rd set of damaged RAM cards in a year, and that just strikes me as weird, especially since they are designed to withstand overclocking conditions.

    As the computer shut dow/reset for some unknown reason, I'd suspect that unknown event to be related.

    Could be power related (ie: power surge or dirty power), power supply (if you are using a non-Tier one model, or possibly the motherboard.

    Bottom line, some event occurred which caused this issue and it likely isn't related to previous issues.

    My friend says it has to do with the new Win 10 anniversary edition. That everyone is having issues since it's release. I opted to go back to an earlier build of Win 10, and hopefully that will do the trick, but if not, I will keep everyone informed.

    Absolutely incorrect. I am running the 1607 update on four systems here; no problems at all. One motherboard does not even list win10 support; even that system has no problems.

    Start by posting ALL of your exact system specs ie exact mb, exact ram, exact pw supply, etc, etc. Do not post "500W" pw supply; post the exact brand and model# Do that for ALL of your parts.
