Is My RAM Failing?

Hello,

My PC has been acting very strange over the past few weeks. It keeps giving me a BSOD every so often (once every 30 minutes to 2 hours).
When I look up the stop codes, they often point to driver issues. However, all my drivers are updated and appear to be fine. The codes also suggest faulty or bad RAM.
I need to understand if the RAM is causing these issues or if it's still driver-related.
Here are the stop codes I'm seeing:
- SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION
- PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA
- IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL
- KERNEL_SECURITY_CHECK_FAILURE

Thank you in advance for your help!

Sorry to hear about your issues. Those stop codes often point to memory problems. To rule out RAM as the culprit, you can run a memory test. I'd recommend using a tool that will thoroughly check your RAM for errors. If it finds any, you'll know that the RAM is likely the issue.

Have you tried reseating the RAM sticks? Sometimes they can become loose or have a bad connection. Just make sure your PC is powered off and unplugged before you do this.
