Re: P50 Blue Screens, Samsung 950 Pro, and 32GB of DDR4 Memory, Windows 10 Home

You should try Memtest86+ instead of regular Memtest86, as well as leaving it running overnight for more than 70 minutes.

At first glance, those BSOD messages sound like memory problems. Maybe try one stick of RAM at a time?

My problem ultimately was resolved by getting rid of the Corsair memory which I suspect had Hynix memory modules on it.  I read elsewhere that Skylake was incompatible with Hynix memory modules, although I do not know whether this was fixed via either a BIOS update or newer versions of the Hynix memory modules.  I do know that, until I removed the Corsair memory from the system, I continued to have problems.


I am not certain whether this is at all similar to the problem you are experiencing.
