I can't find any remainings of opera and when I wanted to uninstall it in the add/remove program it gives an error.
So now, when our problem with those AVs is solved, should I test my pc? Or should I make some more steps?
If BSODs happen, I need to just buy a new ram right?

For now, use the computer as you normally would to see if you get any BSOD.

See if things run ok for at least the next couple of days only then would I suggest that you consider upgrading your RAM.

The BSOD happened twice. I mean, my computer froze as always but didn't give BSOD, it was just my screen, I couldn't move the mouse or click anything so I had to restart it with a button. Minidumps haven't created. Do you think it is a memory bottleneck as u said earlier?

What was the computer being used for at the time.

For now I would suggest that you leave just the two matching sticks of RAM in the computer, without knowing what the computer was being used for we cannot comment on any bottleneck but having an odd stick could be causing issues, 16GB of RAM is plenty + it will not affect the speed as the matching sticks are what is slowing down the odd stick.

I was using the browser in both cases.
Maybe I will pull out 2x 2133 and check my PC on 2666? Or should I remove one 2133 and leave 2666 + 2133

So no load on the computer whatsoever.

Your RAM question was already addressed in my reply #24 :whistle:

The computer has frozen again and luckily (or unfortunately) it crashed (dpc_watchdog_violation as always) and this time a minidump file was created. During this time, I had a browser running on my computer and the game was minimized in the background. Tomorrow morning, when I get up, I will take out these RAM sticks and test as you said in reply #24.
Minidump file in the attachment, if you could have a look at it, maybe we will find out something new, but anyways I will do things as u mentioned in reply #24.
Greetings,
Oliwer. :)

BSOD again but this time a new one - IRQL less or not equal, which I think is related to RAM? I might be wrong.
Minidump in attachement :)

First crash was network related Name tcpip.sys

Second only mentions a game called Among Us but nothing driver related, could be memory related or even your AV complaining.

Did either crash happen when you only had the two matching sticks of RAM in the board.

Hi.
No, those crashes were still on my 3 sticks of RAM. I haven't had time yesterday to pull it out, gonna do it today and update you if anything happens on those 2 sticks.
Greetings:)

Hell,o.

I had my RAM like that:
slot #1: 2666
slot #2: 2133
slot #3:
slot #4: 2133

My friend's not at home and I'm not really into and good at IT things, and to pull out and stick in RAM in my PC is really hard. I could only pull out those 2 with 2133.
I am currently on 1 stick 8gb with 2666. I know it's not what u said but I had no possibility of doing anything else. I will test my pc on this setup for like 2 days until the first BSOD, when it happens I will make then with my friend, as u said in reply #24. If everything's okay, then the faulty should be ram that I pulled out?
Hope u are not angry, but I couldn't make it any else.
Greetings,
Oliwer.

Hello Oliwer,

We would never suggest that you do anything that you are unsure of so no worries about holding off on removing the matching sticks of RAM, having only the one stick does mean that it is only working in single channel at 1333MHz and because of the speed of your CPU it is also causing high memory usage.

Memory
Type: Unknown
Size: 8192 MBytes
Channels #: Single
DRAM Frequency: 1333.7 MHz
CAS# Latency (CL): 16 clocks
RAS# to CAS# Delay (tRCD): 18 clocks
RAS# Precharge (tRP): 18 clocks
Cycle Time (tRAS): 39 clocks
Command Rate (CR): 2T
Physical Memory
Memory Usage: 63 %

Yeah, that's true. The BSOD just happened, after about 2 hours or so.
Below is the minidump file.
I will call my friend today and I will do what u said, slot #1 2666, slot #3 2133 in dual channel both.

Network drivers were again the cause of the crash, ndil.sys this time though.

As you are using a LAN connection I suggest that you disable any wireless devices and uninstall the drivers for them, they cannot cause conflicts then.

Create a new system restore point.
Disable and uninstall the drivers for the devices below;

Intel(R) Wireless Bluetooth(R)
IBtUsb_Filter_00
Intel(R) Wireless-AC 9560 160MHz
Microsoft Wi-Fi Direct Virtual Adapter
Microsoft Wi-Fi Direct Virtual Adapter #2

When using only the one stick of RAM it should be in slot A2 which is the second slot away from the CPU, when using two sticks of RAM they should be in slots A2 and B2 as can be seen in the attachment below, you should also avoid mixing the RAM and stick to using the matching 2133MHz sticks. still slow but you will at least have dual channel while you wait on getting the correct spec of RAM.

I uninstalled:
Intel(R) Wireless Bluetooth(R)
Intel(R) Wireless-AC 9560 160MHz
Microsoft Wi-Fi Direct Virtual Adapter

I've done it in device manager after clicking ,,show hidden devices", but couldn't find those 2 more. Should I test my pc now without those 3 drivers or how could I delete those 2 missing drivers?
IBtUsb_Filter_00
Microsoft Wi-Fi Direct Virtual Adapter #2

Delete them, restart and test.

When you next reply after testing can you also acknowledge that you have read and understood the RAM information that was provided.

I uninstalled them but after every restart they are literally back. I did it twice and they automatically install on every start.
And yes, I understand the information about ram but I can't change my stick today, can do it only tomorrow.

EDIT:
I checked thru

Intel® Driver & Support Assistant​

app that I had 2 out of date drivers, both related to WIFI and Bluetooth, maybe that's why I had BSODs? I updated them, I had created a restore point before.

When you next restart the computer can you go into the BIOS and see if you are able to disable the wireless and bluetooth devices, you should then be able to uninstall those drivers and them not come back.

RAM info acknowledged and no rush, do it when you have your friend helping you.

Hi.
I went to BIOS and checked literally every setting that I have but couldn't find anything related to Bluetooth/wireless.
Also, the BSOD happened again.
Except for 2 ram sticks that I pulled out with 2133mhz, I have one more 2666 8gb ram. Should I plug it into the current one?
And maybe my BSODs are related to Samsung Evo 970 pro disc? I heard that they had several problems.
Greetings,
Oliwer.
