I have an Alienware Aurora R2 which I've been upgrading ever since I bought it. Now it has 16gb of ram (4x4gb kingston). Since I added the last 8gb (2x4Gb) I keep getting the memory management BSOD, but when i run the memory diagnosis of Windows 8, it says everything is fine with the memory. I even try removing the memory and testing it on another computer that works fine and it seems there is nothing wrong with RAM.

I've finished running Memtest86 and it shows no errors, after almost 2 hours it shows all tests passed. But when i start a game (Rome II) it crashes again with the same BSOD.

Could it be either BIOS or MotherBoard? Not knowing what is broken is driving me crazy, has anyone had the same issue? I am using Windows 8.

Below the details of the dump file, is that information enough? Thank you guys for the support

There is no such thing as Windows 8 Home Premium do you mean Windows 8 which is also known as Windows 8 Core by chance? –  Ramhound Nov 19 '13 at 18:35

Ramhound you are right, my bad, Windows 8 Pro. –  user275336 Nov 19 '13 at 18:37
    
Take a picture of the BSOD. Get the details of it. I can't believe you got a BSOD and didn't think to include anything of what it said. Particularly the code it gives. It's like saying you got an error message and not saying what the error message was. –  barlop Nov 19 '13 at 18:49
