                                     ram:8 gb ballistix sport 2666mhz dual rank.    (single stick)

                                     gpu : gtx 1060 3gb


I was running windows and i kept everything updated. and it was everything ok.

From last week i started getting various bsod ,the most common was ''bad memory management''

I tried reinstalling windows clean but now i'm not able to install  it anymore  couse i get ''error 0x80070570'' during installation.

I tryed running memtest86 and i get over 65535 errors.

In one test it's not even able to end it

It can be bad ram?

Thank you for contacting Crucial. I am sorry to hear about the issues that you are experiencing with your PC. It is very likely that the memory you have has failed and needs to be replaced.


The last thing that you can try would be do download and create new Windows install media. The errors that you are receiving can point to either failing memory, or possible corruption or missing files in the install media. If you have already attempted the install with new media, then would need to move on to replacing the memory. If we find the memory at fault, please contact us directly using the information that I have provided below so that we can get you taken care of.
