 Hey I've gotten about 2 BSOD Kernel_Security_check_failure , Can't find the minidump file, it's not where MS is saying when I googled (windows 8)   according to their website it's  Program Files/Windows kits/something   but theres no windows kits on mine?     Does anyone know?    I looked up online this guy was saying do this  




1-Memtest. (You can read more about running memtest here)
Download a copy of Memtest86 and burn the ISO to a CD using Iso Recorder or another ISO burning program. Get it here
Boot from the CD, and leave it running for at least 5 or 6 passes.
Just remember, any time Memtest reports errors, it can be either bad RAM or a bad motherboard slot.
Test the sticks individually, and if you find a good one, test it in all slots.

If a known good stick fails in one motherboard slot but not another it is probably the slot. ( http://answers.micro...2-5316839874ce)

However, I dont have any blank CD's to do what this is saying, and I don't think it's my memory. 

do you think it's a driver? are there any other things that can cause this?

Under what circumstances does this error occur?


Have you installed, updated, or changed the configuration of any software recently on the computer?
