    So start by swapping out the memory and see if it still happens. Also you could try reinstalling windows.
    Things are exactly as they seem.

    Already done that, also got the problem about RAM (8GB but usable 3.96) fixed swapping RAM.

    That sounds more like you're using a 32-bit OS to me. Hit Start -> Settings -> System -> About. Roughly half-way down the page it will show "System type". Does that show as 32-bit or 64-bit?

    Sounds like you eighther have a RAM-problem or you do have a 32-bit system (unlikely it's the case)

    If you are certain you're using a 64 bit OS then it seems either a ram stick isn't seated properly (remove both sticks and insert again, firmly), isn't working properly (test one stick at a time to confirm both work), or that a memory slot on the motherboard isn't working (once you've confirmed both sticks work in one slot, try placing the other stick in another of the 3 remaining slots. You'll want to pair them correctly according to your MB instructions to ensure you get dual channel performance out of them, typically slot 1&2 / 3&4 or 1&3 / 2&4.

    Isn't BSOD a hidden feature of Windows 10?

    Not that I'm doubting, but I think they're just looking for you to confirm that it's 64 bit after you reinstalled windows as noted above.

    Is this a fresh install of Windows? Cause if not, maybe you should fresh install it.

    The BSOD should have a QR code you can scan to get more help with your problem. If you can't scan the QR code, at least let us know what the message says when the machine is BSODing.

    Could try running with each stick individually to make sure one of the modules isn't dead. Does it register the full amount in the System control panel, e.g.:

    "Installed memory (RAM): 8.00GB (3.96GB usable)"?

    If so either you're on a 32-bit OS, which you mention you are not (this is also visible in the System control panel) or Windows is borked (though you also mentioned you've reinstalled that, so unlikely); otherwise you're likely experiencing a hardware problem with either the CPU, motherboard, or RAM.

    You can also go into Event Viewer > System and check for error reports around the time the computer last BSODed, should have an 0x code you/we can research.

    I'd be curious to see an image of your System control panel.
    Super casual.

    Windows started saying you have x usable with Windows 10. My machine at work says 32.0 GB (31.9 GB usable) in system properties and 17.5/31.9 GB in task manager.

    I've done that one time, found no solutions from Microsoft pages

    I've solved it, back to Windows 7, and think about, not a single problem or BSOD, i think i've older hardware to run Windows 10 without problems, even if the first release give me no problems, thank you all for help

    You are not alone. I've also been getting lots of BSODs for the last few weeks (okay, "lots" being about one every two or three days but still)

    Few things I would do.

    #1 Run CrystalDiskInfo and see the status of your drive. SSDs don't go bad easy, but they do go bad. So run that program to see if there's anything out of place.

    #2 Reinstall Windows. Windows update can break things and this maybe related to that.

    #3 Run memtest86 to see if there's any ram errors.


    Alternatively you can download Linux Mint 18.1 and the boot up menu has memtest86. Also if you really want to see if this is a hardware or software issue, you can try install Linux Mint and see if you have issues shutting down the PC. If you're going to wipe the drive and reinstall Windows, you can do a quick install of Linux Mint to test for stability. Cause if this issue happens to Linux Mint, then you have a hardware issue most likely.
