Benchmark error: conhost.exe not found (Asus Strix Z270G Gaming + i7-6700K)

Recommended Posts

Hello fellow PC enthusiasts!

I tried aida64 today for the first time and decided to do a PC summary. When it was time for the "Benchmark" part, i got one popup that said "conhost.exe" could not be found. It came up during all the test on the benchmark part. The test continued after clicking OK in the dialog box.

I have been having problems with my RAM modules lately. I bought my kit of 8GBx2 Corsair Vengeance LPX 2133MHz in august 2016 and it worked great until about two months ago when i started getting blue screens and freezes. I did a memtest and one of the modules had errors so i created a RMA and Corsair accepted it. When i recieved the new modules, i reset bios, put the new ones in slot A2 & B2 and proceeded to install Windows. About 15 minutes later i got new bsod. So now i can only use one of the modules since my PC wont even post with if one of the modules are in the PC. The one i use now also had errors in it but i can still use it, i usually get one BSOD when i start my PC and then it wont occur again until the PC has been off for atleast 3 hours...

I tried changing mobo and ive tried all kinds of things. Im currently keeping an angry eye at my PSU which im thinkig of replacing asap. Let me know what you think it could be!

 

As well as looking at my attached test, i would like to know what you think has caused these RAM errors. I will write my setup down below. Thanks guys, enjoy the weekend.

 

Mobo: ASUS B150 Pro Gaming / ASUS Z270G Gaming  (Had B150 Pro MOBO from august 2016 until yesterday which i replaced with Z270G Strix)

GPU: Gigabyte GTX 970 G1 4GB

If you've changed both the motherboard and the memory modules, and you still have issues, then it can either be the CPU or the PSU.  Hard to tell from here though :(  As for conhost.exe, it's strange, since AIDA64 never calls or links that particular executable file.
