I plugged this pc and formatted disk in uefi.
13900K stock
2x16 GB DDR5 GSKILL 6800
Rtx 4090 Gigabyte Gaming
Aorus Elite Z790 AX
SSD KINGSTON 2TB
Seasonic 1300W PX ATX 3.0 PCIE 5.
Today i rebooted pc by shutdown button in start menu and this popped:
explorer.exe - application error
The instruction at 0x00007FFD4938C34B referenced memory at
0x0000000000000008. The memory could not be read.
Is my pc stable? I dont oc pc,all stock.No games crashing. No bsods. No errors in karhu ram test.

Someone said this to me in microsoft forum:"There is a high possibility that this involves your current memory. It can also be older system drivers, faulty CPUs, defective memory, corrupted files, or hardware conflicts. Following my suggestion above can help and I also suggest getting your PC hardware checked by a technician if this error happens again."

Can i have faulty cpu?
 
But i recheck again and close all apps before reboot and no pop up.

    Sounds like a background program is refusing to close properly. Before restarting or shutting down the PC close all of your background programs. Then shutdown and see if the error occurs. This is not a GPU issue.

    Wouldn't worry about a one off error, but if it continues to happen I would suggest running your ram at 5600 instead of 6800.

    No, this sounds like a Windows O/S issue or a program running in your PC is not responding quickly enough to your restart or shutdown command.

    Random errors popping out of nowhere for no particular reason is a sign of unstable RAM.

    I wouldn't think so. A hang during a new OS install is quite common. If it has not happened again... I am, not sure why that needs repeating.

    He's not having random errors. He had it lock up during the initial install of the OS. I think pretty much everyone has had that happen at least once.
    If he has not had another issue, then he doesn't have an issue IMO.
     
    Edit. The OP did a big old NO NO and edited the first post. Please don't do that. Make another post with your current error conditions.
