Windows 7: random blue screens with new pc

random blue screens with new pc

hey, i built a new pc but i keep getting random blue screens from time to time, even firefox crashes a lot sometimes.. and other times its fine and i go to the same sites everytime, seems to be a ram memory problem but i tested both sticks (i have 2x2gb) by removing one to see which one has problems.. but they both seem to..


so this is what i have:

mainboard: gigabyte P55-US3L, socket 1156
cpu: i5 650 3.2ghz 1156
ram: 2x corsair 2gb ddr3 1333mhz (timings: 9-9-9-24) (VS2GB1333D3 G)
video card: asus nvidia gts 250 512mb ddr3

i also did tests with memtest86+ for 6 hours and no errors.. i can't figure out which hardware part could cause this problem.. if i knew i would replace it right away.. although it still seems to be a ram memory problem..

right now im using windows 7 but when i first used this pc i used XP pro and it was a lot worse than windows 7, it would freeze and get blue screens a lot more often..

i attached my dmp files.. if anybody knows whats the problem please tell me

thanks

i am not getting any clues from debugger at the moment and your drivers are certainly not old ...............

what antivirus and or third party firewall are you using ?

can you run the windows 7 upgrade advisor to check your hardware compatibility ?

In addition to Ickymay advise, also try to update your directx as well:

i'm not using any antivirus (i'm 100% sure i don't have viruses or stuff like that) and just the windows firewall - people said it's fine.. and since i can't use sygate personal firewall pro..

this is what i get from windows 7 upgrade advisor, not sure where to find that update.. but it's hard to believe it's because of that..

identify your exact model in device manager then look for drivers on the Realtek website

one thing i noticed.. i usually have problems when i first boot the PC everyday, applications crash and stuff like that.. but then i shut down the PC and boot again and everything is fine.. any ideas? could it just be my mainboard that is broken?

test your Ram at cold boot please:
Download a copy of Memtest86 and burn the ISO to a CD using Iso Recorder or another ISO burning program. Boot from the CD, and leave it running for at least 5 or 6 passes.
