Windows 7: Complete lockups / Green screen?

Complete lockups / Green screen?

Howdy, first post here.

I have been experiencing random computer lockups more frequently with a fresh install of Win7 Pro 64 only a couple weeks old. This is actually my 4th or so install within the year while having the same problems. Whats puzzling me is sometimes I'll just lockup while either browsing the web with Chrome, or doing something as simple as opening a folder. And some of the times I'll get a black and green screen that is also locked up.

Here I locked up just clicking on the windows start menu:

I'm thinking its the memory, but not sure really. I finally figured the computer was running it at higher clock speeds and retimed them and that helped a little. But I'm still having these issues.

If anyone requires more information to help just let me know. Not entirely sure if this is a known issue or I would need to provide more to discover what's causing this to happen.
