I ran it with /F and it fixed the problem.but still got BSOD after this (5th crash)

Thoughts of possible suspects:
-sound card driver issues
-when i first installed windows Pagefile.sys and hibernate.sys were huge so i disabled hibernate and somehow disabled Pagefile.sys but I forget how.
these files were like 13gb large! i had to do something about it on my 64gb ssd that is already only 59gb. and with 16gb of ram i didnt think it would ever be a problem.
-I didnt manually format P and S partitions when i first installed. they were brand new drives. i had to set them up in Disk Manager by right clicking in it and choosing "New Simple Volume..."
-monitor issues? maybe the cableing on the second monitor is messing with something (DVI to HDMI converter on vid card with a HDMI to DVI cable to monitor). i just didnt have another DVI lying around). 2 different resolutions, sizes and aspect ratios?

Just remember when running Ccleaner to deselect the Index.dat and history if working coporate.. You might need those in the future.

I didnt run cCleaner after the last crash. i might have ran iobits that found 2 infections. how else can i insure that im getting proper dumps. could i have disabled that option somewhere when disabling my PageFile.sys?

Have you ran a CHKDSK using /R?

I have run it with /R but i did again just in case and found no errors no bad sectors.

I enabled my PageFile.sys again to see if that helps. its huge though at over 13gb now. sigh. takes up a lot of my small SSD.

Have you tried cleaning your gold edges of the RAM with a rubber? It always helps defying the problem at hand. Just remember to touch some metal parts of your caseing before touching the RAM(To avoid static).. After a good clean give it a try..

they are brand new. clean out of the box. also it gives no errors when i ran a 8 hour stress test. you really think this could be the problem?

I also want to add that my system hickups a bit currently. as in when i type something into say a web browser it some times takes a sec to appear. like i type something, the cursor pauses, i see nothing of what i just typed then it quickly jumps and all that i typed shows up. you know what i mean? this shouldnt happen with my set up. at all. its doing something behind the scenes.

I might just try a reformat. I've ran tests on my ram, cpu, hdd's with no errors. could be a video card or audio card problem though. could be anything. dam bluescreens being so mysterious.

did that last test dump right? I'm not sure what to look for. but i like to learn

Download & run FURMARK and let it run for a while(To stress test your GPU)... Keep a close look at the TEMP of your GPU..Also download the latest ATI drivers but before install,uninstall the old drivers & restart... There is a good tool to use with your display its called ATIExperttool..You can set a couple of settings by using this like fan speed ect.

ok i did some stress tests:

First i did a Burn-In test for 30 minutes @ full screen Resolution: 1680x1050 (FS) - AA:2 samples:
max temp 81, avg fps 25, max fan speed 47%

then some menchmarks at 1 min each one right after the other with little time in between to cool off:

-BM 1 SCORE:1488 points (24 FPS, 60000 ms) FPS: min:22, max:31, avg:24 - OPTIONS: DynBkg
-BM 2 SCORE:943 points (15 FPS, 60000 ms) FPS: min:13, max:19, avg:15 - OPTIONS: DynCam
-BM 3 SCORE:1318 points (21 FPS, 60000 ms) FPS: min:22, max:23, avg:21 - OPTIONS: none (burn in)
-BM 4 SCORE:646 points (10 FPS, 60000 ms) FPS: min:11, max:12, avg:10 - OPTIONS: XB
-BM 5 SCORE:2179 points (36 FPS, 60000 ms) FPS: min:34, max:40, avg:36 - OPTIONS: FX

no crashes. temps look good.

*also worth reiterating i am running 2 screens. one 16:10 @ 1680X1050 via DVI and one 4:3 @ 1280X1024 via DVI/HDMI converter to HDMI/DVI cable. stress tests on my 16:10 widescreen samsung.
