Windows 7: Crashes - several of them.

Crashes - several of them.

Recently i have started to gain lots of BSODs. I ran memtest86 and found out that one of my rams was corrupted, replaced it with a new stick. New memory test, nothing. BSODs gone for 1 day and reinstalled windows. Today, i play some games and out of nowhere:
IRQL NOT LESS OR EQUAL - 3 times already. I donīt know can the drivers be a problem since all i have is ancient ATI catalyst 10.8? to avoid crashes from newer versions and of course sound + bios.

mobo: M4a79xtd evo/usb3
processor: AMD Phenom II x4 955 3.20 ghz
graphics card: hd 5750
total amount of ram atm: 3 gb(I should totally buy more asap)
