BSOD after cold start.

Hello all, I made my own computer in the summer, everything went fine until i turned it off for a night and it took around 20 restarts until it would come back on, just from BSOD's right after the "Windows is loading" black screen with the emblem on it.

Here are my system specs DxDiag.txt | Game Front

The only thing i saw on the BSOD is Bad header and something about memory.

When it goes by fast it just looks like a paragraph.

If anyone could help me with this it'd be great.

Edit: If you need more info just ask

To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder.

The procedure:

* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.



To ensure minidumps are enabled:

Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb varies).
Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
OK your way out.
Reboot if changes have been made.
