Windows 7: BSOD on Startup and seemingly random occassions

BSOD on Startup and seemingly random occassions

so I recently finished my PC build and have multiple problems. After installing windows 7 it was fine apart from when I turned it on it would restart 2 seconds into boot, but after that it worked fine. Then the next day it BSOD on start up and the mobo would bleep 3 times, 64K Ram problem apparently. I decided to take the graphics card out as nothing was appearing on the screen. This seemed to fix the problem. I ran prime 95 several times and everything was fine. But now it's BSOD randomly. A Friend has tested the GPU on his PC and says it works fine.

Intel i5 2500k sandybridge
Asus P8Z68-V
Corsair Dominator 8Gb (2x4) 1866MHz Dual Channel
Nvidia GT 240
Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB
Coolermaster GX750 Bronze

Windows 7 Professional 64bit

Thanks in advance for any help

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.
*If the files are too large please upload them to a file sharing service like "Rapidshare" and put a link to them in your reply.


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.

Easy, these were Related to PixArt Imaging Incorporation Registry Monitor. Note: Located in \%WINDIR%\PixArt\PAP7501\


I would remove it.

I started having BSOD issues with this PC some months back, when I was using an ATI card that was a bit behind the times. I thought it was a faulty graphics card causing it, so I swapped it out with a spare I had and that seemed to fix the issue - no more BSOD boot loops. I recently (just before...
