BSOD playing SWTOR, different messages

I have a new computer and have had the BSOD message multiple times in the last day or so while I have been playing SWTOR. I had the message occasionally previously but it occurs much more frequently while playing SWTOR. I have windows 64 bit home version that was OED when I got the computer about 2 weeks ago.

Computer Specs:
Intel Core i7-2600K CPU @ 3.4 GHz, 3.70 GHz
8.00 GB installed RAM (2 4 GB strips)
64 bit windows home
AMD Radeon HD 6800 Series graphics card

Your uptime was 5+ days when the system crashed most recently. By itself that can be a cause of BSOD's.

In your case it was a memory issue



These crashes were caused by memory corruption (probably a driver). Please run these two tests to verify your memory and find which driver is causing the problem.

If you are overclocking anything reset to default before running these tests.
In other words STOP!!!



1-Memtest.
Quote:
*Download a copy of Memtest86 and burn the ISO to a CD using Iso Recorder or another ISO burning program. Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool

*Boot from the CD, and leave it running for at least 5 or 6 passes.

Just remember, any time Memtest reports errors, it can be either bad RAM or a bad motherboard slot.

Test the sticks individually, and if you find a good one, test it in all slots.

Any errors are indicative of a memory problem.

If a known good stick fails in a motherboard slot it is probably the slot.

RAM - Test with Memtest86+



2-Driver verifier

Quote:
I'd suggest that you first backup your data and then make sure you've got access to another computer so you can contact us if problems arise. Then make a System Restore point (so you can restore the system using the Vista/Win7 Startup Repair feature).

In Windows 7 you can make a Startup Repair disk by going to Start....All Programs...Maintenance...Create a System Repair Disc - with Windows Vista you'll have to use your installation disk or the "Repair your computer" option at the top of the Safe Mode menu .

Then, here's the procedure:
- Go to Start and type in "verifier" (without the quotes) and press Enter
- Select "Create custom settings (for code developers)" and click "Next"
- Select "Select individual settings from a full list" and click "Next"
- Select everything EXCEPT FOR "Low Resource Simulation" and click "Next"
- Select "Select driver names from a list" and click "Next"
Then select all drivers NOT provided by Microsoft and click "Next"
- Select "Finish" on the next page.

Reboot the system and wait for it to crash to the Blue Screen. Continue to use your system normally, and if you know what causes the crash, do that repeatedly. The objective here is to get the system to crash because Driver Verifier is stressing the drivers out. If it doesn't crash for you, then let it run for at least 36 hours of continuous operation (an estimate on my part).

If you can't get into Windows because it crashes too soon, try it in Safe Mode.
If you can't get into Safe Mode, try using System Restore from your installation DVD to set the system back to the previous restore point that you created.

This game currently has some optimization issues intended for low end video cards that are a problem (potentially hardware damaging) for high end video cards. The problem is causing BSODs/BLSODs for users of high end or newer video cards -- the events of which damage/destroy DX9 resources and driver resources which very easily can result with the memory corruption observed.
