Windows 7: BSOD - Most likely RAM issue

It could all be related to the CMOS battery. Replace the battery and see if that resolves the freezing. If not, we can test for other possible problems.

After my last post, I got a BSOD that suggested my video drivers were having issues, so I uninstalled and reinstalled them.
Also I ran the files in the Posting Instructions to cover the other angles of figuring out what else could be wrong.
Planning to get a new CMOS battery today or tomorrow, so I'll post back if it fixes the issue.

I found a Maxell 3v 2032 battery in my lightly used Pokéwalker from Pokémon Soulsilver.
After putting it into the system, I still got a hang and time/date reset.
I'm very sure that the battery I just put in has more left to it than the battery that's been in my MB for quite some time.

What other options are there to figuring out what's causing this problem?
And thanks to anyone posting and sticking with me through this.
I really appreciate it.

When you replaced the CMOS battery, did you have the computer unplugged?

No, but I used the power button on my power supply to make sure the MB had no charge. I flipped it off until there were no lights on on the MB.
Sadly, I can't even get my computer to the log in screen. It keeps hanging on the MB splash or Starting Windows screen.

Clear your CMOS and BIOS hardware/software connections.
.
  1. Go into your BIOS and load default settings to clear the CMOS memory.
  2. Save Settings and exit the BIOS.
  3. Shut down and turn off the computer.
  4. Unplug the computer from the wall or surge protector (then remove the battery if it is a laptop).
  5. Hold down the power button for 30 seconds. This closes the circuit and ensures all power from components is drained to clear the software connections between the BIOS and hardware and clear any corruption in the temporary memory.
  6. (If it is a laptop, plug the battery back into the laptop and then) Plug the computer back into the wall.
  7. Turn it on to reinitialize the software connections between the BIOS and hardware, and post back your results.

For some reason, reseating the CPU heatsink(taking it off and putting it back on) has let me pass everything and log in.

I did the option "Load setup defaults".
I'm now logged into Windows.

Been on since my last post with no issues.
My screen went crazy and my screen was flashing between these 2 pictures.

Looks like bad graphics driver or bad graphics card.
1. Which Nvidia driver are you using?

2. Did you un-install the old driver first?
If not follow this procedure.
Go to add and remove programs and use the Nvidia Install Manager to do a complete uninstall of all its resources.
Do not reboot.
Download Guru3D - Driver Sweeper (Setup) download from Guru3D.com and install it.
Reboot in Safe Mode and run Driver Sweeper. Select "Nvidia Display" box and click "analyze". Then "clean". Reboot normally and try to install the same version of the Nvidia drivers you just installed.

3. D/L and run Western Digital Lifeguard – Quick Test and Extended Test.

4. What PSU do you have?

5. Your RAM should be installed in Slots A1 and B1, the blue slots, is this how you have them?

6. After the new graphics card driver is installed, Run the SFC /scannow command three separate times with re-boots after each run.

7. Post a snip of the CPUZ tabs: CPU, Mainboard, Memory, and SPD tabs.
Go to your BIOS and tell us what the CPU, RAM and the CPU integrated memory controller voltages are.
