Use this tutorial and look in Event Viewer and see what the error codes and messages are there, it may give a clue to the problem.

Were all the errors the same error? If so, what were the error number and the BCcode? You've run the ram, and tested the drives, but can't test the CPU until you get a better cooler. We can test your GPU card with Furmark. But monitor the temps and shut it down before it gets to the max for your card. It puts a great deal of stress on the GPU. also, make sure you have the updated drivers for your GPU. Am I correct in that you can download ZIP files, just not the one from that site? What anti virus program do you have?

the Level of Error was Information so i didn't see a BCcode, I em using Kaspersky Internet Security 2012 So it has its Firewall included in it and i also have Anti Malware bytes Pro, i can download zip files it was just that 1 site that wouldn't let me but I tried again last night (after i did the Ram switch to dual channel) and now it worked and finished so really the only problem I have is the is when i hit restart or shut down in the OS it self it logs out then at the windows shutting down screen it goes black and nothing happens ( i even left it for 10 mins and nothing happens)

What BIOS version do you have? 1303 is the latest. Your board is not supposed to be able to run that chip if the bios is 0603 or earlier. The latest is 1303.

As of now, have you received any BSOD's at all?

At least to test, uninstall Kaspersky and install MSE (Microsoft Security Essentials) instead.
Microsoft Security Essentials - Free Antivirus for Windows

Afterwards, you should run a full system scan with both Malwarebytes and MSE.

i Have not Had Any BSOD Yet (knock on wood ) and do you think that MSE would find Virus's Better then Kaspersky like is it any better? (just wondering not trying to be rude or anything like that)

I'm guessing that JaidynM is wanting to try and eliminate possible conflicts with other software which may be causing your problem. It's good advice, since many Antivirus programs have trouble with some software configurations. That's not to say that Kaspersky is bad (it isn't) or that MSE is that much better (it's probably not), but MSE gets along better with Windows 7 than pretty much every other Antivirus program out there. It's not perfect, but for troubleshooting your BSODs it's a safe bet to "not" be the cause of them.

The lock screen sees random freezes and a hard reset is required.
Hello, at random times the lock-screen freezes and a hard reset is needed. Keyboard light still toggle yet the SysReq + REISUB key combination does not do anything. Where is some syslog for checking why the kernel dumped and find potential solutions? This is windows 8.1, is this a known bug?

ndis.sys BSOD (timing seems random)
I get the BSOD every couple of weeks. Most of the research I've done indicated that it was probably an out of date driver, but I've updated everything I could (at least everything that I'm aware of). I can't pinpoint any specific activity that causes it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
