Windows 7: Windows 7 64-bit BSOD after upgrading RAM

That your old RAM and new RAM probably do not like each other. This happens a lot. If you do not get the same RAM modules at the same time from the same manufacturer with the same timings/frequencies, your RAM may conflict. It is best to buy all RAM in one kit, or if in two kits, at the exact same time and with the exact same kits.

Just got another BSOD 2 days after I went back using all four 2GB sticks... and it seems the BSOD error message is different this time, the computer just restarted so quickly I was not able to get the exact message.

Attached the latest dump file.

About the RAM conflict idea, then if that's the case, i will just buy another 2 sticks of the same ram, then sell the old pair... at least DDR3 ram these days are a lot cheaper than when I bought the first pair ^_^T

The latest crash is a MEMORY_MANAGEMENT crash and points to the RAM. I would say you found the culprit: RAM conflict. Hopefully, since you are buying a new kit so close to the time when you bought the previous one, you will not have problems. Just make sure it is the exact same kit. Best of luck!
