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

Windows 7 64-bit BSOD after upgrading RAM

I upgraded my RAM from 2 sticks of 2GB DDR3 1333 MHz to 4 sticks of 2GB 1333 MHz.
I purchased the exact same model number of the first 2 sticks I was using, went to BIOS and used the exact same settings for the 2 new sticks of RAM. The system runs but I get BSOD occassionally since then. I installed all the latest motherboard drivers, chipset, graphics card, and even updated my BIOS to the latest one but I'm still getting BSOD. Interestingly, I noticed that I get BSOD when opening some JPEG files (most still opens with no problem via Windows Photo Viewer), and I also get BSOD when simply exploring files in my computer (just Windows Explorer). So what I did was I changed my default photo viewer to the one that comes with Picasa. I already did the RAM isolation test, testing each ram in each of the 4 memory slots of my motherboard, and testing all possible combinations of 1, 2, 3 and 4 sticks and everything went well, the system boots up (but I didn't check if I will get BSOD when testing those combinations, I just merely checked if the system will boot up or not). I ran Memtest several times and found no errors. I ran the built-in Memory test of the motherboard BIOS and found no erros. I ran Windows Memory Diagnostics several times and found no errors.

Though I don't have a dedicated cooler for the memory sticks, I have a lot, and I mean a LOT of fans in my casing... I don't have any application that monitors the temperature of the memory sticks but I have 3 applications that monitor the temperature of my motherboard and processor, all applications show the same results (and I believe it's accurate) and the average temperature of the motherboard and processor is around 40 C to 45 C idle and could rise up to 65 C at full load (when I'm running games).

Reinstalling windows is my last resort... it takes time to reinstall windows and other programs in the same partition and go through all the settings, personalization, etc... but i would do that if the BSODs won't stop.

I'm stucked here... Any help will be much appreciated.

I attached the minidump files of the recent BSODs.

Hello Angelo, welcome to Seven Forums. Please completely follow the http://www.sevenforums.com/crashes-d...tructions.html We need all of the information in this tutorial to properly diagnose your issues.

Just by looking at your .dmp files, it appears as though your RAM settings are incorrect. Please download CPUz and upload all of the tabs.
