Windows 7: New components, random BSOD and reboots

Hey Honorgamer.

I uninstalled Daemon tools as you instructed. I've also ran memtest86+ before I made this topic for few hours without it giving any errors.

I will try again with a single RAM installed as I did it before with both equipped (even with my old RAM).

Make sure you try it with each stick of RAM.

Just a little update.

Powered on my computer in the morning and it gave bluescreen during boot, before I got to windows screens.

Tried to reboot but it wouldn't anymore, just black screen and PC on, fans running etc.

I took out my 2nd memory stick and it booted fine after, so guess it is indeed memory related problem I've been having.

I will run memtest on both sticks and report back.

I ran memtest86+ for both my ram sticks about 4 hours each, 4 passes and didn't encounter any errors according to memtest.

I'm starting to think that my memoryslots on motherboard have gone bad, or atleast the second one in first row.

Guess I will try again with both sticks installed and see if bluescreens keep happening, then try with just a single stick.

My computer seems to be working somewhat stable with only one RAM when its installed in the first slot.

I did however manage to use my computer for few hours when I once again put the second RAM, but my computer got BSOD once again while having a game idle for some time.

Then I pulled out the RAM in the first slot (leaving the other in second) and when restarting I ended up in boot loop, automatic restarts before desktop would appear.

I swapped that RAM from the second slot to the first one and now it seems to be working again.

Reckon I should start looking for a new motherboard, or is there anything else that might cause this?

I added yet another minidump file and a screenshot of latest BSOD.

So what do you think? Anything new you discovered from either minidump or screenshot?

Well as your troubleshooting proved, 1 slot is bad. You only have 2 slots for RAM?

Run these:
SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

After:
Disk Check

As it is showing a driver issue still. But you may of solved part of the problem!

Nah...I have four Dimm slots on my mobo and I guess I had a major brainfart not realizing to put both RAMs in the other color coded pair

I am running sfc /scannow currently and will do chkdisk for all my drives after, and see if my computer stays stable.

Just relieved to know what was causing those problems, but lets knock on wood for now, can't be sure just yet

Well it seemed to run well, until again this morning when I powered up my computer I began having errors with both RAMs installed. First freeze during boot and then bluescreen after reaching desktop.

Sfc /scannow didn't find any problems but still have to run chkdisk.

Minidump and new screenshot provided, the bsod seems to be a bit different every time but I wouldn't know.

Chkdisk came clean with all my drives.

What's odd is that again I have both of my ram installed in blue slots (one of them was the one that wouldn't work even with a single ram) and my computer seems to be running fine for now, but I know I can expect a BSOD or freeze to happen soon.
