Random BSODs, various errors all involving NTOSKRNL.EXE

Hi,

I'm very quickly losing patience with a system given to a friend:

Philips Freevents MT1900
ECS 945G-M3 (Branded as a 945P-M3)
Intel Core2Duo 6300 (1.87Ghz)
2Gb DDR2 Ram
250Gb SATA hard drive
Windows Vista Home Premium x64 (OEM, Genuine & fresh install)
nVidia 7300 GS

I've tried:
Fresh reinstall
3 different sets of ram
New hard drive
Resetting BIOS to default via BIOS battery
Updating drivers via slimdrivers & Intel/nVidia auto-detect webtools/.exes

Windows Updates always fail on fresh installs which tells me I haven't fixed the problem. Quite frankly I'm losing my temper. Can any of you save my sanity? I've been tempted to flash the BIOS for a 945G-M3 however I risk bricking the motherboard!

Welcome
More BSODS than I can count. They show different causes. Usually an indication of a hardware problem. Test your hardware and report back.
Initial Hardware Diagnostics
On a more personal note, start with memory. There are indications that is the problem.
