BSOD! crashes 9/10 times when launching game
My com crashes 9 out of 10 times I launch the game - dota 2. It also crashes randomly when I am surfing the net although it is not as frequent.
I've run memtest86 for 7 passes and it detected no errors so I believe the problem does not lie with my rams. Would appreciate if any of the professionals here could point me to the cause of these crashes. I've attached some of the more recent minidump files.
Thanks in advance!

Hello Candicey and welcome to Sevenforums.
You mentioned that you've used Memtest86+, but have you done it in this procedure?
Looking at your bugcheck it's likely that a memory corruption event was triggered. Though a driver could be causing the memory to be borked, but we're usually suggesting a memory test before moving forward. Do a scan with Memtest86+. Memtest is a scanner that'll check your sticks for errors.
Note that the below instructions may break your WARRANTY rules. If you're unsure check manuals, separated warranty papers, stickers on computer for secure permission.
To ensure that we'll know if it's the slots on the motherboard that's broken, or the sticks itself - we have a little procedure we'll recommend. Remove 1 stick, scan the other with Memtest in the current slot. After 7 passes, move the stick to another slot and scan, and so on and so forth until you've scanned all the sticks, and all the slots, one by one.

There's a few things to talk about regarding this sort of bugcheck.
