Memory Management BSODs--can't pinpoint the problem program

Pretty frequent memory management BSODs are plaguing me..doesn't seem connected to any particular program but does happen a lot when firefox is open (could be coincidence?) I would really appreciate any help. Thanks!

Hello jdhunter418 and welcome to Sevenforums.

BSOD Analyse

Memtest86+

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.
