Hello,

MSINFO Analysis:

Code:
Unknown Device	USB\VID_0000&PID_0000\5&306FACF1&0&1	43
What hardware do you have plugged into your USB ports?


Code:
Start Menu\Programs\Driver Detective
Programs that automatically install drivers for you sometimes install the incorrect drivers. So please uninstall.

Dump Analysis:

Code:
MEMORY_MANAGEMENT (1a)
As you said you recently bought and installed new RAM sticks. It is possible that these COULD be faulty sticks. So run a RAM - Test with Memtest86+ to test them to be safe.

Code:
Event[1861]:
  Log Name: System
  Source: Disk
  Date: 2012-08-19T10:03:01.175
  Event ID: 11
  Task: N/A
  Level: Error
  Opcode: N/A
  Keyword: Classic
  User: N/A
  User Name: N/A
  Computer: Louise-PC
  Description: 
The driver detected a controller error on \Device\Harddisk1\DR2.
I have found several one of these errors in the Even Log file. I believe this is caused by hardware devices. Even USB. So please be sure the answer the above question about your USB devices.

Finish this and then post back results.

The hardware in my USB port is my card reader with a microSD card inside....
I also uninstalled the driver detective
..I didnt finish the Memtest because im late in school(It was in Test#8 i think when i stop it),But i will continue it when i get home, i saw something weird though ,while in the Memtest screen i saw in the Settings-
"Settings : RAM:400MHZ(ddr800)/ CAS: 6-6-6-18 / DDR2(64 bits)"
...........whats weird to me is it reads "400mhz" ,while my RAM is actually 800mhz each ,(my old RAM is 400mhz though),,,so waht do you think?..
Oh,and do you think my Anti-virus can also be one of the cause of my BSOD?...im using AVAST
