Windows 7: BSOD Playing League of Legends, Using Skype, MS Security Essentials

Hi,

So I didn't have any issues for 5 days so I hoped the problem was gone. Unfortunately, it happened again today WITHOUT the game running. Once the usual blue screen happened ("DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE"), the computer blue-screened again, this time with a different error that I hadn't seen before. It said something like "IRQL_NOT_LESS_EQUAL," but I'm not sure if that's exactly right-- the screen disappeared after a couple seconds.

I have a sneaking suspicion now that the problem is my RAM, so I'm going to run a memtest as soon as I can get my hands on a blank CD (I'm a college student). I figured I should upload this latest problem in case it sheds any light on the issue.

Thanks for your continued support.

If you have dual channel, the results may be incorrect, if shows pass.

I think thats wise.
The most current update does not even contain the BSOD information (dmp report)

Maybe it didn't include the information because my computer automatically did a system restore?

Also, I ran an 8-pass standard memtest and no errors were picked up. I'm going to run the more extensive, long test now.

So even the extensive, ~24 hour RAM test with 8 passes didn't catch any problems. Do you have a recommendation for the next step?

Yes, part two of the test. You must test each stick for about 6 passes in a good slot.

So you're saying that it's possible there are problems with individual sticks that weren't able to be detected when they are used together?

Yes,
It is also possible that the slots in the MB may be bad. As far as BSOD analysis however, if you get a fail for any reason, at that point, it is assumed that memory caused the BSOD. This is what you can do. Take a stick that you know works and test it in each slot. If all the slots are good then we know the problem is with the ram.
If thats the case it is with an individual stick, I doubt that all sticks go bad at the same time.

Is there an easy way to tell if overheating is the issue? Have we eliminated overheating as a possibility? Thanks.

Download speed fan, and tell me your temps. If too high that may be the cause. If not too high continue to use speed fan and at the next BSOD, we read the temp

Okay, just from having an internet browser (Chrome) open and listening to music, I'm getting the following temperatures. That's not possible, right? The numbers look way too high. My computer doesn't even feel hot to the touch at this point (and there are definitely times when it does). Am I using it correctly?
