Random BSOD have no idea what is causing it

I am what I would consider a intermediate computer user I have been trying to figure out what has been causing my computer to BSOD for the past 4 -6 months I fixed it at some point I'm not sure how but I installed a windows 8 preview to check it out and when I reinstalled windows 7 again it started to BSOD once again any help would be great

Hello,

I suspect hardware may be the cause of these BSODs. Given the system's inability to write a crash dump and corrupted registry, I'd suspect RAM.

Code:

Try running Memtest86 again, this time from a cold boot. Leave the computer off for some time (overnight perhaps) and then immediately boot to Memtest in the morning. You might also check for a BIOS update.

Code:
BIOS Version/Date    American Megatrends Inc. 0303, 9/30/2010
