Windows 7: Random BSOD refers to ntoskrnl.exe

Got the Ralink RT2860 driver installed. I did run a Windows Memory Diagnostic Test this morning since I had to use the installation disc to get the pc to boot up and it did report a hardware problem.
I will keep you updated on how it goes for the next day or so.
Again Thanks for your help.

You are welcome, Jim
Best of luck.

Better you run RAM - Test with Memtest86+. This one is more dependable. If it also finds a memory corruption, better you change the RAM.

Hi Arc,

I'm still running MemTest86+ with no Errors yet, but am wondering if the same Memory stick should show different numbers in each slot?
I have attached pics of the screen for each slot being tested using the same stick.

Have you added any hardware or made any changes? If overclocking restore normal settings.

Hi RichC,

Nothing added and the only change I've made is I did a clean install from an ISO shortly after the pc started crashing hoping it would cure the BSOD's and to get rid of all the bloatware. So everything is factory original except the OS.
I'm still running MemTest , I ran 10 passes in each slot with the 2GB memory stick with no errors,
the 6GB stick error-ed in slot 1 immediately on 3 tries and is running in slot 2 now , on the 4th pass no errors yet. MemTest is showing the same numbers in slot 2 for the 6GB stick that it showed for the 2GB stick.

Check your temps.
Are you overclocking?

No overclocking everything is original factory settings.

SpeedFan showing :
HD0 34 C
Temp1 34C
Core 35C

and after playing a couple of videos HD0 & Temp1 remained unchanged where as Core rose to 48C and showing 3 Fans at 0 RPM at all times even though I can here the fan running and at that point the pc froze.

Could not get the PC to run at all for a few days. It would boot into Windows and then freeze instantly. I ended up resetting the CMOS to get it to boot up and run , it now seems to run fine when being used but a few minutes at idle and it freezes to the point of having to do a hard shutdown & restart.
I have been running SpeedFan and have not seen the temps rise above 37C. I'm guessing SpeedFan can't read the Fan speeds because it always shows all three fans at 0 RPM.
I am at a total loss with what the problem(s) are with this computer.

I thought we had it all straightened out no serious problems for about a week after removing the 2Gb memory stick. Then last night the crashes began again. Here is the Dump Files.
