Windows 7: Random BSOD - might be video related? (files attached)

Random BSOD - might be video related? (files attached)

I've been getting random BSOD screens, maybe once per week. I don't do a whole lot on this machine at the moment but browse the web, internet radio (embedded stream), e-mail, facebook and watch web videos and stuff like that.

Computer is an Asus X53E-RS51 (Intel Core i5-2450M 2.50GHz)

Added Corsair 8GB (2x 4GB) 1333mhz PC3-10666 204-pin DDR3 RAM
Added a 64gb Crucial SSD drive (replaced the OEM SATA drive)

First time I installed Windows 7 I downloaded all the drivers from the Asus site but did a clean install instead of the OEM partition with all of the Asus software. Upon this last re-install, I didn't install any drivers other than the webcam, LAN card and multi-card reader just to see if that helped stability. I've had two BSODs in the last week though so...

That's about it. I've attached the SF Diagnostic Tool files. Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

Welcome

One of your dump shows memory corruption. The other is just blaming a windows file.

We'll start off with testing your memory to make sure its good.
Run for 8 passes, overnight.

Thanks a lot! I will try that now, let it run overnight and see what happens. Maybe there's a bad stick of RAM in there...

Ran it as it was with both Crucial sticks of RAM in and got errors on the memory test after about 2 hours. Took one sick out, left the other in and ran it overnight for 8 tests, no errors. I'm gonna try just running the other stick later today to see if ti's a bad stick or something else.

Looks like a memory module is at fault, one of the Crucial DIMMS is producing errors. Guess I'll see if I can return it now. Thanks for the help, hopefully that solves my issue. Guess I'll run 4gb of RAM for the time being.

I had another crash, this time no BSOD, just complete shutdown...just want to make sure it's the same issue and not something else going on. If someone could take a look at the attached SF Diagnostic files while I wait for my new RAM sticks that would be awesome.
