Windows 7: Random BSOD - Error 0x0000003b

Ok, the problem continues here too, no significant change whatsoever. If I get bsod its "IRQL not less or equal" or "PNF list corrupt" and related to ntoskrnl.exe. The one thing to note is that if the machine just hangs (no bsod) it usually goes in the order that the keyboard isnīt anymore responding but the mouse is still for a while. Then it soon hangs completely.

I think I go with reinstalling Windows next and if it still occurs, I will buy new motherboard, because itīs starting to be old anyway.

Well, My problem is now officially fixed. it turned out to be my power supply failing. Computer started really acting up, turning on but my video card would spin at full power, and then it would reboot itself and be fine. it was strange, so I pisked up a new power supply, and it booted up no problem. now I will give it a couple weeks, if there are no BSOD's, then I will call this solved. ordered new ram for nothing, but, at least i will have faster ram haha!

I know it may seem premature to mark this as solved as it only has been a day or so. But I am confident that was the problem all along. It makes sense of me thinking it was the ram, with the power supply failing, it would send dirty current to my dimm slots, causing it to seem like the ram was failing, and I have not had one single problem with booting, leaving it in sleep mode, even now when I start my computer, my internet has a connection instantly.
I should have put it all together and thought "power supply" but the power supply was a very good brand (OCZ) but from my knowledge, they had a bad year or 2 around the time I got mine.

Anyways, I really want to thank everyone that has helped me through this, giving me things to try and do. Everything that has been done has considerably sped up my computer, which I more than appreciate, and I have more knowledge to add to my noodle of computer stuff.

Thanks again. Take care.

Ok, thanks for you too richphotos and great that you got it right in the end. Thanks for you koolkat77 as well.

I did today a clean install of Win 7 and working fine so far. So on my behalf this is pretty much closed too. Because now I know that if it works from now on it was some sort of windows corruption caused by the change of graphics card. If the freeze and BSOD still occur, it is definitely hardware. I will know this after couple of days, so I give a final judgement then.

I just cant win, motherboard took a crap on me this morning. But, it was all for the best in the end, Got myself a AMD FX 4100 3.6ghz quad core, 8gb of crucial ballistix ddr3 ram paired with a gigabyte motherboard. Working nice and smooth now.
