Better you perform Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.

Follow the tutorial. Everything you need is described there, and it works good for non-oem systems, too.

I'm not quite ready to format the system and start over. I still haven't completed the ram test. Perhaps after that...

Another BSOD, flies attached

Yes, you need to do the RAM tests.

Let us know the result after performing memtest.

Ran my first memtest. It ran for 61 hours and completed 36 passes. It was error free until pass 16! Ultimately, there were 3414 errors when I finally stopped it. I assume I need to start testing individual sticks/slots now?

Right, do it, as per the instructions koolkat77 will supply now. Following that process, you will be able to discriminate between any faulty module or faulty slot.

Take memtest. Run for 8 passes and test each stick in a know good slot for an additional 6 passes.
Quote:
The goal is to test all the RAM sticks and all the motherboard slots.

Check your motherboard manual to ensure the RAM sticks are in the recommended motherboard slots. Some motherboards have very specific slots required for the number of RAM sticks installed.

If you get errors, stop the test and continue with the next step.

1. Remove all but one stick of RAM from your computer (this will be RAM stick #1), and run Memtest86 again, for 7 passes.
*Be sure to note the RAM stick, use a piece of tape with a number, and note the motherboard slot.
If this stick passes the test then go to step #3.

2. If RAM stick #1 has errors, repeat the test with RAM stick #2 in the same motherboard slot.
*If RAM stick #2 passes, this indicates that RAM stick #1 may be bad. If you want to be absolutely sure, re-test RAM stick #1 in another known good slot.
*If RAM stick #2 has errors, this indicates another possible bad RAM stick, a possible motherboard slot failure or inadequate settings.
3. Test the next stick of RAM (stick #2) in the next motherboard slot.
*If this RAM stick has errors repeat step #2 using a known good stick if possible, or another stick.
*If this RAM stick has no errors and both sticks failed in slot#1, test RAM stick #1 in this slot.
4. If you find a stick that passes the test, test it in all the other motherboard slots.

If Part 2 testing shows errors, and all tests in Part 3 show errors, you will need to test the RAM sticks in another computer and/or test other RAM in your computer to identify the problem.

In this way, you can identify whether it is a bad stick of RAM, a bad motherboard, or incompatibility between the sticks.
Errors are sometimes found after 8 passes.
Do this test overnight, before going to bed.

Mixed results from the ram test. Ultimately I was unable to identify a problem stick of ram or motherboard slot. I ran numerous tests on every stick and combination of sticks I could think of and I ran every test for at least 20 passes (some as many as 100). The only failure I encountered was in my middle two motherboard slots when using a 2GB and 1GB stick together, but that was after 24 passes. After more than a week of not using my desktop computer I have decided enough is enough. I put all of my 2GB ram sticks back in (8GB total) in a different order than they were originally. I left out the 1GB stick (it seems to be from a different manufacturer). Lets see how this goes...

Well, after 3 weeks with no BSODs or random restarts, I'd say we've narrowed the problem down to either a currently unused ram slot or incompatiblity with the 1GB stick of ram I removed. I think I'm going to purchase an additional 8GB and see if it runs smoothly with all motherboard slots full.
