Windows 7: BSOD about 3-4 times a week. Not specific to any particular action

So I finally ran prime 95 (I was unable to download it for a while for some reason) for about 3 hours. None of the cores got above 68 C, which I hope isn't too hot, and there were no errors. I let memtest run for about 10 hours and that also turned up error free. I'm starting to get the feeling that my BSOD problem is fixed. Thank you so much for your help Dave.

Good news, and you're welcome.

68C is within limits, but with your cooler it should be no more than 60C.
Make sure the cooler is tight, but not too tight, as too loose or too tight can decrease performance.
You shouldn't be able to twist the cooler, with a light pressure turn, don't use full force.

Looks like you've been stable for a couple weeks, and now passed Prime and memtest86+, you can mark this thread 'Solved'.

Let us know if you have any more questions.

Thanks for the tip on the cooler. I tightened her down and now my computer only gets to 57 C during stress test. I would of never thought that would make 10 degrees difference. Thanks again, I'm finally gonna mark this solved now.

Just had another crash. I've uploaded the logs and have already ran memtest and prime95. My computer passed both. I'm starting to think that maybe I should just buy new RAM sticks that are actually on my motherboards approved list. Do you think that would be a waste of time and money?

Sorry to hear that.

Do you still have these settings:
Dram 1.550V
VCCSA 1.070V

Your last crash:
Code:
STOP 0x0000004E: PFN_LIST_CORRUPT
Usual causes:  Device driver, ?memory
Probably caused by : memory_corruption ( nt!MiBadShareCount+4c )
FAILURE_BUCKET_ID:  X64_0x4E_99_nt!MiBadShareCount+4c
The usual causes are a bad driver and, of coarse, bad RAM.

Run Driver Verifier as per this tutorial:
Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable
First make a Restore Point.
Driver Verifier will slow down your system, run for a minimum of 24 hours, it will need several hours to cause a crash. A couple crashes will be needed to evaluate the cause, upload the full BSoD report when you get a couple crashes.

It may be due to the RAM causing these problems, getting new RAM may be necessary. To be sure run Driver Verifier first.

So I've been running driver verifier for about three days now and haven't had a crash yet. I'm just gonna leave it on until something happens.

If there is no crash by now, the drivers are good, you can turn off Driver Verifier.
Were you using the computer normally?

Let us know if you get another crash.

I left the driver verifier on for a couple more days since I wasn't really using the computer all that much. I eventually got a crash, which I've uploaded. After I turned the verifier off though something strange happened. I restarted the computer and a black screen came up that said:

Checking file system on C:
The type of the file system is NTFS
One of your disks needs to be checked for consistency.

The computer then checked everything and no errors were found.

Windows had a problem which indicated the hard drive and ran diskcheck.

Just to be sure run WD Lifguard.
Run the WD Lifeguard test on your WD HDD(s). Quick Test first, if it passes then run the Extended Test.
Data Lifeguard Diagnostic for Windows

What Anti-virus are you using?
Run a full scan.

Are all Windows updates installed?

Your crash:
Code:
STOP 0x0000001A: MEMORY_MANAGEMENT
Usual causes:  Device driver, memory, kernel
A PTE or the working set list is corrupt.
DEFAULT_BUCKET_ID:  VERIFIER_ENABLED_VISTA_MINIDUMP
PROCESS_NAME:  chrome.exe
LAST_CONTROL_TRANSFER:  from fffff800032cf7e7 to fffff80003278c40
FAILURE_BUCKET_ID:  X64_0x1a_41284_VRF_nt!_??_::FNODOBFM::_string_+4ad3
This usually indicates hardware but can be caused by a driver.
Since it's blaming Chrome, you should un-install it for testing.
You can install it again later, when the cause is found.
