Windows 7: Random BSODs, even when idling

Random BSODs, even when idling

So for the past few months I was getting random BSODs mostly while being idle. I only had the time to reformat a few days ago and I still get those BSODs. Yesterday I got 2 BSODs while playing League of Legends, but like i said most of the time i got the BSODs while being idle.

I don't know what is causing them, help would be appreciated. I attached the dump files and everything else.

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.

Tip   Tip
Do this test overnight, before going to bed.

Sorry for the late reply, I just want to say that i did run memtest and stuff. Nothing bad. I actually found the source of the problem which was gpu drivers problem, probably gpu ram problem ? this is the link that i followed to solve my problem if anybody else gets a problem like this.

Fix: Nvlddmkm.sys Blue Screen BSOD Error in Windows 7

edit: it took me a few weeks to do the memtest. I don't like leaving my pc overnight, it heats up my room too much and i wake up dehydrated =/ so i had to find time to those memtests, so it took me a while.
