Random BSOD's. Most commonly error 0x000000A1.

I've been getting BSOD's at random times. From web browsing to playing games sometimes it just crashes. This is coupled with overall slow performance and programs acting up like chrome constantly crashing. I had this issue before but I got a new GPU which I thought would help the problem but I'm still getting crashes.

Hi there,

Your video card driver is one of the reason of the BSODs.
  1. Uninstall the ATI video card drivers including the Catalyst Center.
  2. Reboot the computer and install only the driver (excluding Catalyst Center) from here.

Run system file checker to verify/repair the integrity of system files.
Full tutorial here: SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Let us know if it helped.

I ran sfc /scannow and it said nothing was wrong. I uninstalled the catalyst control center and reinstalled the driver, but I'm still getting crashes.
I'm not overclocking.

Take memtest. Run for 8 passes and test each stick in a know good slot for an additional 6 passes.
Note   Note
Pay close attention to part 3 of the tutorial in order to rule out the faulty stick.

information   Information
Errors are sometimes found after 8 passes.

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

If Memtest86+ does not find any errors with ram run Windows Memory Diagnostics for 7-8 passes following its tutorial:
