Windows 7: BSOD-RAM Issues?

BSOD-RAM Issues?

So my HP laptop running Windows 7 32 bit has started to have lots of BSOD's. Usually with an error saying something like "Dumping Physical Memory to Disk". I think its some sort of ram faillure. Whenever my ram usage increases the BSOD occurs. So far ive used a win7 repair disc to run the memory diagnostic, which told me that it had identified a hardware problem. I also used memtest86 which said that there were errors (i ran it until about 3 passes).

Its gotten to a point where it crashes immediately after logging in, and the only way to get in without it crashing is safe boot. From there i managed to copy the zip that the sf diagnostic tool generated (attached).

Basically, i would like to know if anyone can confirm that its ram failure, or if if its something that can be fixed (without replacing ram).

Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

Use memtest86+

Test the memory one at a time on every slot

If a memory stick passes on one slot . Test it on another slot

Thanks, I'll try that out when I have some time.
What about the minidump files I attached? Do they say anything interesting?

Thanks for the extremely thorough instructions
I cant update the driver since almost everything i do crashes the pc. The only thing i can do is open windows explorer and browse/copy files.

Ive attached the cbs.log, and im going to run the checkdisk in a bit.

I think ive managed to fix it. I removed the 2 sticks of ram, and switched their positions. (put ram stick 1 into slot 2, and ram stick 2 into slot 1). I then ran memtest again, this time i got no errors after 4 passes. (Before i was getting errors within the first minute of testing). I also ran a blend stress test using prime95 and it ran fine for about 3 hours until i manually stopped it. (Before it would cause a BSOD after a couple minutes).

Not sure if theres still a point in checking the log, but its up to you guys.

Thanks.

4 passes is nothing . You want at least 8 Passes . If you got an error when you were running a memtest then run a memtest once more with one memory stick inside each memory slot to find what memory stick is the culprit . If you have a dual channel memory kit replace both memory sticks even if one of the sticks is bad .
