I have tried everything suggested with no luck with the exception of this driver as I'm unsure of how to install it.






Here's my latest dump files from the past two nights.

You should not install that driver .... actually that one is the driver you already have installed. I pointed it out as there was a suggestion to update storage driver whereas the update is not feasible.

But, storport.sys is still in the list of unloaded modules. Which should be taken care. Can you update the BIOS? If not, let us know, we will ask for our hardware experts to guide you in it.

Your present BIOS is:
Code:
BiosVersion = FB
BiosReleaseDate = 08/26/2011
I'd suggest you to install it BIOS version FC, dated 2012/06/05, from GIGABYTE - Motherboard - Socket AM3+ - GA-M68MT-S2 (rev. 3.1)



When done, disable memory caching of the BIOS (All the BIOS setups are different, but the logic is the same).

Finally, the latest dump indicates to the display driver, which is the latest version. Before altering the driver, I would suggest you a couple of tests.

Test your RAM modules for possible errors.
How to Test and Diagnose RAM Issues with Memtest86+
Run memtest for at least 8 passes, preferably overnight.

Stress test the Graphics Card using Furmark.
Video Card - Stress Test with Furmark

Another BSOD indicates to bugcheck 0x1. May I ask you which antivirus/firewall do you use?

Let us know the results.

I have updated the bios to the newest version but was unable to locate memory caching in the bios.

I have also run memtest and it came up with like 1000 errors, I am currently trying to pin point which ram stick has the errors. Question - Could my operating system be corrupted from installing it with bad ram? Would the best option be to buy new ram and do a fresh install and see if the problem is fixed?

Go to part 3 of How to Test and Diagnose RAM Issues with Memtest86+
Say you have two RAM sticks and two DIMM slots. You obtained errors at the test with all RAM sticks installed. Now, remove all the sticks but one. Test it in all the available slots, one by one. Continue the same procedure for all the available sticks.
How to make the inference that is it a RAM issue or it is a motherboard issue? Suppose you have got the result like that:
testSlot1Slot2
RAM1ErrorError
RAM2GoodGood
It is a RAM, a bad RAM.

But if you have got a result like that:
testSlot1Slot2
RAM1ErrorGood
RAM2ErrorGood
It is a motherboard issue. The particular slot is bad.

Probably not.

Still, if you like, you may go for a clean reinstall. But if the RAM is really corrupted, it would not be of any help.

Plan to replace the RAM< after completing the third part to determine which is bad actually.
