Windows 7: Erratic BSOD's after a few minutes, RAM prob working

chkdsk fixed some problems in C:, but after I ran the updater it was the same result: a missing .mbr file, status 0x000000f, and the same version when I checked upon start.

Thanks for the advice! After fixing it I noticed that there was a boot disc firmware option, so I went with that, and it seems successfully updated:

I'll run it through some stress tests and let you know if it is resolved.

EDIT: Sorry for the double-post. I had not noticed the topic posts had gone to page 2 already. :O

Update is successful!! Now observe how the computer is working (normally, no stress test is needed at this point). Let us know about it.

Perfect! After the firmware update I don't seem to be getting anymore BSOD. Thanks you soooo much! Though I won't know why the firmware was damaged, I'm happy it's working again, been alright for many hours! Thank you thank you!

Firmware was not damaged. It gone backdated.

If you use a SSD, you need to keep the firmware up-to-date.
The latest firmwares work good with the combination of latest BIOS and the latest storage controller. Your BIOS was not very old, and your storage controller was msahci.sys (the system native controller); so I did not suggest you to update those.

Let us know for any further issue.
