Windows 7: BSOD at random intervals, Page Fault Error

BSOD at random intervals, Page Fault Error

Recently- this started for the first time about 4 weeks ago- I've been getting a BSOD. I don't have an image yet but the error is always:

PAGE FAULT IN NONPAGED AREA

The first time it happened, I thought nothing of it because I was told that I could ignore it if it only happened once. Today (weeks later), however, it happened another two times. Both times today. I am getting worried.

I attached the recommended .zip folder to this post and would really appreciate the help.

EDIT: Updated the .zip since it was missing some data.

Hi The World.

The crash dumps are pointing to memory corruption.
Code:
BugCheck 50, {fffffa8188ab6548, 0, fffff800031a83e0, 5}


Could not read faulting driver name
Probably caused by : memory_corruption ( nt!MiGetWorkingSetInfo+2b0 )

Followup: MachineOwner
---------
A memory corruption may occur not only due to a failing RAM but also due to some driver passing bad info to the memory. Let us check the both possibilities one by one.

Test your RAM modules for possible errors.
How to Test and Diagnose RAM Issues with Memtest86+
Run memtest86+ for at least 8 consecutive passes.

If it start showing errors/red lines, stop testing. A single error is enough to determine that something is going bad there.

If it does not show any error, enable Driver Verifier to monitor the drivers.
Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable
Run Driver Verifier for 24 hours or the occurrence of the next crash, whichever is earlier.

information   Information
Why Driver Verifier:
It puts a stress on the drivers, ans so it makes the unstable drivers crash. Hopefully the driver that crashes is recorded in the memory dump.

How Can we know that DV is enabled:
It will make the system bit of slow, laggy.

warning   Warning
Before enabling DV, make it sure that you have earlier System restore points made in your computer. You can check it easily by using CCleaner looking at Tools > System Restore.

If there is no points, make a System Restore Point manually before enabling DV.

Tip   Tip

Let us know the results, with the subsequent crash dumps, if any.

I'll take the suggested path and leave memtest running overnight. I'll get back to you with the results

IMHO it will need more time to complete 8 passes on 16 GBs.

That's fine, since I don't get out of class until after 6:45 pm. I don't know how much It'd need but ~15 hours should be enough, no?
