Windows 7: BSODs on win 7 x64

BSODs on win 7 x64

I recently upgraded to win 7 and iv been getting random BSODs. the reason I decided to upgrade was because I started to get some BSODs on vista x64. I have a feeling it could be related to my wireless adapter (ZYXEL G202) drivers. I have attached the latest BSOD minidump files. Could somebody please help me out its getting really frustrating when your in the middle of doing something.

Could it be my RAM? I used to overclock but since the BSODs started popping up iv returned everything to stock.

If you upgraded, I would first do a complete reinstall and reformat.

Sorry my bad, I didn't mean upgrade in that way. OS was installed on a fresh new HDD which was formatted.

You might be right. Run Memtest86+ for a couple of passes, and then install the newest NIC drivers for you adaptor.

Ok just tested on Memtest86+ as suggested and didn't get through even one pass before it locked up and started showing errors in the thousands!
Thanks for the help!
Just one last question. Would it be wise to reformat and install windows again after I get the new RAM? In case there are some errors in system files.

In most cases it isn't necessary. Use the system for a couple of days before you decide.
