Windows 7: lots of bsod issues :(

Windows 7 64-bit
lots of bsod issues :(

Hi! I been having issues with this computer since day 1. I used a combination of spare parts from a gutted computer and a new mobo. I put everything together and things worked fine. For the most part, I know everything worked when it was on Windows XP from the gutted computer. I hooked everything up to a new GB mobo and there seemed to be no problems.

Fast forward to the Win 7 x64.... I have had nothing but BSOD on multiple occassions ranging from doing nothing to browsing the net to gaming. I have recently uninstalled AVG and Zipgenius and replaced them with Avira and 7zip.

I'm at the point where I want to chuck it out the window. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Here is a few suggestions you should try based on your dump files:

1.Run sfc /scannow command from an elevated command prompt ( in start search type cmd then right click the icon and click "Run as administrator" then scan the whole system files by typing run chkdsk /r to check disk errors. as Tuan stated...

2. Run memtest for at least 7 passes.

3. Make sure you are up to date with the latest ATI drivers. Perform a clean uninstall of the drivers then boot in safe mode and use driversweeper to clean up the leftovers from ATI. Allow the system to restart and load default vga drivers before installing the latest drivers.

Just a quick update:

1. I ran the check disk as requested and watched it all the way to 75% of step 5/5 and saw no errors. I can assume that it completed without a hitch.

3. I have done this a few times.

Now, for #2 I think you hit the nail on the head. Currently, memtest is almost 100% finished with the second pass and I have 576 errors. Most of my errors are in memory addresses 363.7 MB, 299.7 MB and 4372.8 MB.

I can assume this means at least one of my four memory sticks are bad. Thankfully they are all Corsair so I have submitted a RMA request with them for all four sticks. We'll see what they say.

Outside of the RAM, do you all think there is anything else wrong that I should fix before shipping the RAM out?

Also, before I forget, thank you very much for the help thus far.

No, pretty sure the RAM was your problem. I would not recommend using Avira as your anti-virus though, as we have seen that cause BSODs. I recommend Microsoft Security Essentials instead.
