Then in addition test your RAM - Test with Memtest86+ for 5-6 passes or overnight. Test both sticks and slots as shown. Blow any debris out of slots.

It sounds like you have RAM problems. You should run Memtest as Gregrocker suggests before you do anything else. Report back what you find.

If Memtest reports any errors you can stop the test. In that case you should test each stick of RAM individually in the first RAM slot (usually A1) to determine if just one stick is bad.

If all the sticks are bad in slot A1 then you could have a defective RAM slot. In that case test each stick in the first second channel slot (usually A2).

You do not list the brand and model of RAM in your specs. Have you checked to see if that RAM is compatible with that motherboard and CPU?
On your motherboard's website there will be a page where they list their QVL for the board. This is the Qualified Vendors List of RAM that has been tested and approved for the board. You don't have to buy only the RAM on the list, but whatever RAM you buy must meet all of the specifications of the RAM on the list. Pay particular attention to the voltages.

I also noticed that you posted in Hardware asking for recommendations for 64GB of RAM. (I don't do shopping advice). Don't go there until you have done the tests and have determined the cause of the RAM problems.

Alright, another guy told me to run "verifier" which when i did wouldn't even let me log in without a BSOD. I had to go into safe mode to disable it. So here aer the results from that. Now i'm going to do the memory test. Also you should know that currently my memory is 2 dimms that are a 4gb and a 2gb. If I put all in I will have (2) 4gb dimms and (2) 2gb dimms

Do you have another thread open here, and why? Please link it so we know what else is being done.

Yea I took your advice and opened up a new thread in BSOD Help and Support
here's the link Gpt/uefi bsod

Also I took out the 2gb dimm and replaced it with a 4gb so now I only have (2) 4gb dimms installed

Is it stable with that RAM config so far? If not try another, and complete the RAM testing according to the tutorial and with TVeblen's help.

At the same time work with Harry in your other thread to trace the driver crash. It may still be RAM related, but work with Harry to find his own cause since a different process is used reading BSOD's.

I literally just did this so we'll see what happens. After the memory test I might run verifier again to see if I can boot up without crashing with this ram config.

If it is Driver Verifier you are running, that program torture tests drivers. A great tool. But it's purpose is to find and identify problematic device drivers. The only way it won't crash to bluescreen is if you have no faulty drivers.
So keep on with the BSOD guys, if there is a software problem, they will find it!

The RAM issue is a separate test. There are no drivers for RAM. It is pure BIOS-level hardware. So you are working on this separately from the BSOD stuff. (They can be related, surely, but for testing treat them separately). RAM should install and test out fine without an operating system installed at all.

Can you list here the brand and specs of all your current RAM?
