Windows 7: Crashing: Gotten me at my wits end.

Crashing: Gotten me at my wits end.

As the title states, no ,matter what I do, I am constantly crashing. At first I thought it was a compatibility issue with my RAM, as my old DIMMs were not on the QVL for my motherboard. So today I bought new DIMMs that were on the QVL, and much to my surprise, after a while on Team Fortress 2,

BLUE SCREEN OF DEATH!

I have just about given up. I reformatted my hard disk just for this OS, thinking that it would solve the problems I have been having in the past, but nothing I have done has fixed it. Please... please someone help me.I'll upload the memory dump somewhere and link it once I have finished.


EDIT: I crashed again in the process of uploading the dump file, so I guess now I have TWO dumps to link. Also, I just set my system specs for your viewing.

Another Edit, now with 100% more Minidump!

This one was while TF2 was running:
Will Host For Food!

This one happened while simply browsing the web:
Will Host For Food!

And here is the whole story of me in my own little corner of computing HELL:

I'm uploading the dumps now.

Also, my computer froze... AGAIN! It didn't even bother to Bluescreen. It went for the "**** both you and your chair!" type of crash.

Did this always happen on this system? I have only seen this once and it was a ram stick that was bad. Made my hair turn grey and fall out

It has never simply frozen like that, no. Crashing however has always been an issue, regardless of OS.

I haven't disappeared. I am just having trouble getting the dump uploaded. Just to make sure that I am even uploading the right file, it's C:\Windows\MEMORY.dmp right?

If it's regardless of OS, then it's a fair bet that it's hardware.

The usual questions:

Are you overclocking?

Have you run memtest86+?
Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool

What is your PSU rated at?

Is it self-built and been crash ing since day one?

No, that's too large. It's the minidumps from C:\Windows\Minidump

No, I am not overclocking.

I have yet to run memtest, but I am lacking software to write an ISO to a disk.

It is self built, and I have been using/upgrading it with varying degrees of success. The worst crashing fits I have had occurred after this most recent overhaul.

My PSU is rated at 750 Watts.

Also, I guess I shouldn't say "Regardless of OS" since I ran Linux and never crashed.

If anyone wants to be cute and say "Then just use Linux," get out.

Alright, I'll upload the minidumps instead.
