Windows 7: BSOD IRQL/Memory Management/everything else

I ran one stick in the bad slot, it showed errors after 2 passes or so. I took a photo, but the flash all but ruined the image that time.

It was the same kind of error though. Memory address failure.

Did you run the other RAM card in the bad slot to confirm that it is bad, let us know if it has errors?

This will confirm a bad slot on the MOBO.

Let us know the results.

Edit:
I just reviewed the thread, again, you said the RAM voltage was 1.5v, this is low for an AMD board.

This RAM is listed for i5 and i7 boards and for AMD3 boards. This has been a cause of RAM issues for others.
The i5 and i7 boards generally run RAM at 1.5v to max 1.65.
The AMD boards generally run RAM at 1.65v or higher.

If your RAM is set at 1.5v, one reference states this RAM is rated at 1.55v - 1.75v.

It's worth a try to bump the voltage for the RAM.

First, D/L CPUZ, open it and post the CPU, Memory and SPD tabs.

I will review your MOBO manual and info on the RAM before we start to increase the voltage.

Let us know the CPUZ info.


Information from your Ram website:
IC Configuration: 128M x8

Information from your MOBO manual, page 1-12:
This motherboard does not support DIMMs made up of 256 megabits (Mb) chips or less.

The MOBO manual doesn't list your RAM on the compatible list.

The A-DATA RAM from the MOBO manual list for DDR3-1600MHz capability:
A-Data AD31600X002GMU 4096MB(Kit of 2) DS Heat-Sink Package 7-7-7-20 1.75-1.85V

You mentioned previously that all the parts are still under warranty, I would recommend to return the RAM and get some from the compatible list of your MOBO manual.
Even if we get this to run, you'll likely have more compatibility issues with the RAM you have now.

EDIT: Disregard that, you guys were right. It's a compatibility problem.

Attached is my CPU-Z.

The RAM stick that I removed reads:
DDR3-1600G
CL: 9-9-9-24
Voltage: 1.55-1.75V

The RAM seems to be 'acceptable' at least for my motherboard - I'm back to thinking that either the RAM sticks interact with each other in a way that creates memory address errors, or that the DIMM slot on the motherboard is bad.

Either way, I think I have to run those memtests again for the full 7 passes.

Take a screen shot of the CPUZ tabs mentioned above, with the Snipping tool, Start button> All Programs> Accessories> Snipping Tool.
Save to a convenient place.

Then post using this method.

This will give us some information needed to continue.

You should be monitoring you CPU temperatures when running Prime95 or memtest86.
D/L Core Temp and have it open when testing.

Can you confirm that your RAM voltage is set to 1.5v?

When you have RAM settings, voltages and timings, which are not adjusted and tested correctly this can cause stability issues including what your are experiencing.
This may be only part of the resolution to your issues.

We still need to confirm your BIOS settings, a good start is with the CPUZ tabs, CPU, Memory, SPD.
Please post these, the CPUZ file you attached does not have the information required to proceed.

These two possibilities need to be addressed.
The first part, how the RAM interact with each other and with the system will depend on several things. The voltage being the one that should be looked at first. Let's get the information on the RAM before we start.

Once everything is confirmed the next step is to adjust the voltage.
If your RAM voltage is set to 1.5v, you need to manually set it to 1.55v then run memtest86, if you still get errors then increase it to 1.6v and run memtest86 again, do not exceed 1.75v.

Read your MOBO manual BIOS section, linked above, to find out where to do this.

Even if we get it to run better, it may continue to give errors and BSoDs.
This is due to the compatibility of the RAM with your MOBO, of the RAM you have.

SPD only for slot 2 because the computer crashes if I put anything in slot 1.

This is the problem when the RAM manufacturer tries to make their products work on everything.

Monitor CPU temps with Core Temp, or equivalent program while testing.

Once everything is confirmed the next step is to adjust the voltage.

Start with one RAM card in the good slot, slot 2.

If your RAM voltage is set to 1.5v, you need to manually set it to 1.55v then run memtest86, if you still get errors then increase it to 1.6v and run memtest86 again, do not exceed 1.75v.

Read your MOBO manual BIOS section, linked above, to find out where to do this.

When you stop getting BSoD then run the test with RAM card in the previous bad slot, slot 1.
If that passes then run memtest86 with both RAM cards installed.

Let us know the results.

BIOS set to overvoltage level of 1.56 V.

DIMM slot 1 still produces errors on memtest, with both RAM sticks.

Set the RAM voltage to 1.6v and run memtest86 again.
If your still getting errors and/or BSoDs, set the RAM voltage to 1.65v and run memtest86 again.

When testing one RAM card in slot 2, is it passing memtest86?

Be sure to monitor your temperatures.

Slot 2 hasn't produced errors yet, at least not for the tests I've run - 3 passes at 1.5V with both sticks, and 3 passes at 1.56V.

I'll update my system specs and increase the voltage more.
