Windows 7: BSOD again

I didn't do anything to the registry, I always do uninstalls correctly and don't manually mess with the registry.

Well, I just got a BSOD again.

When I can get the computer to startup, I'll post the necessary files.

And again I can't get past post. Nothing shows after I try to reboot.

I got BSOD again. This was when I was trying to get my LAN to connect so I could post the dmp file.

Well, my LAN port somehow stopped working, I tried to "repair" and it gave me BSOD. So I'm reinstalling the driver.
Okay, this is weird, I tried reinstalling the driver and configuring the IP address, but the adaptor doesn't recognise the network. It keeps giving me 'unidentified network' and won't connect me even though I entered the correct IP/subnet values.

I can't get my network adaptor on the P5Q-pro to work now, it just gives me 'unidentified network'.
Here are the latests dmp files.
Only those dated 10/10/2010 are the recent ones,2 of them.

Have you tried using only two sticks of RAM?

I did a bit of searching in relation to my old blue screens, and it seems that some of the P5Q boards (including the P5Q and the P5Q Pro) can exhibit odd behaviour with 4 sticks of RAM. One symptom that someone posted about was the onboard LAN 'disappearing', and there are a lot of "random" blue screen reports.

While it may be a bit of a long shot, as you've built the system yourself, I can't see giving it a shot doing any harm.

Hi Pirl, what does 'disappearing' mean? I see the adaptor in device manager and also my network connections. But it just doesn't seem to work now. This actually just happened.

Well it suddenly started working again, the lan that is. :S

By 'disappearing' I mean that it no longer shows up in Windows.

Oh, it shows up in windows. I checked everything it shows that it is 'working correctly'.
But unfortunately it shows 'unidentified network' and 'unable to connect to network'.

Sometimes it shows network cable unplugged.
Now it's working fine, after i did a diagnose and repair. The repair message was "DNS server address incorrect" or something of that sort. But I followed the exact same DNS server as my netbook.

After 3 reboots since getting back network access, it seems to be working.
This happened previously as well, but not so serious.

Could this be the problem to my BSODs?

I'm about 12 hours off confirming that my blue screens were related to having four sticks of RAM installed (any combination of which, in pairs of two, seem to be fine)

How do you confirm them? I'm sorry if this seems like a stupid question. Because I can run memtest86 for 12h (overnight) on 4 sticks of ram without any errors.

You take two sticks out and see if you get the blue screens anywhere near as often.

For me, I was getting them randomly between a few minutes after boot to ~a day after boot.
Since I took two sticks out ~2.5 days ago I haven't had one.

If I get 3 days of uptime without a blue screen with 2 sticks when I could hardly get 1 day with 4 sticks, I see it as a reasonable assumption that it's somehow related to having 4 sticks in.

I see, thanks, I'll give it a try. It's been up for a while now without any issues.
The problem is I can't leave the computer on when I leave the house, my area is prone to unexpected weather changes and thunderstorms can occur out of the blue.

My house is quite prone to lightning strikes, so I usually unplug when I leave the house.
