BSOD on startup and eventually in windows

Hello I've been trying to fix this BSOD problem forever. I'll run a memtest after this post.

I ran the program in the post stickied in this board and I've attached it with the performance monitor html as well.

as for the questions

Is Windows 7 . . .
- x86 (32-bit) or x64 ? x86 (32bit)
- the original installed OS on the system? It's a custom built machine the original windows i installed on it was windows xp but this is a fresh install after a full reformatting of my hard drive.
- an OEM or full retail version? Retail version
- What is the age of system (hardware)? The ram is about 4 years old. the CPU, motherboard, and videocard are about a year old. The hard drive is probably about 2 years old.
- What is the age of OS installation (have you re-installed the OS?) Should be less than a year. no i have not reinstalled the os

How many passes did it make? It needs to make seven passes minimum. That usually takes 6 - 8 hours.

No problem. Many times, errors do not show up in three passes. The RAM has to be stressed longer than that. I recently saw a case where errors did not show until the 13th pass and that turned out to be mismatched RAM.

ran it for 8 1/2 passes over 7 hrs no error. all my ram are the same so i doubt it will be mismatched

Run Memtest from a cold boot the first thing in the morning and see what you get. It could also be a power supply problem. Do you have access to another known good PSU you could test with?

i should have one in the garage somewhere i will try it out. i did suspect it might be the problem since my video card's minimum req. is right on my psu's output.

That makes it a good possibility. A PSU's output declines with age.
