Windows 7: BSOD due to ntoskrnl.exe?

BSOD due to ntoskrnl.exe?

I get blue screens at least once a day. Sitill unknown. I ran memtest and prime95 last month with no errors. BlueScreenView shows ntoskrnl on a few of the crashes.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

These are caused by several things all of which pointing to hardware.

I would re-run memtest for the proscribed 6-7 passes. One stick at a time, and test the mobo slots with known good ram.

Download a copy of Memtest86 and burn the ISO to a CD using Iso Recorder or another ISO burning program. Boot from the CD, and leave it running for at least 5 or 6 passes.

Just remember, any time Memtest reports errors, it can be either bad RAM or a bad motherboard slot. Test the sticks individually, and if you find a good one, test it in all slots.

An attempt was made to access a pageable (or completely invalid) address at an
interrupt request level (IRQL) that is too high.  This is usually
caused by drivers using improper addresses.
If a kernel debugger is available get the stack backtrace.
Arg1: fffffa7fffffffd8, memory referenced
Arg2: 0000000000000002, IRQL
Arg3: 0000000000000001, bitfield :
    bit 0 : value 0 = read operation, 1 = write operation
    bit 3 : value 0 = not an execute operation, 1 = execute operation (only on chips which support this level of status)

To cover possible OS corruption I would also run a system file check

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Well, I ram memtest and it came back fine. One stick at a time, and a good one in every slot . Blew out dust. Reinstalled memory; DIMMS in different slots. Then it ws rebooting like it had hiccups. Reseated all DIMMs. Still BSODS; these are worse; on restore, startup, and after a few minutes after a boot.

I have to assume that somewhere is a bad DIMM and I should replace all; I was considering upgrading to 8GB anyway
