Ok after 48 hours here's the driver verifier results with 29 BSOD's. I'm turning driver verifier off now.

You can definitely turn off Driver Verifier. Every dump blamed either a Windows system driver or memory corruption. No third party drivers were blamed. Several dumps indicated nvstor32.sys was involved in the crash; but did not directly blame it. Other than the two drivers below, your drivers appear to be up to date. Good job updating them.

I suggest that you run Memtest again from a cold boot after your computer has been off for a while, a couple of hours anyway. Let it run for 7 passes and post back your results. Post back with the results.

Well I did do a memtest 7 passes perfectly after a cold boot like the way you said there was no errors a few days back and posted the results.

I may have found a solution to the problem. One month ago I switched my original 2 x 1GB ram sticks because I was having random BSODS, I believe one of the orginal sticks were bad. So replaced both original sticks with 2 x 2GB ram sticks which I am using now (identical sticks that both passed the memtest criteria)...

So what I did now, was remove one of the 2GB sticks and run only one 2GB stick. So it works with no BSOD it's been about 30 hours. I read on some forums that people many people had similar problems when they ran 4GB of ram on Windows and it ran perfectly when they had 2GB or less on Win 7 32 bit system. So I want to attribute this to the reasons why I was getting BSOD's. But it was odd becuz my system did work for 3 weeks with 4GB of ram.

So if this is true, I was wondering if there's any settings I can change to make that last 2GB work or should I just forget about having 4GB ram and stick with 2GB?

I am glad you figured out the source of your problem. Good work. And thank you for letting us know.

I am not a hardware Guru; thus I cannot intelligently answer your question. I suggest your start a thread in the Hardware and Devices section, Hardware & Devices - Windows 7 Forums. There are some very knowledgeable hardware Gurus there. You will get your answer.
