Windows 7: win 7 keeps crashing

Memtest will identify problems with RAM without opening the case, but if memtest finds errors, you're going to have to pull the RAM anyway and test 1 stick at a time. Like I said, simple step, couldn't hurt.

How many passes in Memtest did you do? You should do at least 7 before declaring 'all is well'. I can't find Timings for that particular stick. Is that 1 4GB stick, or 4 1GB sticks or 2 2GB sticks? The timings I found for the 1GB stick was 7-7-7-20

never mind mate, i found the problem, my MB's not supporting this specific stick model, and because of that it can only work fine @ default Timing & Frequency ( = 5-5-5-14 & 800MHz)
i need to go to the store and have a 'little' chat with the man who i bought the pc from

Depending on how much RAM you have,7 passes can run 6-8 hours. I have 8 GB and it took 12 hours. 7 successful passes is the recommended indicator that at least your RAM and the motherboard slots for them are OK

7 passes without an error.. its fine, but it continues crashing.
i wonder if its because i manually close some proccesses via task manager, on the other hand, those are only the ones who come from the my username, not windows ones.
can it be the possible problem?
(even with 800MHz frequency + 5-5-5-14 like some other ppl recommended at the Setup, its crashing non-stop.)
