You had to do the reverse. Uninstall drivers, reboot in safe mode then use gpuclean to remove leftovers
of driver strings.

Device Clean Boot

To be honest, You have so much issues,

I would do a clean install, no drivers except INF file after install and the latest AMD drivers for onboard video. No sound drivers, nothing. let the machine run.

If you don't have crashes, then the mem is not affected and it driver issue.

Can you update the video drivers with the ones that 2 of us suggested before?

Then,

You need to troubleshoot.

Click Start, type "devmgmt.msc" (without quotation marks) in the Search bar and press Enter.

Expand "Sound, video and game controllers".

Right click on your sound card and then click "Properties.

In the dropdown menu of Device Usage, please choose "Do not use this device (disable)" and click OK.

Also, did you install INF chipset drivers when you did a clean install before anything else?
