Windows 7: BSOD even after replacing RAM.

Welp, it definitely wasn't. Just blue screened at the end of the match I was playing(Again, IRQL and 0a), on boot up it wouldn't power up the screen(Probably a fail to even boot the BIOS) so I moved the RAM around(Which fixed it last time) and now it works. It ran a startup repair, said it couldn't fix it, was a Driver problem.

Are we sure this isn't probably a problem with my Motherboard? The RAM isn't the problem, it's brand new. Literally like a week or two old.

I'm thinking I should uninstall the drivers and reinstall them, maybe that might help.

Edit: It seems that every time the computer BSOD's and goes into a "Unable to even boot up into BIOS" mode(Monitor is on but it's not doing anything, same with the tower but nothing is happening) I have to reseat the RAM to get it to boot back up. Could this be related?

Maybe, not sure. When you reboot... and it doesn't work, after which you reseat the RAM... the reboot was that with a full power-off? If it happens again, reboot after switching off your power supply. Without shifting RAM and restarting...

Did nothing. I switched off the power supply for about five minutes after the BSOD happened(Just a few minutes ago) and it didn't do anything. Then when I was about to reseat the RAM(I was going to open the computer up again) it started working(Although this same thing has happened before without me needing to reseat the RAM or turning the PSU off). It also froze while I was in the BIOS looking at some settings.

That last statement is important... " It also froze while I was in the BIOS looking at some settings." That means it is HW and/or BIOS and not (or not only) W7.

I don't have personal experience with you mobo but please go to the manufacturer site and see if they have mobo testing stuff and/or a newer BIOS version? If you need help on that, post back. We'll see what we can do.

Alright, well there isn't a newer BIOS version, I tried doing that prior to the format a few months back, and it didn't find any newer versions. I can't seem to find a test for the mobo though, so I've been thinking of getting a new mobo, however I'm not sure if I should go with this one:
Newegg.com - MSI 870S-G46 AM3 AMD 870 SATA 6Gb/s ATX AMD Motherboard

From the feedback a lot of people are getting a dead on arrival motherboard which worries me, and I don't really trust Biostar after this whole debacle so I'd rather not get a refurbished one if absolutely necessary.

Edit: Uhh, I don't know how but the Blue Screens stopped in Bad Company 2, I played like four hours straight without anything happening, closing it and opening it every hour just to make sure nothing would happen. Not sure what to make of that...

If by closing and opening you mean saving the game, closing, opening and continue....if that works whilst continuous play does not... then you have 2 different problems.
1. the mobo (as it failed in BIOS). This could also be caused by other hardware (PSU for example)
2. The game could have a memory leak.

It works with continuous play as well, spent two hours doing just fine, while yesterday it wouldn't even work for a few minutes without a BSOD.

Edit: Oh, and the game nor Windows updated anything over the course of the day as well.

Nope, it's a bit warm, but we've got it set up in the basement(It's always cold down here year round) and we've got a dehumidifier AND air conditioner going, so it's never warm, and even then the CPU has never gone past 45 degrees Celsius(I was told this is about average heat for things) and I have either two or three fans going inside the case, I can't recall at the moment. I doubt it's a heat problem.

Something must've changed though.... for it to function well now...
Are you sure there was no windows update or something like that? Did you check the maintenance center to see?

BSOD after replacing heatsink
Hello, I was using a stock heatsink in my computer before, and was receiving strange readings of a CPU at 113 degrees Celsius, so I opened it up, installed a better heatsink, and still got the same results. I learned that Speccy is just defaulting to that temperature because it can't read it. ...
