Strange, this was a bugcheck 50.Probable causes:
Defective hardware (particularly memory - but not just RAM), Faulty system service, Antivirus, Device driver, NTFS corruption, BIOS

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.

RAM - Test with Memtest86+

There is still something wrong there and, statistically the RAM has the highest chance... but feel free to do the other tests first:
Try this free stress test: Free Software - GIMPS
Quote:
Prime95 Setup:
- extract the contents of the zip file to a location of your choice
- double click on the executable file
- select "Just stress testing"
- select the "Blend" test. If you've already run MemTest overnight you may want to run the "Small FFTs" test instead.
- "Number of torture test threads to run" should equal the number of CPU's times 2 (if you're using hyperthreading).
The easiest way to figure this out is to go to Task Manager...Performance tab - and see the number of boxes under CPU Usage History
Then run the test for 6 to 24 hours - or until you get errors (whichever comes first).
The Test selection box and the stress.txt file describes what components that the program stresses.

just had another 2 bsod again it crashed into a bsod but it stopped at 85 when collecting the dump and i had to reboot it myself after that when i was going in windows another bsod came and it adviced me to do recovery again but i didnt i went in my bios in stead and it looks like it changed a few settings i think it went back to default settings dont know if its normal but i changed back my settings and booted again and i could get in to windows without bsod again

ive put the report in attachements in my folder it put the dumps before the one opf this afternoon so the 2 bsod are the second and 3 rd last in the row one of them.

edit : ive started to doing the prime test but i would be suprised if my cpu gives problems cause for school projects i have to render out 3d movies with cinema 4d that also put my cpu to 100% in working and i never had any problems with it

This is weird, it is unable to discern the last faulting module and the second to last one again points to memory.
Are you sure the memory fits the mobo and has the right timings?
Meanwhile I'll ask someone else to help here....
