Here are the results from the RAM test. Stick 1 passed in SLOT 1, Stick 2 Failed in SLOT 1(Had like 80000k errors or somthing like that), Stick 1 and 2 both passed in Slot 2. I have ran the chkdsk i think the results are good, not sure how to find the report or if there is one. If there is do i need to attach it? Not sure how to find the report. Not really sure what to make of the ram test. Somtimes the DRAM LED will show solid red but other times it will remain off. Also i used Crystal Disk and health status is good at 32C.

Well Stick 2 failed so there is a high probability that it is defective. how long/how many passes did you ran the test with stick 2 in slot 2? Like I suggested before, run the machine with only the one good stick in slot 1 and see if the BSOD reoccurs.
Here is a nice tot how to review your chkdsk logs through event viewer

You don't need to attach the chkdsk results. Just for your own peace of mind see if windows found errors and made changes (corrections) to the file system (after discovering a defective RAM I kind of expect that chkdsk didn't find anything wrong)

Still this could point to a bad slot 1.

I put the Working RAM from slot 2 into slot 1 and upon startup the red DRAM LED was on, after that windows would not boot from RAM only in slot 1. As for the passes I ran that test for 3hours or so. But since I have been running the "Good" RAM in slot 2 I have not had a BSOD. So that is good news.

Good news, sort of. That would seem to condemn the slot 1 as being bad.
