Thanks for the update! May be a day or two before my next reply as I need to go into town for blank disks. A friend of mine told me he had similar problems and that he replaced his RAM and that fixed it. However he also said he had 1 consistent BSOD where as I have had many different ones so we'll see!

Hey so I finally have been able to run a memtest last night. It went for 8 passes and I'm not sure what I was supposed to be looking for in particular but I ended up with over 1 million errors, which doesn't sound good at all. A friend of mine suggested buying new ram entirely and replacing it all as testing to find out which ram out of 8190 mb would be difficult. I took a picture of the memtest screen with my cell phone and can upload that if you need it.

Start with Step 6 in my link below to test the individual stick(s) and slots

I tested every stick in every slot and the memtest would spit out errors as soon as it hit 30% during the first pass for each stick. I guess I'm going to dig up my old packaging and send it in to whomever covers my warranty. I was hoping it wouldn't come to this. Thanks for your help though!
