Windows 7: BSOD error 0x8000000000000002

Windows 7 32-bit
BSOD error 0x8000000000000002

Hi guys,

I'm using Windows 7 32-bit and I'm having random BSOD few time every day. It already happened 4 times today. Sometimes it doesn't happen for 10 hours, sometimes it happens after 1 hour or less, there's no rule to it. It doesn't matter what I do - it happens when I play games, browse the internet or even not doing anything at all.

Since the problem is new, I think that it may be related to 1GB of DDR-2 memory I've added recently to 2 GB I already have. The memory module is good (I've used it in the other computer for years without any problem and I've tested it anyway). Windows does recognise that I have 3 GB of memory (as well as the PC when I boot it).

Oh, and I can't post dump, because Windows is not making any. Event View is the best I can do.

Here is what Event View says every time it happens:

Log Name: System
Source: Microsoft-Windows-Kernel-Power
Date: 21.10.2011 19:28:32
Event ID: 41
Task Category: (63)
Level: Critical
Keywords: (2)
Computer: Nikola-PC
The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly.

System File Checker says that there are no integrity violations. I've enabled minidump using your guide, but it still does not seem to work, the last minidump I have is 6 months old.

So I guess that running BSOD Dump & System File Collection won't help you that much.
