Windows 7: BSOD error 0x0000109 Crashes at anytime

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit
BSOD error 0x0000109 Crashes at anytime

I built this computer last april, and it worked fine for a little bit, but then started crashing about once a day. I eventually wiped it all and re-installed windows 7 64 bit, which helped because then it only crashed about once a week. It will crash randomly now, sometimes 3 times a day or not at all for a week. Any help would be much appreciated. I've included the the dmp files and a health report, hopefully they are in the right format, since i've never done this before.

My computer is running windows 7 home premium, the full retail version.
All parts are just less than a year old.

These are the rest of the specs.
Processor: 3.3 GHz, 6-core, AMD Phenom 1100t, black edition.
Motherboard: Gigabyte 870A, AM3 socket
Video Card: Radeon HD 6850
Hard Drive: 1 Terabyte, 7200rpm Western Digital
CD/DVD player: ASUS, 24x DVDRW
Memory: 8gb (2x4gb) patriot 1333mhz.

Win 8 Release candidate 8400

These crashes were caused by memory corruption/exception (probably a driver).
Please run these two tests to verify your memory and find which driver is causing the problem.

* If you are overclocking anything reset to default before running these tests.
In other words STOP!!!

* If you have raid update its Driver.

*Download a copy of Memtest86 and burn the ISO to a CD using Iso Recorder or another ISO burning program. Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool

*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.

Any errors are indicative of a memory problem.

If a known good stick fails in a motherboard slot it is probably the slot.

RAM - Test with Memtest86+

Driver verifier

Using Driver Verifier is an iffy proposition. Most times it'll crash and it'll tell you what the driver is. But sometimes it'll crash and won't tell you the driver. Other times it'll crash before you can log in to Windows. If you can't get to Safe Mode, then you'll have to resort to offline editing of the registry to disable Driver Verifier.

So, I'd suggest that you first backup your stuff and then make sure you've got access to another computer so you can contact us if problems arise. Then make a System Restore point (so you can restore the system using the Vista/Win7 Startup Repair feature).

Then, here's the procedure:
- Go to Start and type in "verifier" (without the quotes) and press Enter
- Select "Create custom settings (for code developers)" and click "Next"
- Select "Select individual settings from a full list" and click "Next"
- Select everything EXCEPT FOR "Special Pool", "Force Pending I/O Requests" and "Low Resource Simulation" and click "Next"
- Select "Select driver names from a list" and click "Next"
Then select all drivers NOT provided by Microsoft and click "Next"
- Select "Finish" on the next page.

Reboot the system and wait for it to crash to the Blue Screen.
Continue to use your system normally, and if you know what causes the crash, do that repeatedly.
The objective here is to get the system to crash because Driver Verifier is stressing the drivers out.
If it doesn't crash for you, then let it run for at least 36 hours of continuous operation.

Reboot into Windows (after the crash) and turn off Driver Verifier by going back in and selecting "Delete existing settings" on the first page, then locate and zip up the memory dump file and upload it with your next post.

If you can't get into Windows because it crashes too soon, try it in Safe Mode.
If you can't get into Safe Mode, try using System Restore from your installation DVD to set the system back to the previous restore point that you created.

So for the memTest, i should remove one of the sticks, and then test the other one in each slot? And everytime it gives an error message, i should switch slots?

Test one for 6-8 passes. If it passes use it to test each slot. Repeat with the other.

If you get ANY errors it is a problem.
