Windows 7: Random BSODs ... whether desktop is active or idle

Random BSODs ... whether desktop is active or idle

Is Windows 7 . . . - x86 (32-bit) or x64 ?

- the original installed OS on the system?

- an OEM or full retail version?
Full retail - What is the age of system (hardware)?
All parts bought and built in February 2011, except graphics card purchased March 2012, installed last week.

- What is the age of OS installation
(have you re-installed the OS?)
February 2011, have not reformatted since being built.

BSOD/crashing has started since installing a new gfx card. before card I was using onboard graphics, AMD ATI 4200. Upgraded to AMD ATI Radeon 5570. Since then I've been getting random bsods/crashing.

The graphics card was purchased by my brother as a temporary card until he could afford a more expensive one. When he bought the new one he gave the old one to me. It ran perfectly fine in his machine, no crashing or BSODs.

Sometimes can happen immediately upon boot, idling, or heavy load. Nothing specific seems to trigger it.

I've already tried uninstalling gfx drivers and re-installing. Also tried re-seating the graphics card itself. Aside from that I've made no other hardware/software changes since the BSODs started.

Help would be greatly appreciated!

I've ran memtest, it seems like I have a bad stick.

2 sticks = 100+ errors before first past even finishes.
1 stick (stick a, bank a) = errors
1 stick (stick b, bank b) = no errors after a couple passes
1 stick (stick b, bank a) = no errors after a couple passes

I've removed the stick for now and seeing if I still crash.


Have also done the driver verifier thing, it BSODs before windows can boot. Had to boot into safe mode to turn it off. Is there anyway I can check which driver is causing it... or do I have to be able to boot for it to tell me which driver it is?

Well I haven't crashed since removing that 1 stick of RAM but I feel like I'm not out of the woods yet. I still feel like I have a driver issue somewhere. Can anybody check the dumps and help me out?

An attempt was made to access a pageable (or completely invalid) address at an
interrupt request level (IRQL) that is too high.  This is usually
caused by drivers using improper addresses.

Recommend uninstalling the software that is causing crashes.

You do also have some memory related crashes: Bug Check 0x50: PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA and Bug Check 0x1A: MEMORY_MANAGEMENT, so that may very well be why removing one module helped.
