BSOD thinking im low on memory when im not and other problems

I have a 2010 refurbished desktop i bought from I only had it a week and yesterday i was running a program and it had to shut down cause it said i was low on memory,then later it blue screened on me and then blue screened again and i know it said something about memory on the blue screen

so i did this thinking it might help

*Based on Windows 7 Pro (as a example)
1- Rt Click the Computer icon, Properties
2- click on Advanced System Settings (top left area of window)
3- now on the Advanced tab, click the Settings button under performance
4- on the Performance Options window, choose the Advanced tab there
5- Click the Change button under Virtual Memory below
6- Choose Custom Size and set both Initial and Max memory to the Recommended amount as seen at the bottom of this Virtual Memory window. Then click the Set button there.
7- Click OK, Click Apply and Restart your computer so the new settings will take effect.

well today (tuesday) when i was running a game it blue screened again it said this time IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

I updated some drivers from acers website and downloaded some windows updates its been working fine no crashes when just on net and few things i dont want to test it untill i try all possible fixes,idk if it only crashes when i have a big program running or what.

intel core i5 CPU 650 @ 3.20 GHz

memory RAM 6.00 GB

The two .txt files you gave are not MiniDumps. They are reports from a 3rd party .dmp analysis tool. We need the actual crash reports. All your .txt files show is that you are having problems with Windows and they may be related to faulty memory or driver conflicts.

Please follow the to provide us with your crash reports.
