Windows 7: Bsod's, random restarts I'm totally confused.

You shouldn't have to re-install windows to get new BSOD crash files.

Good troubleshooting so far.

Did you run Windows memtest?
If you did then you should run memtest86+, it's a much better RAM test.
RAM - Test with Memtest86+
Run with all RAM cards installed, if you get any errors then stop the test.
This runs from CD or USB memory stick, so if your OS isn't stable you can still run the test.

If you can get your OS to run long enough, D/L CPUZ and post a snip of the CPU, Mainboard, Memory, and SPD tabs.

Windows 7 64Bit

two new Bsod's one with aswSP.SYS and screens from cpuz

I checked ram with windows memory and memtest once
today memtest passed two times. No errors

So what happend : After bios update settings was restored. Windows was hanging on a boot logo, or giving me restarts without bsods on desktop.
then I noticed "press 4 to activate asus core something " i activated 6 cores .
Windows Runed! but in device menager he say's unknown amd procesor (six times of course )
Before that windows recognized AMD PHENOM II X4 960T
The problem is i don't really know what Cpu is excatly in the box.
But i don't think that problem is solved, because this machine was in exactly same state few days back, worked fine for 10hours+

Still appreciate your help! What should i do next ?

Edit :
Psu original in machine was tracer highlander 550, I thought it was his fault so i put Bequiet 600
checked that tracer in another box and it's working well

Edit 2: Ram in cpuz is in second slot because i changed it before to check that maybe slot 1 is broken.
first memtest was running on slot 1 accually - no errors

So i figured out that windows can't boot with core#4 Activated. I hope that turning it off will solve the problem. I'll do some test and report .
Thank You guys for all your Help. And keep up the good work!

Good information.

Activating the hidden cores can cause instability, sometimes you get lucky and they work.

Let us know if its any more stable now.
