Windows 7 Ultimate PC Crashing Randomly

Had issues with this machine that was corrected in an early post but returned when I tried to install Microsoft Digital Image Standard 2006. Since then Ive done a Clean install and all was well until I had 4 BSODs about 3-4 days apart doing different things...

Ill List Specs and post results of SF_Diagnostic_Tool.

Thank you in advance for your help.
System Specs


Win 7 Ultimate x64
AMD Athon II X3 Processor
Gigabyte MA770T-UD3
ADATA XPG Gaming Series 4GB (2 x 2GB)
Crucial Ballistix 4GB (2x2GB)
EVGA Geforce 8400GS
RAIDMAX RX-500AF
COOLER MASTER Elite RC-330-KKR1

Side Issue: I installed 4 Crucial Ballistic 2 GB Ram chips in this machine and it wouldnt start up... I also tried each individually as first 2gb sets and then 1 each and it wouldnt start until I placed the ADATA sticks in... Any suggestions?
