Windows 7: BSOD At start up - W7ULT - Memory BSOD related

BSOD At start up - W7ULT - Memory BSOD related

These errors and problems have occured since I first got my computer. I just assumed that it was a problem that always happened and when I was on W7 x64 Home Premium I just ended up never getting a BSOD after a while but my computer would always restart on shut down.

Now I'm on Windows 7 Ultimate, new SSD and recently changed my DRAM Voltage to 1.6v from 1.5v (after the dumps) along with a few other properties in my BIOS I've also lost the ability to connect to my HDD but since I've just updated by BIOS and had no connected hard drive I've not suffered a single BSOD.

Now from this I'm guessing the BSOD txt files will say something about memory, I noticed the main culprit being memory related so I upped my voltage.
I'm suspect to believe it's a driver error as well as memory errors.

I also can't get back on to my HDD, I don't understand why, I only changed the voltage in the BIOS settings...

Any help Seven?

EDIT: System Specs are below already via drop down menu.

So far so good, I will inform you of any problems if any arise.

Updated all drivers, ran memtest and fixed bios, things should be clear from here on.

Thank you for your help Arc!

Your crash dumps are not showing any finite probable cause. In such a situation, it is better to enable Driver Verifier to monitor the drivers.

Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable

Run Driver Verifier for 24 hours or the occurrence of the next crash, whichever is earlier.

Let us know the results, with the subsequent crash dumps, if any.
