Windows 7: BSOD After SSD upgrade and Ram upgrade in Laptop. Mostly IRQL errors

BSOD After SSD upgrade and Ram upgrade in Laptop. Mostly IRQL errors

Like the title said, I'm getting random BSOD after upgrading to SSD and RAM.
Initially I thought it was the Intel Rapid Technology, because the system improved after I've installed. But now it still BSOD, but less frequent.

Here are my dump files and jcgriff2 files



Edit: Sorry I didn't put my CPU config, silly me.
Asus u46SV
Intel Core i5-2410M
2 x 4GB Corsair Value Select Ram (NEW+NEW)
GeForce GT 540M
OCZ Vertex 4 128GB firmware v1.5 (Latest+NEW)

  • Have you updated to the latest firmware for your SSD?

Usual causes: Kernel mode driver, System Service, BIOS, Windows, Virus scanner,
Backup tool, compatibility

Usual causes: Device driver, memory

Usual causes: Defective hardware (particularly memory - but not just RAM),
Faulty system service, Antivirus, Device driver, NTFS corruption, BIOS

Kaspersky does cause BSoDs. Please uninstall it and use Microsoft Security Essentials (at least to test)

Free up your start-up, keep nothing except the antivirus
Startup Programs - Change

Take memtest. Run for 4/5 passes
RAM - Test with Memtest86+

Run Disk Check for file system errors and bad sectors on it
Disk Check

Let us know the results

Did you replace an HDD with the SSD, or just add the SSD as the boot drive? Please take the time to fill in your system specs in the User CP. Knowing what hardware you have can be very helpful in troubleshooting

A> Replaced Kaspersky with Windows Essentials, notice speedy improvement (less lag on startup)
B> Startup displays nothing, only desktop.ini
C> Disk Checks display no errors. So no fix were applied.
D> Had not done mem test, but did before a few weeks back that displayed some sector errors, probably 1 or 2. .

Will keep update on progress, also specs are on the first post. Thanks.

OK. Do update the firmware for your SSD if you haven't already.
