BSOD - Random Usage - multiple error codes - 0x0000003b

I've attached the zip file of dumps from BSOD.

This is on my sisters computers which I can only access remotely.

Specs as follows:
Rosewill R363-M Case with PSU
Biostar A75MG FM1 Mobo
AMD A6-3500 Llano CPU
Partiot Gamer 2 Series 8GB (2x4GB)
OCZ Vertex Pus R2 60GB SSD
Windows 7 x64 with SP1 installed

Any help is appreciated.

Start with testing RAM.

Take memtest. Run for 8 passes and test each stick in a know good slot for an additional 6 passes.
The goal is to test all the RAM sticks and all the motherboard slots.

Check your motherboard manual to ensure the RAM sticks are in the recommended motherboard slots. Some motherboards have very specific slots required for the number of RAM sticks installed.

If you get errors, stop the test and continue with the next step.

1. Remove all but one stick of RAM from your computer (this will be RAM stick #1), and run Memtest86 again, for 7 passes.
*Be sure to note the RAM stick, use a piece of tape with a number, and note the motherboard slot.
If this stick passes the test then go to step #3.

2. If RAM stick #1 has errors, repeat the test with RAM stick #2 in the same motherboard slot.
*If RAM stick #2 passes, this indicates that RAM stick #1 may be bad. If you want to be absolutely sure, re-test RAM stick #1 in another known good slot.
*If RAM stick #2 has errors, this indicates another possible bad RAM stick, a possible motherboard slot failure or inadequate settings.
3. Test the next stick of RAM (stick #2) in the next motherboard slot.
*If this RAM stick has errors repeat step #2 using a known good stick if possible, or another stick.
*If this RAM stick has no errors and both sticks failed in slot#1, test RAM stick #1 in this slot.
4. If you find a stick that passes the test, test it in all the other motherboard slots.

If Part 2 testing shows errors, and all tests in Part 3 show errors, you will need to test the RAM sticks in another computer and/or test other RAM in your computer to identify the problem.

In this way, you can identify whether it is a bad stick of RAM, a bad motherboard, or incompatibility between the sticks.

Errors are sometimes found after 8 passes.

Do this test overnight, before going to bed.

I appreciate the help. Like I said I can only access remotely. I will see if I can convince my sister to do this or just bring the computer when she visits.

Does it appear to be a memory issue? I ran the computer for a little when I had it prior to giving it to her and did not run into this problems that she is having. Maybe a module came lose in shipping.

Well yup.

See usual causes for the bug checks.

Usual causes: Device driver, memory, kernel

Usual causes: Device driver

Usual causes: System service, Device driver, graphics driver, memory

Usual causes: Defective hardware (particularly memory - but not just RAM), Faulty system service, Antivirus, Device driver, NTFS corruption, BIOS
Since memory is common, we can start with testing RAM first.
