Windows 7: BSOD when new hardware added to computer

Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit
BSOD when new hardware added to computer

I recently had a GPU, CPU and RAM replaced out of this computer.
It is now using integrated GPU, a less heat-intensive, less GHz cpu, and some better quality ram. The parts have been sold because they were not needed.
About the RAM, I have 2 sticks of OCZ gold series ddr3 ram. They are both 4gb.
One of the sticks of RAM gives me the BSOD when inside my computer. However, Memtest passes the RAM...?
Anyways, does anyone have any suggestions?

Unfortunately the installation is non-genuine.
The Key is that of a Lenovo OEM computer - and the motherboard is a retail one by HP.

There is no point analysing a counterfeit installation, the best course of action is to:
  • Purchase a legitimate Windows 7 licence.
  • Format the HDD.
  • Reinstall Windows and activate.
The only thing I can say is remove the stick of RAM causing the BSOD.
