Still the display is failing there.

Test your RAM modules for possible errors.
How to Test and Diagnose RAM Issues with Memtest86+
Run memtest for at least 8 passes, preferably overnight.

If it start showing errors/red lines, stop testing. A single error is enough to determine that something is going bad there.Still it is a display related issue.

Stress test the Graphics Card using Furmark.

Is the computer hot? Report us the heat of the computer after a couple of hours of your normal usage. Upload a screenshot of the summery tab of Speccy.

Are you overclocking? As you are getting BSODs, you should stop overclocking and run all the hardware components like CPU, GPU and RAM to their default settings. Also set the BIOS to default, too.

Now follow the "Part 3: If You Have Errors:" of How to Test and Diagnose RAM Issues with Memtest86+

Errors/red lines means one or more RAM is faulty. But the fault may occur due to a faulty DIMM slot, too, which is a motherboard component. Using memtest86+, you can discriminate between a faulty RAM and a faulty motherboard.

How? Say you have two RAM sticks and two DIMM slots. You obtained errors at the test with all RAM sticks installed. Now, remove all the sticks but one. Test it in all the available slots, one by one. Continue the same procedure for all the available sticks.
How to make the inference that is it a RAM issue or it is a motherboard issue? Suppose you have got the result like that:

It is a RAM, a bad RAM.

But if you have got a result like that:

It is a motherboard issue. The particular slot is bad.

thanks for the help, i am still diagnosing, and what do i do if it is a bad slot? would i have to get a whole new motherboard? and if it is a bad ram, do i just have to get a new ram stick?

If it is bad RAM, change it.

If it is a bad DIMM slot, better not use that slot.

so it turns out that one of the ram sticks was bad, so i have removed it and replaced it with the good ram stick, leaving me with half the ram as before, and now my computer wont boot up, it wont even go to the screen that says starting windows, or if it makes it there, it will display the words, starting windows, without the words and it will stay there.

if it does not make it that far, it displays a completely black screen saying:

MBR Error 3

A disk read error occurred
Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart

Furthermore, if my computer decides to display the windows error recovery window, i can select to launch windows normally, which yields the starting windows screen with just the text and no logo and it freezes; or if i select the recovery option, it goes to what appears to be the ancient windows XP start up window, without the logo and proceeds to freeze there.

idk if this is relevant or not, but i have gone through the process of selecting the hard drive to boot from as well. i have now idea what to do...

Make it sure that all the RAM sticks are properly places, and clips are closed, too. Also make it sure that the HDDs are properly plugged. Check the SATA/power cables at both the ends.

If all is proper there, Follow it:
