Please update to the latest WHQL AMD graphics card driver, it seems to have used a NULL instruction pointer.

I've updated both my BIOS and AMD driver as you requested and I'm still unfortunately having the crashes.
I've had a single bluescreen since then as the rest are complete freezes (screen locks up requires hard reset, screen goes black as if PC has been turned off despite system remaining on requiring hard reset). I'll upload the bluescreen that occurred yesterday.

Two of the crashes today forced the sound in my headset to crackle whenever sound from anything was heard and forced all the applications I had opened to not respond and close themselves. Not sure if this is to do with the new changes I've made with the driver and BIOS updates.

BugCheck 4E, {99, 0, 0, 0}

Probably caused by : memory_corruption ( nt!MiBadShareCount+4c )
This bugcheck is caused by a corrupt PFN or PTE, as a result of a Bad Share Count, the Share Count is the number of PTEs which point to a physical page, Working Set Trimming will typically reduce the Share Count, as well as, the freeing of virtual memory.

I would run Driver Verifier again, and also test the RAM for any possible issues too:
Run Memtest86+ for least 9-10 passes, and preferably overnight as it can take a while to fully complete.

Test each RAM stick individually, if an error is found then move the same RAM stick into the next DIMM slot and test again, if errors are found for the same RAM stick in every available slot then you have a faulty RAM module. On the other hand, if no errors are found in the next slot or the other slots for the same RAM module, then you have a faulty DIMM slot.

Test each RAM stick and every motherboard DIMM slot available.

But if you have got a result like that:
It is a motherboard issue. The particular slot is bad.

Hey, I've ran the memtests once again, this time until 10 passes. The results turned out to be the same as my original test with the fourth piece proving faulty. I decided to terminate the test for the fourth piece during pass 5 when it was clear it was the piece of RAM and not the slots which showed 0 errors for the other 3 pieces.

I've tried to boot up the PC using a known working piece of ram in a tested slot, but I received the same freezes that have been bothering me for the past 3 weeks. I've yet to attempt driver verifier again because I don't occasionally receive blue screens and rather just hard locks or the screen shutting down with the computer remaining on. I'll be sure to attempt to use it sometime this week and try to run it for 24 hours to see if any problems are shown to me.

I just wanted to ask what are the chances of the HDD causing such freezes? I failed to mention before that I suffered from these problems with this PC 2 years ago and a technician told me it was a problem with my harddrive. I'm not sure what he did to fix the problem 2 years ago, but I've tried to reformat, delete etc without any luck. This is the same HDD I had when those problems occurred last time.

EDIT: 11/12/2013

After constant crashes I encountered three BSOD's over the past 2 days. Hopefully these will reveal more information about my problems like the previous one.

I apologise for again double posting, but it's been a week since I received my last bit of advice for my problem. Are there any other recommended procedures for me to figure out my problem?
