I think perhaps your crashes may be due to faulty memory.

Run this to stress the memory and test. MemTest for Windows Download Page

You could probably do that from safe mode.

It is best to wait for another opinion on this. Hopefully another member with more experience analyzing crash dumps will tell you something clearer or more accurate, or just straight out correct my analysis.

Please tell us was this an upgrade or clean install?

Good luck.

This is getting rediculous............... I am tempted to just go ahead and go back to xp. Oh yeah that memory stress test, going to try that as soon as I wake up a little more.

"Currently the computer wont even get to desktop from boot without BSOD" - crashes seem to happen while inside Windows for a while or even before - so it's not a reproducible error that happens exact same time upon a boot, every time....like as when a driver is accessed to memory.

"Ok tried to run the memory stress test and the comp froze at 4% of the ram test" I can imagine that if some other hardware besides RAM was faulty, it could produce this result as well - faulty RAM itself though is my greatest thought.

There are explorer.exe crashes and svchost.exe crashes.

Are you comfortable opening your machine?
Please give me as much information about your memory (RAM) that you have.
I'll try to help see if we can pull a memory stick or two out the machine which has a decent chance of alleviating crashes. In not, swap what you took out with what you left in an test. If not, completely replace memory.

At this point, it's an educated guess on my behalf that your RAM is casuing problems. It's only a guess.
