Windows 7: Random BSoD's 0x000000ea and 0x000000c2

Random BSoD's 0x000000ea and 0x000000c2


1 and a half year ago i built a new PC, it's been working fine until January.
Then i got a BSoD with error code 0x000000ea, i updated drivers,
deleted virusses etc... Didn't help, so i decided to completely clean out my pc, that helped, until some months later, however then it suddenly stopped again, then i reinstalled windows because of incredibly slow start-up and loading times (which may or may not be related to this, no idea), after that i got a BSoD again, i reseated my GPU which again, helped for 2 months, then i did the same, and haven't had that error since, however today i got this error 0x000000c2, and i don't really know what to do with this, as it appears to be random, i know 0x000000ea is a graphics driver, but my GPU functions perfectly normal except once in a while when it does this, might it be RAM? My specs:
AMD Phenom II 965 BE 3.4 Ghz
XFX Radeon HD 7850
8 GB Corsair Vengeance RAM
650 watt m1211 seasonic 80+ bronze PSU
1 TB WD purple HDD
Gigabyte 990FXA UD3 AM3+ Mobo.

The bsoddump.rar contains 2 dump files.

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.

If it does not show any error, enable Driver Verifier to monitor the drivers.
Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable
Run Driver Verifier for 24 hours or the occurrence of the next crash, whichever is earlier.

information   Information
Why Driver Verifier:
It puts a stress on the drivers, ans so it makes the unstable drivers crash. Hopefully the driver that crashes is recorded in the memory dump.

How Can we know that DV is enabled:
It will make the system bit of slow, laggy.

warning   Warning
Before enabling DV, make it sure that you have earlier System restore points made in your computer. You can check it easily by using CCleaner looking at Tools > System Restore.

If there is no points, make a System Restore Point manually before enabling DV.

Tip   Tip

Let us know the results, with the subsequent crash dumps, if any.

I already did a RAM test earlier, also memtest86+, it gave me several errors but still managed to complete the passes, as for the driver verifier, i will do that, thank you.

It showed errors?

A single error is enough to rule out the RAM as failing. And in that case that is the source of the issue. Nothing else is required.

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.

Let us know the situation.
