I see I forgot to add the link to the tutorial in my previous post so here are the instructions again with the link to the tutorial.

 RAM TEST

Run MemTest86+ to analyse your RAM. MemTest86+ - Test RAM - Windows 7 Forums

Note   Note


MemTest86+ needs to be run for at least 8 passes for conclusive results. Set it running before you go to bed and leave it overnight. We're looking for zero errors here. Even a single error will indicate RAM failure.


You need to do 8 complete passes straight for conclusive results.
7 passes the first night and 1 pass the other night for example won't give conclusive results.

Haven't gotten any in the past 3 days after I cleaned some dust from inside the computer. Could overheating cause bluescreens?

Yes it can, because overheating causes hardware damage.

I guess that could've been my problem then unless I get another bluescreen anytime soon. Well thank you for your help (:
