A 0x7 means either memory problems, or serious system problems.
Since you have indicated some memory problems, I suggest to run MemTest86+
Please read the instructions carefully.

BSOD after power cut 0x00000074 Diagnostic Test BSOD after power cut 0x00000074

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.
