Windows 7: My new system keeps crashing

My new system keeps crashing

A week ago I built myself a new computer. Everything seemed to go well, all the parts are new except the case, hard drive and dvd drive. The first install of windows I did, I didn't reformat correctly and it placed all my old files in a folder. This folder was huge, and seeing as I had just installed windows and not much else, I decided to reformat again, this time erasing everything first.

Now, I keep getting the Blue 'Memory dump' screen. It happens after Windows starts up, but before I get to the log-in screen. Any restarts after that will only take me to the system repair screen (even if i pick safe mode), where it tells me it cannot repair my computer and gives me a few lines explaining the errors.

Problem Event Name: StartupRepairOffline
Problem Signature 01: 6.1.7600.16385
Problem Signature 02: 6.1.7600.16385
Problem Signature 03: unknown
Problem Signature 04: -1
Problem Signature 05: AutoFailover
Problem Signature 06: 7
Problem Signature 07: CorruptRegistry

So I assume my something is corrupting my startup registry over and over again. Once this happens I have no choice but to reformat. I can make it work for a few hours, but the next day I boot it up and get the blue screen again. I can't get to the memory dump files, I know that would make things easier.

Here is what I have done to try to resolve this:
-One stick of memory seems to work ok, 2 sticks causes a crash. I changed my bios settings: QPI voltage to 1.25, Memory voltage to 1.5, and System Enhance down to Standard. This worked for a whole 5 hours or so, but the next day I had a blue screen. (I found this Here)
-Swapped the 2 memory sticks around on the motherboard (they are in the correct white slots, I tried the blue ones, still crashes - also typically works with one stick of RAM no matter which one it is or which slot it is in)
-Ran memorytest86 last night, 9 passes, 0 errors.
-Memory dump errors are always different, if can look one up, reformat, change a setting and get a different one the next time. I have had to reformat at least once a day over the past week.
-Also as a note, this system has not gone for more than 24 hours without a crash, maybe not even that long.

This is my hardware:

Motherboard: Gigabyte P55M-UD2 rev 1.1
Processor: Intel i5 - 750
Memory: G-Skill 4Gb (2x2Gb) DDR3 4GBNQ
GPU: Sapphire Radeon HD 4670
Hard drive: (6 years old but still worked fine in old system) Maxtor Diamondmax 10 120Gb
Power Supply: OCZ 600W
6 year old DVD drive

Tonight my plans are to install a different old hard drive that is running as a second drive in another computer. Any thoughts/ideas would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks!

Since you are doing a complete install... when you get to the installer's partitioning screen click the extra options button and delete all partitions and re-create them.
Then proceed with your install...

Yeah, that is what I did on the second install. I just missed the setting the first time around. Also, every install since then I have wiped the drive clean first.

Have you tried installing Ubuntu and testing the system with that? There might be hardware failures and if the same thing happens with Ubuntu, then you can focus on the hardware.

If everything was working fine until you installed 7 then it is probably either a hardware failure due to drivers or BIOS or a power failure in the new PSU.

I have not ran Ubuntu yet, I might have my husband install that first tonight. I would think it has to be a hardware issue, I've had this power supply for about 3 months and didn't have any troubles in the old system, but I'm sure that system required less power as well.

The latest STOP error I have gotten wasSTOP 0x00000024. It looks like that is a hard drive error? I have checked all connections, it is properly plugged in and powered, so it could be failing...

Also, I seem to remember getting these in the past:
STOP 0XC00000221
STOP 0x0000001E
STOP: c000021a


All seem to point to a hardware issue.

So I installed a new hard drive and it seemed to be working ok for a couple days, then today I got another blue screen. Here is the debugging info:

I did not have to reformat this time, so i guess its a step in the right direction... I would like to get this solved though :/ Thanks for all the help so far!
