I did however update the bios;which, I did not before the reformat. Could this have anything to do with the BSOD before? Is there anymore information I could give you guys that could possibly help you determine what the problem is with the computer or what I am installing on this thing to make it mess up? I havent had a BSOD yet, but I haven't installed a virus protection yet. I am thinking about going to with Norton Antivirus instead of Bit defender this time. I used to get compatibility problem with bit defender, idk what this problem could be.

I have put together computers with my friend before and never have I had a BSOD...what is the deal!!!
Hello,

To be honest with you i never seen Windows Memory Diagnostic finding problem. If you have a Hardcore problem maybe then it might pick it up. I always trust MemTest86+. Maybe the BIOS Update took care of the problem. Maybe it had some issues with timimng in RAM whic got fixed by updating the BIOS.

Norton or Bitdefender is bad idea. Go for Microsoft Security Essentials or Avast.

Good Luck,
Captain

The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck. The bugcheck was: 0x0000007e (0xffffffffc0000005, 0xfffff80002b7a726, 0xfffff880031c4968, 0xfffff880031c41d0). A dump was saved in: C:\Windows\MEMORY.DMP. Report Id: 072710-22042-01.

Puffins, please upload the mini dump. If fact, read the link below and follow those instructions. Since you reinstalled Windows, I have to believe you have a hardware/hardware related problem.

Please upload that dmp file, found in C:\Windows to ***************.

Right-click on it, and send to>new compressed folder, and then upload that file.

first the (0x...c0000005) is a memory exception, so I still expect memory is the problem.

we need the DMP to be sure
We really need the actual DMP file.

If you wish to have others assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder. The procedure:

* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Start your own thread in the "Crashes and Debugging" section of the forum and attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.
* Briefly describe the problem history and circumstances in the same post. Somebody will attend to your query as soon as possible.

Since it still appears to be memory I would
Download a copy of Memtest86 and burn the ISO to a CD using Iso Recorder or another ISO burning program. Boot from the CD, and leave it running for at least 5 or 6 passes.

I too think it's a Memory. As we recommend before use MemTest86+ don't use Windows Memory Test
