Over the past month or so I have been having issues with BSOD

I was told by a friend to try running a mem test, which I passed.
I was then told to just a format and fresh install to see if that might help it, I proceeded to do this and it helped for a week or so then the problem came back.
I have since made sure all my drivers are up to date, bought a new motherboard (kept them at bay for 2 weeks roughly), bought new RAM at the beginning of the year and also a new graphics card.

I play online games quite a lot and was due a few upgrades anyways but none of these seemed to make a difference!
I'm completely fed up and honestly have no clue as to what I should do to sort it now, I've bought new RAM today to replace my two oldest to see if that may help, however I doubt it.

Please help! :(


P.s. I have also come to have screen freezes, and the occasional restart

BSOD messages include;
System service exception
Driver IRQL not less than equal
Memory management

No message is also common

I would post my minidump however despite changing the settings they still do not appear in the folder, im getting these crashes within 5-15 mins of each other today and its severely annoying

I have tried the tutorial to enable small memory dumps but it still doesn't work. And the memtest was that exact one

I have ran the Offline Defender and found these as potential threats during the scanning. I have since removed them and waiting to see if it has made a difference.

HackTool:Win32/Keygen
HackTool:Win32/Wpakill.C
Adware:Win32/Hotbar

(i'll post image when the internal server error passes)

You might have gotten to the problem, those viruses. I would strongly suggest that you install Microsoft Anti-virus. http://windows.microsoft.com/en-GB/windows/products/security-essentials
It is free and does not cause problems as the others do. If you are using some other anti-virus, you will need to uninstall it first.

Are you sure that there is nothing in c:\windows\minidump

Let us know how you are going, please.

Despite removing these viruses it did not stop the Bluescreens, I have since removed 3/4 of my sticks of RAM and left one in and it is currently working perfectly since.

Called back ebuyer to say the ones I had were by the looks of it faulty and will be sending them back and getting a replacement

Yes the RAM is on the supported list for this one and my old one. It was working fine until 2 months ago roughly. Then i started getting the occasional bluescreen or the complete screen freeze and its since gotten worse and worse.

I'll see how the new RAM fares

Did you try each of the RAM stick in slot 1 of the motherboard to make sure it wasn't the motherboard at fault?

Also do you have the latest BIOS?
