    Hey, I have recently been getting BSODs randomly. At first I thought it was due to my Western Digital HDD going faulty but after buying a new 3.5" SATA and removing the Western Digital one, I am still getting BSODs. Please help me figure out what is the cause of the BSOD, thankyou in advance.

    This is the crash log and PC specs, let me know if any extra info is required.

    Memory Testing (including bootable CD's and floppies):

    MemScope (Floppy and CD images.)
    Roadkil's RAM Test
    Microsoft Memory Test (floppy or CD ISO image)

    If you have enough memory sticks, you can test them by removing one at a time and see if the problem disappears.

    If you are running Vista or 7, tap F8 on boot and choose the memory diagnostic, or if you can boot up, go to Start > Search and type:


    Choose to run a memory diagnostic on next boot. Or, you can boot from the DVD and run it from there.

    Thanks for the speedy reply :)
    I ran memtest86 and it said that it passed with no errors and to press ESC to exit.
    Will run the memory diagnostic now, do you think its a problem with the RAM?

    Heres the results of the Windows Memory Diagnostic,
