    A fairly long time ago (7 months-ish) I started getting BSODs while playing games etc. I kept meaning to reformat and finally got around to it. I have yet to install anything manually apart from the first 4 Windows Updates and after which my computer still received a BSOD while I attempted to install the next 74 or so important updates.
    It's the been the annoying PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA with stop code 0x00000050. I will be happy to give out any additional information regarding this as it is needed. From the minidump it seems to have something to do with ntkrnlpa.exe and win32k.sys
    Thanks in advance.

    I thought I'd add that I have run memtest86 multiple times with 0 errors.

    could be a hardware fault other than memory, check your HDD and remove any un-nescacary hardware from your box for testing
