I have +- 5yrs old pc runnig windows 7 and I've been getting blue screen recently.

I had win 8 and I got a lof of erros with ram memory, so I reinstalled back to Win 7. (I have 2x 2 GB RAM)

To make a better image of my errors - I get them while writing email, installing nvidia driver, sound driver, running RAM test.

I got a log of my last error, could anyone tell me what is it? Should I get new RAM memories?

The last log I got:

it can be anything failing HDD or even a virus or driver i think it's better to test everything –  idavid Jun 25 '13 at 13:36
    
The contents of the 062513-16156-01.dmp file will tell you wonders. –  Ramhound Jun 25 '13 at 14:12
    
@idavid it happens on every clean reinstalation, so it shouldn't be a virus. –  Lostman Jun 25 '13 at 16:30
    
@Ramhound how do I check the file? I'll try. Thanks –  Lostman Jun 25 '13 at 16:31

It's generally easier to rule out causes than to rule them in.

Use MemTest86+ to test your RAM. I seem to remember that the conventional wisdom is that you should let it run for 6 to 8 full passes with no errors before you declare it "good RAM". (The test could run indefinitely I think, if you let it.

If that doesn't fix it, you might try disconnecting all peripherals, booting into SAFE mode and then doing a ChkDsk /f and then restarting into regular mode. If that comes up OK, then try reconnecting your peripherals. I have a similar problem. Wasn't the RAM. Doing this Safe mode without peripherals fixes it.

It's worth noting that bad motherboard can give false positives in RAM tests. If you see RAM errors, test the same memories on other PC. –  gronostaj Jun 25 '13 at 13:43

@user233605 - Are you sure you are getting a Windows BSOD while running Memtestx86? –  Ramhound Jun 25 '13 at 16:12
    
@Ramhound I got the last error when I stopped memtest. This one tinypic.com/r/2rf78fb/5 –  Lostman Jun 25 '13 at 16:21
    
@Lostman - Can you give me a direct like to the image itself so I can add it to your question. I have Tinypic on my blocked listed of domains. –  Ramhound Jun 25 '13 at 16:26
