    I had that problem once and I later found out my RAM was fine, but that the nVidia drivers on my system were the cause.

    Uninstall your graphics card drivers and use the generic Windows ones and reboot. If you're still getting the BSOD, then it's likely not your graphics drivers.

      thanks acreo but i think i may have found the problem.
      my system was over heating. think its time to upgrade the case and get some more airflow into it.

        Which component was overheating? CPU? GPU? If a specific component is overheating, rather overall system overheat, then you'd want to invest in a better cooler (if the cooler is dust free) instead. Changing a case may not improve your situation if that one component is causing the BSOD due to high temps.

        Also, you could look at getting fans for your case (intake through the front, exhaust through the top+side+back (if you have a top and back vent). You'll need to reroute your cables and tie them together so they don't block airflow. Ideally, you'll want them routed under the motherboard tray (if you can).

          those all sound like good ideas, except i have a slim line case, so there is almost no room for anything to be added. except new memory and hdd's,

            Some MB have issues with certain RAM speeds. I don't fully understand the details, but I had some DDR2 800mhz that just wouldn't work with my MB - It would keep BSOD like you describe above. I took it back to my local store (Great family owned, low prices) and they allowed me to switch out the ram for a different kind which my MB didn't reject. From what I read my motherboard is crap... hah.

            Posting details may help. I don't see new or additional RAM modules causing your system to overheat - beyond what it was at before.
