Hi everyone,

So for a little over a week now I've been having frequent issues with my pc, first let me list the specs of my machine...

CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E8500 3.16Ghz
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3P(rev. 1.1)
RAM: Corsair Dominator 4GB(2x2GB) DDR2 1066MHz PC2-8500 C5
GPU: XFX Nvidia GeForce GTS 250
HDD: Segate Barracuda 500GB ATA
PSU: Corsair TX750 watt power supply
OS: Windows 7 Professional 64-Bit

Some of the problems I've been having include several BSOD'S...
IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL 0x0000000A (At least twice)
MEMORY MANAGEMENT 0x0000001A (At least twice)
PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA 0x00000050
PFN_LIST_CORRUPT 0x0000004E
SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED 0x1000007E

As well as constant crashes from World of Warcraft due to (ACCESS_VIOLATION) not being able to write memory.

I've run Memtest86+ several times, sometimes it can run for 8 hours with no problems and other times in less than a minute it will have 20,000 errors.

I suspect the memory is the problem and i will probably RMA it tomorrow since it has a life time warranty even though i don't want to because i just had to do an RMA on the memory a few months ago.

Any tips, ideas, programs i could run to see if its other hardware failing, anything would be greatly appreciated.

First off I don't think after replacing your ram that it would once again be your ram again if it's the proper ram in the proper slots. It is almost impossible for us to pin point the problem but I will give you some ideas. If you are overclocked, put it back to default and try it again. Watch you temps. when gaming, it will let you know if for whatever reason if your getting hot. Your ram test passing some times or not passing other times leads me to think motherboard. You have a quality brand power supply with enough power if working correctly. Make sure your drivers for your video card are up to date.
Hang in their others will be by to help. What case and cooling are you using??

If memtest is reporting errors you have your answer. Replace the ram.

Some of the problems I've been having include several BSOD'S...

IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL 0x0000000A (At least twice) - Usually a driver issue

MEMORY MANAGEMENT 0x0000001A (At least twice) - Page file corrupt ?

PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA 0x00000050
PFN_LIST_CORRUPT 0x0000004E
SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED 0x1000007E

Access Violations are usually not RAM but Ram access collisions, in other
words, you have a piece of software that is occupying a hex address in memory that wow tries
to access and fails.
