This problem has been steadily getting worse. First games would crash, usually preceded by the sound cutting out and then crashing to desktop a few minutes later. I also get frequent BSODs, the latest minidump is attached.
Suspecting a video card issue(RADEON HD 7700), I updated video drivers, tried using my integrated graphics, and updated every other driver I could think of.
I took every stick of RAM out save one (was using 4 2GB sticks) and the issues stopped. I bought 2 new 4GB sticks compatible with my mobo and they are back with a vengeance. Dropping to 1 4GB stick does not help. Its all DD3 1333, and the BIOS is set to use that speed.
I also replaced my PSU for good measure (it was old anyway). My computer has great difficulty booting as well, a red LED comes on and it has to restart itself multiple times before it actually turns on.
What the heck is going on? I suspected a RAM issue, but with new ram and a motherboard that is only 4 months old I can't imagine whats going on. Most people with this issue seem to have a driver or RAM problem, but I can't figure out what to do.
