So customer had 2 regular drives. 1-boot and 1-storage. Added a SSD as the new boot drive. kept the old C: as more storage. After fresh install of Win 7, machine worked fine for hours. BSOD then fine for a while, bsod (too quick to see errors) Thought I had it fixed by resetting RAM and moving RAM slots. Worked 36 plus hours then bsod. Uploading zip files as requested.

There are no dump files.

Have you checked here?

C:\Windows\memory.dmp

The event viewer might find something regarding the crash events.

If you can find the bugcheck event, tell us the bucgheck code and its parameters.

Has the page file been altered?

 

It will be an error event under the name bugcheck.

Does the error still occur when you remove the SSD?

On the right hand side, you should be able to go to create custom view. Select error, then under event logs, go to Windows Logs then system.

Use that and scroll down until you find a bugcheck error, which should be there if the system has had a BSOD.

from customer...

I wasn't sure which cautions/errors were relevant.  Obviously critical seemed important to me.  I am worried it's ram.  Both blue screens came after I was slow to save changes in Illustrator.  I set up Autosavior yesterday which automatically saves my .ai files.  So I got distracted elsewhere (outside of Illustrator) and left unsaved files open.  Autosavior was trying to save when I got the blue screens.  I didn't have Autosavior set up until yesterday btw.  So the day before (38 hours) I was blue screen free and most that time didn't have that plugin (or whatever it is) running.  

 
Just a thought...I could be way off base.
 
Thanks!

It's tricky, in fact it's pretty much impossible to suggest any solution when I don't even know what the bugcheck is.

You could change the start and recovery settings to stop windows from rest

arting after it bugchecks.
