I've been having this problem on my custom built computer since this morning. This started when I received advice from ASRock tech support to reset my UEFI settings to default to fix an unrelated problem. I did that, and ever since then, my computer's stability has plummeted.
The computer was built a week ago from today. Here's my specs:
ASRock Fatal1ty 970 Performance motherboard
4x8gb Crucial DDR3-1600 RAM
EVGA Geforce GTX 950 Graphics Card
Segate 2tb HDD + 8gb SSD hybrid
Some cheap LG DVD writer
EVGA 500W 80+ bronze power supply
Windows 7 Professional 64-bit
Symptoms include frequent blue screens (with ever changing stop codes), occasional freezes (computer doesn't respond on the network and requires a forceful restart), and Chrome tabs crashing with the "Aw snap" error.
Here's some of the stop codes I've gotten from the blue screens. Not all of them though, since I've tried reinstalling Windows, and that obviously clears the event viewer.
0x00000050 (0xfffffa8310a67b2b, 0x0000000000000000, 0xfffff80002ac1fb5, 0x0000000000000005)
0x0000000a (0xfffffa83097d78b0, 0x0000000000000002, 0x0000000000000001, 0xfffff80002a7eead)
0x0000001a (0x0000000000041201, 0xfffff6813a135ae0, 0x8bf00006e61ad867, 0xfffffa801c798cd0)
0x00000109 (0xa3a039d8ab5a07b3, 0xb3b7465efdd6d789, 0xfffff80002c89000, 0x0000000000000001)
0x00000109 (0xa3a039d8ac33e9ac, 0xb3b7465efeb1b9fa, 0xfffff80002c0b510, 0x0000000000000000)
I've tried updating drivers, uninstalling and reinstalling video drivers, disabling video drivers, reinstalling Windows, and messing with UEFI settings. Nothing's worked.
Prime95 gets the CPU up to 62c, which is a tad hotter than I like, but it doesn't crash the system. Memtest86 shows 0 errors.
Video Memory stress Test (VMT.exe) shows many errors when doing a full scan. The odd thing is that it's not reliable. Sometimes it shows errors, sometimes it triggers a blue screen, sometimes it completes with nothing wrong. OCCT's gpu memtest feature, however, consistently shows 0 errors.
VMT showing errors, and the screen occasionally freezing, makes me think this is a video card problem. But OCCT showing 0 errors and benchmarks such as Heaven and Furmark running fine makes me think otherwise.

The only thing that seems to make the computer any sort of stable is putting it in safe mode. I'd try taking out the video card, but my motherboard doesn't have on board graphics.
Not sure what else to do here.

Will do. Should I create a new thread or continue this one?

I have to go to sleep. I went ahead and started a new thread just to be safe. http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/618189/various-and-frequent-blue-screens/


Thanks for the help.
