  1. After trying many times to make sense of the overloading amount of information that bluescreenviewer gave me I got a headache and gave up.

    When I boot my pc IF I move the mouse during or a few seconds after the desktop loads it BSODS, this has also occurred a couple of times while watching flash videos. This sounded like a problem with the graphics card to me but every reference to this problem points to the RAM.

    Thoughts? (MiniDumps Below)

    Ok so I ran memtest and received an error so I sent back the ram and recieved an advanced replacement (What service!) However after about 3 days the damn bsod returned again, identical to the previous ones. Now I have no clue what the problem is.

    Did Memtest86 run clean this time? AMD_SATA.Sys is an AHCI 1.2 Device Driver. This is pat of your motherboards device drivers or Chipset drivers

    I ran memtest again and there were no errors after 10 passes

    Is the device manager free of yellow (!)?
