    MOBO: ASUS P8Z68-V PRO LGA 1155 Intel Z68
    MEMORY: CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800)
    GPU: EVGA SuperClocked GTX 580.
    HDD: Vegance 500 gb 7600 rpm

    Windows Vista 64.

    i built my system 2 months ago, every part is new.
    so here's my problem, i played it fine for the first month, no problem no crashing.
    One day i came home turn on my pc, and i had a LED mobo light turned on, it was the Memory LED, so i went online i i guess i had to click the led until it flashes, then the MOBO read the memory again. since then i been having BLUE SCREENS, , " MEMORY CORRUPTED" "MEMORY MANAGER"

    IRQL_GT_ZERO_ AT_ SYSTEM_SERVICE
    STOP: 0X0000004A (0X00000000075783D09, etc....


    then i got another one.
    STOP: C000021A {FATAL SYSTEM ERROR}
    0X00000000 (0XC0000428 0X00100528)

    I get different error codes most of the time,

    i was thinking i will b my memory, but windows reads it fine, and this only happens when im playing a game, the game runs for 2 mins and bang i get blue screen,

    so yeah i tried everything, memory tool, windows didn't found any error, my cpu temp is 40c, i have an antec 900 with 5 fans, so i don't think is overheating problems,

    Also, i uninstalled my old GPU drivers, and installed a new ones, and when i did that i could play teh game for 7 mins, but i got blue screen again,

    so last night i decided to install Windows again, i was thinking is probably a corrupted driver or file in windows.

    can u guys help me plz. thanx

    Remove 1 4GB stick of memory and try playing a game. If you still get BSOD's swap the memory modules and try playing again. If you get no BSOD's using 1 memory module you will know what module is bad. The computer will run okay with just 4GB temporarily...
