Constant BSOD on Win7 PC after upgrade

  1. Hi everyone,

    I recently upgraded my PSU, cpu cooler and a new gtx460 gpu. I made sure to install all of these components correctly and after i put the rig back together and proceeded to boot into windows 7, I started getting alot of BSOD.

    The errors varied but a few consistent ones had references to win32k.sys. I have gone through troubleshooting steps in regards to heat, ram and also reinstalled windows but that did not help. The BSOD varied in time it took to happen, sometimes 10 minutes after bootup, sometimes 30 minutes.

    I have attached my 5 recent minidumps so I hope someone can interpret them and point me towards a remedy.

    Thanks for your time!

    All five errors are differing codes hich tells us from experience that corrupted memory is a strong possibility and in fact one of your files specifically cited this as the cause of your issues.

    What trouble shooting steps did you do for your RAM? Did you check if your RAM is properly seated? If you ran memtest, for how many Passes?
