BSOD when turning off/restarting windows

  1. Hello everyone, here's my first post:

    I have recently changed my memory stick because of frequent random restarts. Ran memtest and found several errors.

    Now the system runs almost fine, except for one thing: Whenever I restart or turn off the computer, about 1 in 4 times, I get a BSOD (Page Fault in Non Paged Area). This happens soon after then "saving settings" message appear.

    After the system is restarted, I click on Start->Shut Down, and the system is shut down completely. It looks like the problem has more chances of happening after I power on the computer and use it for a while. If I just use it for a few minutes, I can shut it down with no problems.

    Here's my minidump:

    Finished dump check
    Since it mentions several audio-related drivers, I thought the problem could be solved by updating audio/lan/chipset/sata drivers, but the problem persists.

    Memtest86 reports no errors.

    One interesting thing is that, whenever I use "chkdsk /F", it reports a few errors, fixes these errors and reboots. After the system is rebooted, I use chkdsk again, and it reports more errors.

    Since I have changed the mem stick, is it possible for my motherboard or cpu to be faulty?

    Here's my system specs:
    Core 2 Duo E6300
    1stick of 1GB Corsair RAM 667mhz (default timings)
    Abit AB9 (onboard LAN/audio)
    XFX GeForce 7300GT
    Western Digital 250GB HD

    Please help, and sorry for the long post.
