Windows Vista Ultimate BSOD Help?

  1. Everytime I try to install a new OS on my hard drive I get a BSOD with the error:
    0x00000050 (0x0BFBEF000, 0x00000001, 0x8058762A, 0x00000002)

    At first I thought it was because my hard drive was corrupt or something so I bought another hard drive but I continue to get the same error.
    I've tried installing a new OS on both drives but both have the same error.
    Usually the error occurs right after I accept the terms of agreement on the installation of the new OS.
    I've also tried running Avira but I don't think it's a virus.
    I've been having this problem for a while now and It's gotten to the point where I need to flush my system and this isn't allowing me to.
    Any help is appreciated.

    hi SkeletoR1337

    You need to test your RAM. Download Memtest onto a CD from ... let it run overnight ... you're looking for a minimum of 7 passes on each stick ....

    After running the memtest I got 9 passes on the stick.
    Any suggestions on what I should do next? :/
