First off, Thanks for all the help you have unknowingly provided me using your site to troubleshoot. Appreciate what you guys do.

Ok so I bought a new system several weeks ago and it was Dead on Arrival, Faulty motherboard. Sent it back and the replaced the motherboard from a Asus M4A89GTD-Pro/USB3 to a Asus M5 A99x Evo.
2 days after I had it back it started randomly blue screening, I have had the following Bug check strings occur: System_Thread_Exception_ Not_Handled \ Pool_Corruption_in_File_Area \
IRQL_Not_Less_Or_Equal (this is the most common) \ Kmode_Exception_Not_Handled \ System_Service_Exception \ Unexpected_Kernel_Mode_Trap \ Driver_IRQL_Not_Less_Or_Equal & Page_Fault_In_Nonpaged_Area.

Bluescreenview lists ntoskrnl.exe in every crash but sometimes in the "Caused by driver" section it lists amdppm.sys \ ndis.sys Ntfs.sys and hal.dll but in all cases ntoskrnl.exe is second in the file name.

I had PowerISO installed and after reading it can be a issue I uninstalled it, I updated nearly every driver I could think of. I ran Memtest86 4.0a and it would freeze up after 1 and a half passes, After 3 tries I ran the other version on the .ISO which i believe was 3.86b and it ran 16 passes no errors, I also ran CHK DSK twice and neither time found anything. I am really at a loss as to what the issue is, I would send it back to the company I bought it from but have already spent over $400 in shipping the first time and really can't afford to keep sending it back.

Edit:Worked out how to attach .dmp files, they are in the post below :)

Not the most tech savvy but any questions \ information you require I can try find
Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

Update:
I have only been on my computer today to check my email (I had none so that could not be it) and Windows Update popped up showing 7 updates available to download:

Security Update for Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Service Pack 1 Redistributable Package

Security Update for Microsoft XML Core Services 4.0 Service Pack 2 for x64-based Systems

2x Update for Microsoft .NET Framework 4 on Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2 for x64-based Systems

Update for Microsoft XML Core Services 4.0 Service Pack 2 for x64-based Systems

Security Update for Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package

& Optional - Realtek - Network - Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller

I set these up to Download and went to bed, Upon coming back my PC appears to have BSOD again and I could not get passed the Windows password screen after many attempts, sometimes it crashed before it got to that.

I did a system restore to yesterday and Startup repair prompted me to to fix errors, I ran it and after about 10minutes got a error

Problem Event Name: StartupRepairOffline
Problem Signature 01: 6.1.7600.16385
Problem Signature 02: 6.1.7600.16385
Problem Signature 03: unknown
Problem Signature 04: 8
Problem Signature 05: AutoFailover
Problem Signature 06: 1
Problem Signature 07: 0x7f
OS Version: 6.1.7600.2.0.0.2561
Locale ID: 1033

I also worked out how to attach my .dmp apparently it has to be .zip not .rar so they are all there.

Edit: To further rule out RAM I used 1 stick last night and got the same BSOD then changed to the other stick and it happened again.

Further edit: I have reinstalled Windows 7 and the BSOD has happened again twice so far
