    Right, so I tested all four of my RAM sticks separately and only one of them ever gave an error, so I suppose I'll need to get a new one to replace it. I took out the corrupted stick and am now running on just the three, but my memory usage and disk usage seem kinda of high without it, should I keep it out or should I still use it until I can replace it?

    edit: Nvm, I was stupid and forgot to read my motherboard's compatibility for the RAM sticks; ie. it doesn't support using just 3, so I put back in the fourth one and my take out two later.

    If you find a stick of RAM is failing, it is good that the DIMM slot is not causing the issue. The motherboard is good.

    When you decide to change the RAM, dont replace a single stick but replace the KIT. Always use the RAM came in a single KIT; those are tested to work together.

    Yep, I was planning on just buying a new four set. I'll order them, switch them out, and hope that fixes the problem. Thank you for the help thus far.

    Ok, so it has been two weeks since I have installed the new RAM and I have not experienced any more BSODs; I am also now going to start using my original keyboard to see how that does. But with nothing else I would say my issues have been solved, thank you once again for the help.
