If it is not reoccuring, ignore it, if it reoccurs often, google, download, burn and run for a minimum of four of memtest86+ with your memory at it's purchased speed, timmings abd voltage.

Also, update all drivers, update windows, check if BIOS is up to date and make sure all you have no malware or other malicious code running.

everything's updated, i think its catalyst drivers.

Could undervolted memory possibly cause blue screens?\


on top of that it takes a good 6-7 minutes to load.....

Could, yes..

Do the memtest thing and if it passes with zero errors over four hours, download HDD health and post a screen shot of the data table.
