Default Blue screen of death, hardware failure possible?

It started a few days ago with Stop Error IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL (0xA) errors, now I get all kinds of error messages with the blue screen of death. I reformatted because someone suggested that I had bad drivers and I am still getting the errors, so it must be some type of hardware failure. Anyone have any ideas what it could be?

Memtest86 +

Google it, Download, Burn ISO to disk, boot of disk, run test for at least 4 hours.

Report amount of errors.

If its alot of errors its probably bad memory, therefore replace it.

last comp i had that gave me BSOD i just literally threw out the window, didnt bother trying to fix, however, it was a 133mhz computer about 2 months ago, rofl, so would have cost maybe... $5?

92% of teenagers have put some stupid made up statistic in their signature. If you're one of the 8% that aren't quite as gulliable, copy this.
