Default Blue screen of death help!

So I've been having major issues with blue screens of death in the past few months. It started off on one or two games, (Battlefield mostly). And after following instructions on a forum it ended up being a blue screen every time I got 10 minutes into a game. After days of messing around we managed to "fix it" and get it back to a simple blue screen on certain games. This has made it difficult for me to get the most from my gaming rig, and after spending £40 on the new GTA5 it appears this game is one of the unforunate ones that has fallen prone to the BSOD. This is the final straw for me and any help would be MASSIVELY appreciated! Failing that, any advise on specialists or anything along the lines! I'll link the blue screen I got, but unfortunately no minidump file was recorded, making this even more difficult. It's a long shot but I'm all out of ideas and really just want a quick solution that will allow me to play the games I've bought!

Thanks a bunch guys,

Memory or HDD related.

Firstly, run a disk check on your HDD:

Start -> type 'cmd' (without quotes) -> right click -> run as admin -> in the console window that pops up type:
chkdsk C: /f /r
Press Enter and it will say it cannot lock the current drive and to run on next reboot. Type Y and hit Enter -> Reboot your computer and let it run through the check (it may take some time, depending on how big your HDD is).

If that doesn't help, run a memory test with Memtest86+ boot CD: Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool

I believe you're actually the guy who helped me the most on my last thread! I think we tried this last time too unfortunately!

Ah that's right...thought your username sounded familiar....

You said you had already bought a new set of RAM modules, right?

I did yes, and since, a lot of blue screens did stop. Now it's only on certain games, and they don't give minidumps either! And I'm not overly sure, here's the previous thread in case you want to recap at all! I really just want it sorted as quick as I can so I can play gta with my friends! Blue screen of death help!

I've got to the point now where I'm so bored of the blue screens I'm honestly considering just paying to have it repaired or to just wipe my hard drive and see if it works any better, it doesn't appear to be easily fixed over forums, especially since I'm no longer being provided with minidump files again, what would you guys suggest? Hang around here and try and find a fix or something else? Honestly just want it sorted quick so I can jump on with my friends whilst we have time off! The bsod has happened 4 times so far playing Gta5 and has been identical every time to the one I posted above.

You never posted the results from your first thread

After you run a disk check, the results flash by on the screen very fast just before your pc reboots, it's impossible to read the results like that, so you need to go Control Panel -> Administrative Tools -> Event Viewer -> Windows Logs -> Application -> Wininit.
You can copy the results by highlighting them and use your keyboard to copy (ctrl and C at the same time) and then open notepad and paste the results (ctrl and V) so you can read/post them here

There is a Date/Time column, which should help you find it. But it's easier to find right after you do a disk check. Have you done another disk check when carnageX suggested yesterday?
