Unhappy Bluescreens... of death and destruction

i have been getting a lot of blue screens on my new machine.
i think they are caused by some drivers screwin up.
am i supposed to have 4 motherboard resources showing up under my system when i look in the device manager?
i also see 5 PCI standerd RAM controllers is this right?
also post any other reasons it might be because i dont want to be screwing around with the drivers unless im sure somethings wrong.

Blue screens are often caused by faulty RAM. Get Memtest86 and check to see if your RAM is alright.

r1y23,

Did you install your drivers 'manually' by going into 'add remove hardware' or 'device manager' section?
