RAM is your problem, run memtest86 to confirm this, then take out all but one stick at a time and perform memtest

I've come across this problem numerous times in the past (I build and troubleshoot PCs for a living), and it has always been the RAM. Windows will never report a problem with the RAM since it errors thus will show it as a stop error. I'll wager 10 bucks memtest will error
