Random BSODs. Page fault in non paged area. ntoskrnl.exe+f11e4

Facing a very weird issue lately. Random BSODs at very odd times. Specs are in "My Specs". Sometimes it occurs 5 mins after logging in sometimes after 12 straight hours of usage. occurs mostly when pc is idle or doing minimal work i.e browsing e.t.c. works fine during heavy gaming etc. Can't say that it won't crash during gaming as i don't know the root of the problem but it hasn't crashed in game so far during 4,5 hour sessions of gaming. it happened a week ago i changed ram slots and it seemed to disappear but now has resurfaced again and doesn't seem to go away. doesn't happen in safe mode. once happened on log on screen when i just waited to see if the problem is with any of the installed applications. here is what I have done to solve the issue but hasn't been successful so far.

1. cleaned dust from pc especially ram slots.
2. changed ram slots, checked both rams separately in both slots still BSOD.
3. problem occurred after a few days i updated GPU drivers so I though it might be them uninstalled them and did a clean installation of old drivers still issue remains.
4. Did a clean fresh installation of windows. seemed to work fine for a couple of hours i installed some stuff drivers browsers, daemon tools, utorrent steam etc. shutdown pc, turned on after a couple of hours and again BSOD loop (sometimes it seems like a loop i.e consistent BSODs sometimes starts working fine and happens after good 12-24 hours).
5. Googled the hell out of the problem. microsoft says it might be faulty ram. forums say software or driver conflicts. haven't installed any new hardware recently . system working fine for almost 1.5 years now with the same configuration.
6. checked all cables etc nothing loose. temps are fine too, irrelevant as doesn't happen during load.

Now at my wit's end. can't really figure out what is going on. BSOD error is always BCCode 50. Page fault in non paged area. file crashing is ntoskrnl.exe. sometimes there are other files but mostly its this one. i will attach the mini dump files in a while. any help would be appreciated thanks.

    I'd be interested to hear how, this is driving me up the wall.
  4. alright do a complete OS installation first and don't install anything at all after that. you have to be patient just to see what is the thing that is causing crashes. if your problem is exact same as mine then just be patient with the programs installation after the OS installation. keeping it running vanilla for a while. also explain your problem in detail. it would also help.
