PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA and driver-irql-not-less-or-equal

I had PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA as i turned my pc on.
Then I rebooted and it ran for about 3 mins and crashed with error driver-irql-not-less-or-equal. I also noticed that it took like 4 mins too boot up.
I tried to power on again but no luck. I had the ram light on on my mobo so i removed ram stick #2 and it powered on slowly. When it turned on it said overclocking failed on the bios. I dont have any overclocked items on the pc. Its been like 10 mins and it hasn't crashed.

Specs: CPU: Intel Core i5 - 3570k
Memory: Cosair vengence 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 1600
HDD: Western Digital Black 1TB 7200 RPM SATA 6gb
MOBO: Asus Sabertooth Z77
Power Supply: Corsair TX750w
GPU: crappy old 3870 gpu im borrowing until mine arrives in mail. Could this be it?

  1. Test the RAM. Good way to test it is using Memtest86. I had a similar issue and it turned out to be both a bad RAM stick and the slot on the motherboard.
