I've been having an ongoing issues with an error. It occurs randomly and has been doing it since I've build my PC about 3 months ago. Everything runs fine except for a error with a blue screen that will restart my PC. DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL (e22w8x64.sys). All of my drivers are up to date and I've tried a few others things.

Shouldn't a memtest be done before the ram is in use by windows for best results. Also, I have no cd drive on my PC, what would be the best way to do the test then?

Go to Memtest.org it will give you instructions to either make a bootable CD-ROM or USB drive. Memtest is something that you will boot to, or run BEFORE Windows is run.

I just finished running the memtest overnight, I had no errors. Is there anything else I could try?

You can try HDDtune to rule out the hard drive.

Try opening command prompt in administrator mode (Start>run> cmd> Shift+enter) the running "sfc /scannow" without the quotations.
This will start the system file check function. It may take a while to run, and you might have to insert your Windows Install CD if it finds any errors.

Just a thought but do you by chance have either an MSI or killer Ethernet?

Thats what it is. Try updating the NIC drivers and if that doesn't work follow this guide.

That would be the Killer Network Driver here: http://www.msi.com/product/mb/Z87G45_GAMING.html#downlo...
Correct? I am pretty sure that driver was up to date. I updated it again and will keep you informed, Thank You.
