hi... a while back i build a pc with which i had some problems with it not starting because of the memory... i solved it with getting a new motherboard since i couldn't return the memory anymore ;) 

but some problems remain... after the pc was off for some days it always starts with a bsod on the first start... after rebooting (sometimes a few times) it works fine though...

this is the setup:
MSI 770-c45
AMD Athlon II X4 630
Cougar Power 400W ATX 2.3
4GB-Kit DDR3-RAM PC1600 CL9 A-DATA XPG G Series
HIS HD 5750
Samsung HD502IJ

this is what windows says after reboot:

Looks like a memory problem if your BSoDing as intermittently as that.

Things to do:

Download Memtest and run a number of passes on your RAM (20-30). If it throws an error then your ram is at fault.

Only have 1 stick of RAM in at a time, swap them out until the faulty culprit is found.

Though the fact that it works fine after you've booted up a few times is quite strange, almost implies a heat based problem (after 3 boot attempts, the circuitry in your machine will have heated up a little bit) which could possibly be reconnecting a broken soulder connection somewhere in your machine that comes apart when it cools down (rule of thermodynamics, things shrink when cool down).

I'd try those memory based tricks i listed above and if you're still getting nowhere after that then come back to us.

There is still a chance that these sticks could be causing the same fault now.

Its best to be thorough.

Read somewhere this particular BSOD's ID could have something to do with VPN. Apparently updating or uninstalling VPN clients may solve the issue, you may as well try that.

What about memory timings and voltage? Checking that on bios would help also.

Finally, that PSU you have does not seem to meet the minimum power requirements for an Ati HD 5750, which asks for 450w. I know this will sound annoying but could you borrow or get another, more powerful, PSU and check if the BSOD/crashes continue after swaping it with yours?

Cheers

got no vpn client or server running

went through different timings and voltage... no change...

tried a 630w psu a few weeks ago... same problem...
