Okay, so over the course of winter I had assembled a Windows 7 computer under these Specs
------------
Motherboard: ASUSTeK SABERTOOTH 990FX
CPU:AMD FX-6100
Graphics: AMD Radeon HD 6700 Series
Memory: DDR3 8192 MBytes (Called Vengeance)

-------
And after putting it through the ringer of Driver installation, and other hardships associated with a custom computer, its came out more or less on top. However, often when I start my computer or sometimes even randomly during my gaming sessions(No specific games, just randomly) it will crash. From what Bluescreenview says, Apparantly these two are the core issues here.
-------
Issue 1: MEMORY_MANAGEMENT
Bug Check: 0x0000001a
Parameter 1:00000000`00041790
Parameter 2:fffffa80`0525abf0
Parameter 3:00000000`0000ffff
Parameter 4:00000000`00000000
Caused by Driver: ntoskrnl.exe
Caused by Address: ntoskrnl.exe+7cc40
Crash Address:ntoskrnl.exe+7cc40

Issue 2: (Blank. Litterally.)
Bug Check: 0ax0000001
Parameter 1:00000000`00000005
Parameter 2:00000000`00000000
Parameter 3:00000000`00000000
Parameter 4:00000000`00000000
Caused by Driver:atikmdag.sys
Caused by Address: atikmdag.sys+4cdb1
Crash Address:ntoskrnl.exe+7cc40

I will be actively watching over this thread for responses with my phone, so If anyone has any advice or suggestions I'd really appreciate it!

Off the top, it looks like an ATI driver issue. Are you using the newest ATI driver? You could also try downgrading the driver. Sometimes previous versions are better. Also, if you are overclocking, you might want to reset to factory and see if that helps.

Could be one of two things:

Normally, the fact that you got a MEMORY_MANAGEMENT BSOD indicates a faulty stick of RAM, but the fact the second crash pointed directly at the ATI driver [atikmdag.sys] indicates a possible GPU problem.

Best case, its a bad version of the GPU driver. Hopefully, using a different version solves the problem. Worst case, the GPU is bad and needs a replacement.

Likewise, the crash address of the second issue [00000000 00000005] is an address reserved for hardware [the PCI-E bus to be exact] with farther points at the GPU as the culprit.

If you have another GPU to test with, I would recommend doing that in the meantime.

Its possible you ALSO have a RAM problem since the first BSOD isn't typical of a GPU failure, but for the moment, since I'm about 99% sure you have a GPU problem, lets focus on that for now.
