RAM. SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION is almost always RAM related, and MEMORY_MANAGEMENT is explicitly RAM corruption.

Run memtest86 for a few hours on each stick of RAM. One of them is likely bad.

...assuming you tested each stick one at a time, that's VERY unlikely, but if you brought the RAM as a pair, possible, Try using a different RAM slot, just in case the slot itself is bad...[not likely either, but worth checking].

Also make sure the RAM settings are correct in the BIOS.

I tested them all individually. but only in 2 different slots. I'm getting some more ram today. I will run a memtest once more. if its still bad I will change out the board thanks much

Huh, sounds like a bad motherboard then. It happens, but a heck of a lot less then RAM going bad. But if 3 out of 4 old sticks AND the new sticks are failing? Yeah, probably the motherboard.
