I keep getting BSOD and the dump file says its caused by

KERNEL_DATA_INPAGE_ERROR amd_sata.sys
and
KERNEL_DATA_INPAGE_ERROR ntoskrnl.exe

What happens is whenever i do a bunch of tasks at once it starts to freeze up and crashes eventually.

The dump files are listed here

Report from speccy telling my system info:

I have 2 power supply's one is a 550 watt that is connected to everything but the graphics card and the other is a 500 watt connected only to the graphics card and one fan.

Could be a defective RAM stick, try running on one stick at a time and in different slots. If you find a problem with one, reseat firmly and hope it was a poor connection...Next suspect would be HDD, download and run Diagnostics

Already ran and passed the diagnostics. I have also ran memtest. Any chance it could be the processor?

Unlikely, CPUs rarely fail. Memtest would have to be run for hours to be sure, the trial-and-error method with one stick usually more effective! More often than not the act of reseating them cures the fault. Of course the Memory Controller is incorporated in the CPU, it being an AMD, so it can't be ruled out completely, but make sure the RAM chips are good 1st. Also I have seen similar problems which turned out to be the motherboard, poor data flow from Memory slot to CPU. The only way to prove the CPU might be to buy the cheapest possible replacement off Ebay and trying that...
Sempron 140?

AMD_SATA.SYS
This points to a hard drive problem of some sort, particularly the drive with the swap file on it because KERNEL_DATA_INPAGE_ERROR is windows saying it can't access memory somewhere on the swap file. Either a drive is going bad or the controller or the driver is bad. Start with reinstalling the driver. Then do a full scan on your hard drive that has the Swap file on it. Check your sata cables too, swap them around and see if that helps.

Also, what I mean by scan the hard drive is by going to my computer, right click on the drive, select properties then Tools > Check Now > Select the "Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors"... Although this is a long shot because usually you will have a long freeze before you get the BSOD.

Edit: Nevermind I see you said a long freeze before your bsod, yea more than likely you got bad sectors on your hard drive somewhere.

Oh one other thing, grab HD tune pro and have it look at your hard drive. I went thru the data regarding the hard drive portion of your spec dump and saw what looks like were some errors going on there(it said the SMART on your drive was fine thou), particularly with the CRC error checks which would be more than likely a bad cable.

So what's a bad CRC error count? (Mine's 253 on SSD and 199 HDD) and I'm not having problems...

Bad CRC error count is generally communication errors between the hard drive and the hard drive controller that are caused by things like a bad connector or bad cable, sometimes it can be the controller on either the mobo or the hard drive itself, but usually these can be either be detected or the controllers just plain stop working.

@dodger, if you don't see your CRC error count go any higher then that means that whatever problem that was causing CRC errors before no longer exists, like a loose connection or interference on the cable, or a cable that was bad before but is now replaced.

The error went away for a while. I thought my system was underpowered so i put in a bigger power supply and that seemed to have fixed it, then today I got another BSOD.

CRITICAL_OBJECT_TERMINATION ntoskrnl.exe

This hard drive is new and passes the Western Digital Data Lifeguard Diagnostics so i dont think thats whats causing it. I guess it could be the memory since i bought the cheapest i could find. I'll test it again i guess.
