Test the RAM

If you can swap out the RAM with known good modules for testing first if you can't do that then test the machine with one RAM module at a time until you tested every module. Other wise run the the following RAM testers.
--------------------------------------------

NOTE IF THIS DOESN'T FIND ANYTHING WRONG WITH THE RAM THIS DOESN'T MEAN THE RAM IS GOOD you would need to swap out the RAM with known good modules for testing. However if it does find something wrong then chances are the RAM is bad.

Give this a go. It just maybe a system file that is out of whack.

Try Start > Run

SFC /scannow

and see what happens.

You said you tested the RAM. Did you mean you test these modules in a different machine? If so that still doesn't rule out the RAM.
