computer keeps crashing with blue screens

hi experts,

 my hp computer that is running windows 7 keeps crashing. Can you look at the minidump files attached and let me know if you can see what is causing the blue screens?

The first dump says HAL and NTOSKRNL. That suggests an operating system corruption.

Can you run CHKDSK to see if it finds bad files or disk problems. Run by itself (no /F parameter) first to see what it finds.

15109 says : PFN_LIST_CORRUPT (4e)  - -  IMAGE_NAME:  memory_corruption and PROCESS_NAME:  smss.exe
15406 : IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL (a)

since both are different, i suspect bad ram
run memtest86+ from www.memtest.org, or from the UBCD :
