Blue Screen of Death and Its Error Codes

So back about 3 months ago, I built a computer for my sister so she could play games and do her homework for school. This was actually my first ever build so I still am learning. Just the other day, she got a blue screen, and upon restarting her computer it blue screened again. It continues to blue screen after being on for about 10 seconds but every time she gets a different error message. Some of the ones she has gotten have been MEMORY_MANAGEMENT, PNF_LIST_CORRUPT, and KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT HANDLED. Upon my research into these errors, it seems like her RAM could have failed, but the KMODE error points to a bad driver. I also had her run the Windows Memory Diagnostic which resulted in the message "Your PC/Device needs to be repaired" due to an unexpected error.

My questions are:
1. Am I correct in assuming that the RAM has gone bad and that it is causing all the errors or are there other factors that could be causing this BSOD?
2. If it is the RAM should I go ahead and RMA it right away or is there any other steps I can take to try to fix it how it is?

    Try removing the RAM and Re-Seating it one slot at a time test with each DIMM that's put back in.

    If the issue occurs when one of the sticks is put in chances are it's faulty.

    More reputable Memory suppliers have lifetime warranties.
  2. Could be bad drivers if youre using a Nvidia card. Theyre buggy as

    If you can get into windows upload the dmp files to onedrive. Then post the link

    I will try this when I get home for the weekend. Thank you for the suggestion. It is Kingston HyperX Fury RAM so I do believe it has a lifetime warranty. Thanks again.
