Memory management error.

I bought new memory for my PC. Ever since, I get random fatal Windows errors (memory management). I have tried a whole bunch of different settings in BIOS with no luck.

When I bought the memory, I didn't know about qualified vendor lists and bought a type of memory not on the list for my motherboard. Could this be the reason for for the random Windows crashing? Memtest86 shows no errors after 5 passes and other memory checking programs also show no errors. The RAM seems to be good.

The only thing I haven't tried is a re installation of Windows. And this is the main question I am asking about: if all else fails, is a re installation of Windows at all likely to get the new memory to work? Has that worked for anyone?

CPU: i920 quad core
Memory: PNY ddr3 1600 4Gb X2

  2. My BIOS is up to date however the last update for my mobo (ASUS by the way) is dated about 7 years ago. Everything is up to date including my OS (Win 10 64-bit), graphics card, sound card, etc and I have tried numerous configurations in my BIOS.

    The only thing I haven't tried is a reinstallation of Windows, which is actually the main question I am asking: how likely is the chance that reinstalling Windows will fix the problem? Has that worked for anyone in this situation?
