Default BSOD issues

Hey, I have been having problems with my computer for the past week or so ever since I reformated my hard drive. I have been getting a lot of IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL errors. Now I know everyone is gonna jump and say that it is a memory issue but I am not too sure of it. I ran memtest86 for numerous hours with having both of my sticks in dual channel, single channel together, and each stick independently. Each time I get no errors at all in memtest86. The thing that I dont understand though is if I have both sticks of memory installed in dual channel I get the bsod however If I have them in single channel together it works perfectly fine. I have completely removed my nvidia drivers and reinstalled them in safe mode but that still didn't help. Anyone have any suggestions?

Bump. Does anyone have any clue why I can't get my memory to run in dual channel? I started to also get a pfn_list_corrupt bsod. Any help would be great.

Not memory, drivers. Get all updates for your motherboard, video, and audio drivers. If you are using the latest, try the version right before.

Ok so I have tried everything with all of the drivers on my computer but I am still getting a BSOD. Here is a memory dump from windbg. Hopefully someone can help with it.

IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL (a)
An attempt was made to access a pageable (or completely invalid) address at an
interrupt request level (IRQL) that is too high. This is usually
caused by drivers using improper addresses.
If a kernel debugger is available get the stack backtrace.
Arguments:
Arg1: 00001138, memory referenced
Arg2: 00000002, IRQL
Arg3: 00000000, bitfield :
bit 0 : value 0 = read operation, 1 = write operation
bit 3 : value 0 = not an execute operation, 1 = execute operation (only on chips which support this level of status)
Arg4: 80533923, address which referenced memory

Hmm... I would try resetting your BIOS, as IRQ issues are somtimes cause by impropper configuration.

I have tried resetting it back to defaults and also upgrading to the latest bios version and it still gives me the same errors.
