Default ugh, computer crashing

Ive been having a problem for about 6 months where my computer crashes to a blue screen that says dumping physical memory (it always cites different dll files as the reason). There are several things I have done since receiving this problem:
-reformatted twice
-installed a new video card
-installed new ram (which helped my computer a lot but still didnt fix the problem)

Tonight I am planning on removing the current sound card and using the onboard sound to see if that is causing it. I'm really hoping its not the motherboard or processor. Anybody have any other suggestions? Here are my computer specs if it helps:
-Asus P4C 800-E Deluxe
-P4 3.2ghz processor
-2 gigs of Balistix ram from Crucial
-80g Seagate hard drive (and for data 120g Maxtor)

If anyone has any ideas I'd love to hear them... I feel like Im running out of options. Who knows maybe the soundcard is the problem.

Make sure My Computer > Properites > Advanced Tab > Startup and Recovery > Settings, is configured as so:

I'm not sure how much that'll help, but you could give it a try.
