    Interestingly when I look at whocrashed, sometimes it lists other files that are crashing, is this helpful?

    crash dump file: C:\Windows\Minidump\012814-14390-01.dmp
    This was probably
    caused by the following module:
    ntoskrnl.exe (nt+0x1500A0)
    Bugcheck code: 0xF7
    (0x0, 0x6EFC597CA9DB, 0xFFFF9103A6835624, 0x0)
    Error:

    C:\Windows\system32\ntoskrnl.exe

    Microsoft® Windows® Operating System

    System
    Bug check description: This indicates that a driver has overrun a
    stack-based buffer.
    This appears to be a typical software driver bug and is
    not likely to be caused by a hardware problem.
    The crash took place in the
    Windows kernel. Possibly this problem is caused by another driver that cannot be
    identified at this time.

    and now lastly another one lol..

    crash dump file: C:\Windows\Minidump\020914-20390-01.dmp
    This was probably
    caused by the following module:
    hal.dll (0xFFFFF800C879BE82)
    Bugcheck code: 0x3D
    (0xFFFFD00020A86510, 0x0, 0x0, 0xFFFFF800C879BE82)
    Error:
    INTERRUPT_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED
    file path:
    C:\Windows\system32\hal.dll
    product:
    Microsoft® Windows® Operating System
    company: Microsoft Corporation
    description: Hardware
    Abstraction Layer DLL
    Bug check description: This bug check appears very
    infrequently.
    The crash took place in a standard Microsoft module. Your
    system configuration may be incorrect. Possibly this problem is caused by
    another driver on your system that cannot be identified at this time.

    So all these, plus the fact that after the Nvidia card is turned off and the onboard takes over, it never crashes, has to be pointing to a specific problem, any ideas anyone?

    So looking at CPU-Z SPD tab and changing slot # to see all RAM - are all modules exactly the same?

    How did Realtek card reader driver install? Well?

    Yeah it installed okay, I don't see it on device manager still though. I see the ram are in 4 gb in slot 1 4 in slot 2 and 4 in slot 4, could skipping slot 3 be to blame? How could this affect the computer only when Nvidia card is active? All module sizes are same size at 4096 mbytes.

    Are the part numbers the same for all 3 sticks?

    Either way, if that laptop was mine, I'd be inclined to test it with 2 modules installed in the correct slots (for when using 2) and leaving out the 3rd, just to see how it behaves.

    Yessir, all are the same part number. I also just removed the Nvidia driver that the experience updates automatically and tried the manufacturers and it crashed when I started up a game with the IRQL not less or equal blue screen. I have used furmark before and 3dmark and they both finished and gave me result scores, does this mean no possible way the video card could have a hardware problem or could it still be the actual graphics card even if it ran those said programs?

    I would check that there is no overclocking of the CPU, also. You can look at first tab of CPU-Z while the machine is under load, to determine that.

    As said above, update bios and install video driver(s) from laptop maker's site.

    And test with only two modules.

    Best of luck. If the machine doesn't stabilize with these things in this post, then return the machine for a refund or replacement.
