Blue screen errors on startup

I tried starting up my computer today and just as it gets to the windows loading screen up comes a blue screen of death with the following error codes:
*** STOP: 0x0000007E (0xFFFFFFFFC0000005, 0xFFFFF8800111EA27, 0xFFFFF88002988A08, 0xFFFFF88002988260)

***          ACPI.sys - Address 0xFFFFF8800111EA27 base at FFFFF880010FC000, Datestamp 4a5bc106

I get this blue screen error no matter how I try to start up my computer, eg Windows startup repair, safe mode.
My computer is about 3 or so years old now, so I'm suspecting that it could be a hardware problem, I'm guessing the RAM, but this is sheer supposition on my part.
If more information is needed, just let me know and I'll try to get it if I can.

Be sure to do this :

Remove ALL power and reseat the cards, memory, and cables (on both ends when
possible) - actually remove and replace - do no just snug.

Other methods that "might" work include making a bootable USB drive. Remember when a CD/DVD
drive is needed to set anything up they can be done on another computer then used as needed on
this one.
