For some reason the page that my original question was on isn't working anymore
Just a synopsis of my troubles, I get bsod and I can only boot in safe mode (which doesn't always last because of bsod)
I have a Dell Inspiron N5110.
Here is the System Information file - https://skydrive.live.com/redir?resid=CBB87EE466463A4B!177&authkey=!ALnIVg0Yh5d7W6s
Here is the Driver View Report - https://skydrive.live.com/redir?resid=CBB87EE466463A4B!178&authkey=!ABsaXJhTAUrB1_U
And Finally, the latest Kernel Memory Dump - https://skydrive.live.com/redir?resid=CBB87EE466463A4B!179&authkey=!AGlPlAmflSvwUos
PS FYI I was in safe mode while acquiring the System info file
Thanks for your help!

The attached DMP file is of the PFN_LIST_CORRUPT (4e) bug check.
This indicates that the page frame number (PFN) list is corrupted.
This error is typically caused by a driver passing a bad memory descriptor list. For example, the driver might have called
MmUnlockPages twice with the same list.
Verifier IS enabled this time, however it's failing to detect a device driver within violation. With this said, most likely a hardware issue at this point. Let's start with a Memtest for NO LESS than ~8 passes (several hours). If it passes, move onto chkdsk
and then Seatools:
You can either download the pre-compiled ISO that you would burn to a CD and then boot from the CD, or you can download the auto-installer for the USB key. What this will do is format your USB drive, make it a bootable device, and then install the necessary
files. Both do the same job, it's just up to you which you choose, or which you have available (whether it's CD or USB).
How Memtest works:
Memtest86 writes a series of test patterns to most memory addresses, reads back the data written, and compares it for errors.
The default pass does 9 different tests, varying in access patterns and test data. A tenth test, bit fade, is selectable from the menu. It writes all memory with zeroes, then sleeps for 90 minutes before checking to see if bits have changed (perhaps because
of refresh problems). This is repeated with all ones for a total time of 3 hours per pass.
Many chipsets can report RAM speeds and timings via SPD (Serial Presence Detect) or EPP (Enhanced Performance Profiles), and some even support changing the expected memory speed. If the expected memory speed is overclocked, Memtest86 can test that memory performance
is error-free with these faster settings.
Some hardware is able to report the "PAT status" (PAT: enabled or PAT: disabled). This is a reference to Intel Performance acceleration technology; there may be BIOS settings which affect this aspect of memory timing.
This information, if available to the program, can be displayed via a menu option.
Any other questions, they can most likely be answered by reading this great guide here:
You can run it via Windows or DOS. Do note that the only difference is simply the environment you're running it in. In Windows, if you are having what you believe to be device driver related issues that may cause conflicts or false positive, it may be a wise
decision to choose the most minimal testing environment (DOS).
Run all tests EXCEPT: Fix All, Long Generic, and anything Advanced.
