It most likely is the ram. IRQL errors with the blue screen are noted for being ram related. Though it could be other issues.
If you have the complete IRQL message along with the stop number then we can help further. For now, try changing the ram and see if that doesn't improve this situation.

Test your RAM with memtest.
