Windows 7 Recurring BSOD 0x000000A

Specs: Windows 7, Pentium E5400/2GB DDR2 800Mhz
I have been using Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit on a Pentium E5400 cpu with foxconn G41S motherboard, Kingston 2GB DDR2 800Mhz RAM, Western Digital 250GB HD and Samsung SATA DVD writer.

The system was orginally equipped with only 1GB DDR2 RAM and as the Foxconn motherboard has only one DIMM memory slot, I was forced to replace the RAM when recently deciding to upgrade to 2GB. After replacing the RAM with a Kingston 2GB everything works fine, there was no problem and Windows 7 Ultimate boots beautifully in all its glory.

But the trouble begins when I shut it down and disconnect the power supply from the wall socket (when I was not gonna use it for a long time, like, at night when I sleep, or when I'm gonna be away from home) and decided to turn the computer on again.

It boots up and during POST it detects every hardwares such as, RAM, HD, DVDwriter, etc, then boots to desktop. But after sometime this blue screen appears which says something like
" Stop: 0x000000A (xxxxxxxxx) (xxxxxxxx) (xxxxxxxx)(xxxxxxxxxx) ---sorry, I don't know exactly what it says IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL" then restarts itself. But when it does, during POST after detecting all the connected hardwares it hangs at Checking NRram.....or something like that.

I have to force shut it down using the power botton and restart. After that windows boots up normally with no problem. But shutdown and disconnect all power from it, same thing happens again and again!

I am completely at a loss as to what to do. Could somebody advise me as to what could be wrong?

I have asked questions here before with very helpful solutions and am looking forward to receiving a solution from any members or Admins from this prestigious site. And I thank everyone in advance for your help in providing me with a solution to my problem.

ist thing to do is run a repair, you can do this by tapping F8 during boot and choosing repair, if you dont have that option, try last known good config.
nest try the repair from the repair/recovery cd, if you didnt make one try here http://neosmart.net/blog/2009/windo...

finally run a mem check it just maybe that your ram has problems..
when leaving the computer dont bother pulling the plug, just switch it off.if you pulled the plug before it properly shut down you can cause problems..

i hate computers!
but cant help myself....

Check for any loose connections (ide/sata/power etc) inside the pc case or u can reset them. Use memtest to test ram.

Replace motherboard battery. When you remove power, all your settings are lost due to your motherboard's battery being dead and not able to keep the BIOS settings. When you turn your computer on, all BIOS settings revert to BIOS defaults, which seem to not be able to run your system and give you BSOD.

After you replace the battery, you must configure your BIOS to suit your system parameters, like RAM modules, etc.

I agree with #4 being the most likely cause.
