Random BSOD's that happened today

Well first off i didnt install anything new cept a game and a new copy of Nero 10 i just purchased. Not sure whats going on, but if someone can read these and tell me whats happened that be great

Specs
Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit
AMD Athlon II x2 260
MSI 870-G45
4GB DDR3 1033
200GB Seagate Barracuda 7200


First off, my hard drive is not the newest, so im thinking that could be a problem, im going to upgrade to a cavier black 2TB so, if thats whats causing it, ill update ASAP

i havent gotten a BSOD in a couple months so im not sure why it just started outta the "blue" no pun intended.

thanks in advance for any help

edit: Also noticed my Nvidia Geforce GT240 has been lagging up on games lately, so im also wondering if that could be it, my drivers are updated all around my system.

The dmp(s) point to ntkrpamp.exe or ntoskrnl.exe as the probable cause. We know this is not the case, as these are core OS files, and will definitely not cause a BSOD. They are just the default files the debuggers blame when they can't see a better cause. We need to run driver verifier to pinpoint the faulting driver...

- Go to Start and type in "verifier" (without the quotes) and press Enter
- Select "Create custom settings (for code developers)" and click "Next"
- Select "Select individual settings from a full list" and click "Next"
- Select everything EXCEPT FOR "Low Resource Simulation" and click "Next"
- Select "Select driver names from a list" and click "Next"
Then select all drivers NOT provided by Microsoft and click "Next"
- Select "Finish" on the next page.

Reboot the system and wait for it to crash to the Blue Screen. Continue to use your system normally, and if you know what causes the crash, do that repeatedly. The objective here is to get the system to crash because Driver Verifier is stressing the drivers out.

In additions to Yowan's excellent advice, update or rename these two drivers. Out of date drivers can and do cause BSOD's. The one in bold font is really obsolete.

Driver verifier is meant to cause more BSODs which will directly point to the faulting driver(s), boot into safe mode with networking and upload the new dumps

Hi all I can't believe it -- how on earth did Man Utd lose today after being EASILY the better team. For once Fergies ranting against the refereee was totally justified -- a more obvious offside goal I don't think I've ever seen. The Referee was also in a totally HOPELESS position to even...
