Your crashes are all over the map. we are going to need to elimate the problems one at a time.

1-ASACPI.SYS a major cause of BSOD's in the 2005 rev.

The pre 2009 version of this driver is a known BSOD cause.

The 2005 version of this driver is a known BSOD cause.
Please visit this link: ASUSTeK Computer Inc. -Support- Drivers and Download P7P55D LE ASUSTeK Computer Inc. -Support- Drivers and Download P7P55D LE
Scroll down to the Utilities category, then scroll down to the "ATK0110 driver for WindowsXP/Vista/Windows 7 32&64-bit" (it's about the 12th item down).
Download and install it.
Go to C:\Windows\System32\drivers to check and make sure that the ASACPI.sys file is date stamped from 2009 or 2010 (NOT 2005).


2-SPTD.SYS another huge problem used by daemon tools and alcohol120

Remove any CD virtualization programs such as Daemon Tools and Alcohol 120%.

They use a driver, found in your dmp, sptd.sys, that is notorious for causing BSODs.

Use this SPTD uninstaller when you're done:DuplexSecure - Downloads

You can use MagicDisc as an alternative.

Freeware MagicISO Virtual CD/DVD-ROM(MagicDisc) Overview

3-Old drivers update at least these
Code:
ctac32k.sys    7/2/2008 4:38:22 AM        fffff880`050e9000    fffff880`05197000    0x000ae000    0x486b3e7e                        
AsUpIO.sys    7/5/2009 10:21:38 PM        fffff880`0450e000    fffff880`04514000    0x00006000    0x4a515fb2
How To Find Drivers:
Quote:
- search Google for the name of the driver
- compare the Google results with what's installed on your system to figure out which device/program it belongs to
- visit the web site of the manufacturer of the hardware/program to get the latest drivers (DON'T use Windows Update or the Update driver function of Device Manager).
- if there are difficulties in locating them, post back with questions and someone will try and help you locate the appropriate program.
- - The most common drivers are listed on this page: Driver Reference Driver Reference
- - Driver manufacturer links are on this page: Drivers and Downloads

4- update your video driver using this method

When upgrading your graphic driver you MUST remove all traces of the current driver. In order to do that we recommend using http://www.guru3d.com/category/driversweeper/


Or http://phyxion.net/item/driver-sweeper.html

When it is removed then download and install the fresh copy.

Bsof

I just got that same BSOF and now I'm in safe mode so I can post this. Attached is my newest minidump file. Can you please review it and lead me in the right direction? I tried all the updates and even did that majic disk thing which turned out be a major problem on my machine now. Thanks in advanced.
