Windows 7 Random BSOD

I'm getting random BSODs about once a month. Nothing is overclocked. I have attached the minidump file. Thank you.

Related to Lycosa.sys Tarantula Keyboard Driver from Razer USA Ltd.

I would re-install with newest.

Thank you for the quick reply. I did not know something like a keyboard could cause BSODs. Also, my keyboard is actually the razer lycosa, not the razer tarantula, so should I still go and install those drivers?

It can and does regularly, and yes you should install the correct driver if available and the newest version you can find.

Ok so I installed the new driver version over but it still BSODs in driver verifier, still blaming lycosa.sys. I have attached the minidump file but it's probably the same.

Can you please give me complete instructions on how to remove the driver and install it instead of what I am doing now which is installing the new version over the old corrupted version. Thank you!

Im unsure if there are specific instructions for removing the driver. I do notice the current driver has the same date as earlier so it may be the newest.

You should probably go to the mfr' site for instructions.

After getting rid of the lycosa.sys file (uninstalled lycosa driver and deleted the sys file from C:\Windows\System32\Drivers) and now I'm getting rtcore64.sys bsod. I have attached the mini dump file.

So I managed to locate the RTCore64.sys file and delete. I also uninstalled MSI Afterburner. I restarted my computer with the driver verifier and OMG IT DIDN`T CRASH WITHIN 10 SEONDS OF THE WELCOME SCREEN!

Thank you for helping me this far. Now, how long should I run driver verifier. I noticed that with driver verifier on, my computer was extremely laggy, even with such a beefy system. Response times were slow and opening programs took very long. The hard drive seemed to be working the entire time. Is this normal? Thank you my kind sir.
