Windows 7: BSOD occuring randomly

BSOD occuring randomly

So I have had my new PC for 2 days now. I had no BSODs with my previous installation that was actually for my old computer.

But now I installed 64bit Windows 7 Pro and I am getting those BSODs quite randomly. It occurs like 2-3 times a day. I can't figure out the reason behind it so I decided to post here.

Hardware:
Intel i5 2500K
Asus P8P67 deluxe
8Gb DDR3
Nvidia GTX 560 Ti

In the attachments there are 2 images of the report I get after my PC boots after the BSOD and perfmon report and the other collection files.

Tell me if you need anything else to figure this out.

We do need the DMP file as it contains the only record of the sequence of events leading up to the crash, what drivers were loaded, and what was responsible.

You may be able to get the DMP files without crashing by booting into safe mode (F8) with networking.

To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder.

The procedure:

* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.
*If the files are too large please upload them to a file sharing service like "Rapidshare" and put a link to them in your reply.


To ensure minidumps are enabled:

* Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
* Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
* Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
* Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb varies).
* Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
* OK your way out.
* Reboot if changes have been made.

Oh I forgot the dumps. Here they are.

I think there is just one now because I used CCleaner earlier.

Its often impossible to diagnose from a single DMP and this is the case here. There are somethings I can tell you

*-Avast is often the cause of BSOD's. I would remove and replace with Microsoft Security essentials

Virus, Spyware & Malware Protection | Microsoft Security Essentials



*Old drivers needing update.

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

Got the same BSOD while playing Bad company again. I think it's related to my sound card drivers. I am not sure but creative has never been famous of their drivers really. I had a lot of problems with 32bit windows 7 too, but didnt get any BSODs thou.

And I think every time this BSOD has occured I have been playing some game. Different games which makes me belive that it is the sound card.

As indicated in my previous post AVAST and old drivers. Both are still there.

It seems updating sound card drivers didn't help. Still getting BSODs.

Could you tell me which driver files are there now, if there are any? I have tried removing programs and stuff related to those drivers. I am just unsure if there is still something. Since I removed stuff and updated I didn't get any BSODs in 2 days but I got one again last night. It's attached. Could you plese tell me if anything has changed.
