Windows 7: BSOD playing demanding games and seemingly at random

BSOD playing demanding games and seemingly at random

Ok I've ran memtest86+ on my ram. Ive ran prime 95 on my processor and also unigine Heaven on my graphics card for multiple hours and none of these have given any warnings or errors or forced a bluescreen.
I think it might be the hard drive because I ran hdtune and it said my c drive had Reallocated Sector Count curent 100 worst 100 threshold 36 data 10 status warning number oif damaged sectors which have been replaced:10.
Also my d drive (samsung) used to store some games on had ultra DMA CRC Error count current 100 worst 99 threshold 0 data 5 status warning. Number of interface communication errors 5 There were comm errors this may be cause by damaged cable( ran game from c drive instead and still bluescreened though seemed better)
It also may be drivers of the gfx card also because who crashed says things like driver errors and memory errors.
This problem persisted from new windows install and new ram(the current ones on ym profile) changes of storage places and was also brought to a computer repair place they charged me 85 to clean it all and ran so called 'extensive' tests on it and couldnt get it to bluescreen but they day i got it home the problem still persisted.
I answered all the questions when I signed up to these forums so all my system info is there on the account.
Please help

Most of these point to memory corruption

The first probable cause is asacpi.sys


1-ASACPI.SYS

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

Please visit this link: ASUS teK 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).



Then run a system file check

Run a system file check to verify and repair your system files.
To do this type cmd in search, then right click to run as administrator, then
SFC /SCANNOW

Read here for more information SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Let us know the results from the report at the end.



Finally driver verifier

Quote:
I'd suggest that you first backup your stuff and then make sure you've got access to another computer so you can contact us if problems arise. Then make a System Restore point (so you can restore the system using the Vista/Windows 7 Startup Repair feature).

In Windows 7 you can make a Startup Repair disk by going to Start....All Programs...Maintenance...Create a System Repair Disc - with Windows Vista you'll have to use your installation disk or the "Repair your computer" option at the top of the Safe Mode menu .

Then, here's the procedure:
- 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. If it doesn't crash for you, then let it run for at least 36 hours of continuous operation (an estimate on my part).

If you can't get into Windows because it crashes too soon, try it in Safe Mode.
If you can't get into Safe Mode, try using System Restore from your installation DVD to set the system back to the previous restore point that you created.

C:\Windows\System32\DriverStore\FileRepository\atk2000.inf_amd64_neutral_a91abe245a6c41c8 Within here is a asacpi.sys that is from 2005 does that matter? ( all the rest are 2009)
I ran the system file check and got an error attatched are the logs from the SFC can you interpret them? As for the driver verifier I think I cant do that ( I may be wrong please tell me if I am) untill I get the answers to these questions also I cant system restore as this install of windows has been bluescreening since day 1
I'd just like to say thanks alot for the reply I REALLY appreciate it
