BSOD- Persistent for months, cannot pinpoint problem. Different codes

I've been getting BSOD for months now, and it is driving me crazy. I cannot find out the problem.

Things I've done, that has not helped:
-New/upgraded power supply
-Memtest = No faulty ram
-New hard drive = no help
-Took out graphics card to try onboard graphics = Still crashes

I bought this machine from dell outlet about 8 months ago. Had no problems for a few weeks, and then slowly the blue screen of death became more frequent.

I'm not really sure what system information I need to include in my post, but it is a 64bit windows 7. Please let me know what else I can do to help fix this problem, it is driving me insane and I am on the verge of ordering a mac.

Hi Ray welcome to SF

Please remove and clean avg from your system using the avgremoverx64

Download and instal Microsoft Security Essentials

Enable windows firewall.

Finish and post back with any results.

Thanks so much for the quick response mr guru. I have done everything you suggested. The BSOD comes and goes like herpes so I won't know for sure how productive these changes are until a few days from now.

I shall update when I get a better idea.

Hmm I was playing Starcraft 2, and I got another BSOD.

My computer is running a startup repair to try and check for problems. Once I finish, I shall post my BSOD info and hopefully it will help.

Is there anything I should post from this new BSOD crash?

EDIT-*******************
I realized why the avgremover failed to completely remove the AVG program. The file posted was not the most recent version or there was some other problem with it. I searched for the remover on AVG's site and was able to fully remove it.

I shall wait and see if this changes anything.

Good work!

Yes now we must wait for the results.

I have continued to get the blue screens again.

Before the screen goes completely blue, the screen often gets distorted with all sorts of colors. There is sometimes a very faint high pitch sound that sounds as it transits into the blue screen (~1 sec).

What further actions should I take?

Here is the latest blue screen info. It really sucks that I cant seem to find out what the problem is! I don't want to keep throwing money at the problem blindly . Does the screen distorting before BSOD tell anything about what kind of problem this might be?

Anybody know what further actions I can take to help pinpoint the problem? It is driving me crazy, and I don't know what else to do.

I feel so useless just waiting around hoping for a response. Is there anything I should try to test out to help pinpoint the problem?

To pinpoint the problem we must enable Driver Verifier.

First though read carefully these 2 tutorials then enable it.
