Windows 7 Ultimate x64 BSOD several times a day - Please Help

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 has been giving me BSOD several times a day for the past couple of weeks. They occur randomly while on internet and also while computer is idle.

System is a custom built desktop that I bought about 5 months ago. Windows is an OEM version that was installed when I bought the pc. I have not reinstalled windows since buying it.

Motherboard: MSI NF750-G55 V1
CPU: AMD Phenom II x3 B73 processor
Memory: Patriot 8GB DDR3 (2x4GB) G2 Series PC3-10666 1333Mhz
Video: ATI Radeon HD 4650 1GB
Anti-virus: Avast free edition

Thanks for any help in identifying my problem.

Thanks so much for the quick reply!

I completed all of the steps, drive sweep and reinstall video drivers.

I downloaded and ran FurMark. My card ATI HD4650 leveled out at 65 C after about 6 minutes or so. I redid the test and got the same result. Were there any results that I was supposed to post here? Or does this mean that my card passed the test?

Do you think that resolved my problem? I'll reply back if I get another BSOD.

Thanks so much for your help!!

As you can read in the card stress test tutorial, during test you have to watch for artifacts.

Post back with any results.

I did not see any artifacts and the temp leveled out at 65 C after about 7 minutes. Didn't notice anything else. Thanks!
