Windows 7: Freezes and ntoskrnl.exe BSOD

Freezes and ntoskrnl.exe BSOD

Hi!
I had some problems in vista back a few month ago running certain games like: sacred2, brawl busters and aion without my computer freezing (this could take a few minutes til hours)
and make loud buzzing noises,
this only happened in these games so i thought it was a soundproblem, i updated drivers and even installed windows 7 to see if the problem remained, it not only remained
now the freezes can occur anytime even in 2d and i started getting bsod's aswell(going back to vista doesnt change anything).
Oh and I also flashed a new bios version using the msi live update tool (yeah i know that was stupid)
so i used the MSI usb flashtool instead and did it in an dos enviroment like it should be done.

Here's the bsod info i got since "selected all drivers installed" in the verifier:

so far i've only got this one while watching something in vlc, seems to be video related but installing the
latest nvidia drivers doesnt help. maybe i should try some beta drivers or old ones?
VIDEO_MEMORY_MANAGER_HAS_ENCOUNTERED_AN_UNEXPECTED_FATAL_ERROR
bug check code: 0x0000010e
caused by driver: watchdog.sys
caused by address: watchdog.sys+122f
crash adress: ntoskrnl.exe+7cc40

this one seems to occur randomly atleast i wasnt running any applications at the time
DRIVER_VERIFIER_DETECTED_VIOLATION
bug check code: 0x000000c4
caused by driver: rdyboost.sys
caused by adress: rdyboost.sys+1521a
crash adress: ntoskrnl.exe+7cc40

SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION
bug check code: 0x0000003b
caused by driver: ntoskrnl.exe
caused by adress: ntoskrnl.exe+7cc40
crash adress: ntoskrnl.exe+7cc40

I removed my dedicated soundcard and used my onboard instead, also tried updatingdrivers.
I ran memtest86+ removed what seems to be some badmemories and then ran 8+ hours without any errors (plenty of different bsod and the freezes still occurs).
Tried switching graphic card to my old one (geforce 9800 gtx) mainly cause it requires lower voltage.
I've checked all tempratures and voltages with HWiNFO64 and it seems fine.

EDIT
recently got this BSOD while installing windows updates
PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA
0x00000050
portcls.sys+1fd3c
ntoskrnl.exe+7cc40

My rig:
Intel Core 2 Quad Q9300
MSI P45 Neo-F (MS-7519)
Corsair CM2X2048-6400C5
Gainward GeForce GTX 560 Ti
Western Digital Caviar WD5000AACS-00ZUB0 (SATA2)
Samsung TSSTcorp CDDVDW SH-S202J
Creative SoundBlaster X-fi Xtremegamer
Corsair VX550W Powersupply

Most recent crash was driver verified and points to readyboost. I would not use it at least to test


The other crashes do point to watchdog



Best advice that I've seen about this error (from here: http://www.sevenforums.com/crashes-d...tml#post356791 )

What you're looking for will be in one of the following categories:

a) BIOS bug
b) a driver whose activity is causing the target processor to lock up
c) a hardware defect (temperature, voltage, dust, RFI, outright borkedness...)
So, check the drivers
Then check the inside of the case (temperature, voltage, dust, etc).
Then run some hardware stress tests

Try this free video stress test: FurMark: VGA Stress Test, Graphics Card and GPU Stability Test, Burn-in Test, OpenGL Benchmark and GPU Temperature | oZone3D.Net
Try this free stress test: Free Software - GIMPS
Quote:
Prime95 Setup:
- extract the contents of the zip file to a location of your choice
- double click on the executable file
- select "Just stress testing"
- select the "Blend" test. If you've already run MemTest overnight you may want to run the "Small FFTs" test instead.
- "Number of torture test threads to run" should equal the number of CPU's times 2 (if you're using hyperthreading).
The easiest way to figure this out is to go to Task Manager...Performance tab - and see the number of boxes under CPU Usage History
Then run the test for 6 to 24 hours - or until you get errors (whichever comes first).
The Test selection box and the stress.txt file describes what components that the program stresses.
Then try replacing parts.
Then look up the versions of your BIOS to see what changes were done.[/QUOTE]

I cant find any problems with the drivers, I've also tried going back to my old version of bios which seems to have reduced the amount of BSOD's I'm getting.
still getting the lockups. Also I've looked on the motherboard and I discovered what seems to be a bad cap (its a little "rusty" on top).
Here's more dumpfiles.

BSOD's are gone after I removed my sound card and are using the onboard instead,
I still get those freezes (actually got BSODs twice while using utorrent, mostly freezes tho. uploading dumps) and it happens every few minutes while running utorrent, but can take hours before crashing in VLC or in games
