Windows 7: I cannot pinpoint the source of my BSODs

Have you run a check disk from Windows (Start Menu->My Computer->Right Click Hard Disk(s)->Properties->Tools->Check Now->Check Automatically fix file system errors->Start->Run when the computer restarts if necessary)?

Also, since one of your BSOD was related to a system file, I would suggest running SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Update DirectX if needed, re-install the display adapter driver using the method I suggested if DirectX did not fix the problem, run a check disk if those two do not fix it, and then run the system file checker if the previous three fixes do not work.

Yes, the graphics card is under display adapter in device manager.

My directx is up to date.

I have a concern with what i found i driver sweeper, it says i have 2 display drivers, one by amd and one by nvidia, my graphics card is by amd, its ati rad hd 5670.

here is a screen shot of the drivers found by driver sweeper (attached)

why is that nvidia junk there? i dont have a nvidia graphics card, should i remove the nvidia drivers?

or should i leave the nvidia drivers alone, sweep the amd display, and reinstall an up to date driver for my graphics card

Those are the drivers supported by Driversweeper. They are not the drivers on your system. To sweep your AMD drivers, just select the AMD set and analyze and clean.

I ran the check disk. It did not solve the problem, sense I ran the check disk I have had 1 blue screen, and im here to post about it.

It said "NTFS.sys" and "page fault in non page area", i also wrote down the addresses...

After this blue screen i opened up windbg, and it now says my issues are "Probably caused by : Ntfs.sys ( Ntfs+a9c95 )"

I'm going to update my original post with information like what tests I already tested and stuff.

Any ideas to help me?

Yes I think i did the system file check a few days ago actually, but I'm doing it again. When I was trying to update my original post I actually had a "memory management" BSOD, which was annoying. I then booted in safe mode and got a blue screen when windows was starting up IN SAFE MODE. However I tried booting in safe mode again, and now im in it, just fine for now. Usually I get bluescreens on start up when I try to boot my computer after having to shut it down after receiving a non-start up blue screen. Maybe this blue screen in safe mode was just because I just booted it right after a blue screen, or maybe not. Anyway Im doing the new system file check, I will post back with results soon

SFC 100% complete. Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations. What do you think now?

Anytime you have a memory corruption BSOD, there is a chance of the corruption still being there when the system boots. To avoid this completely, shut off the computer, unplug all power sources (AC Adapter then Battery), hold down the power button for 30 seconds, plug power sources back in (Battery then AC Adapter), and turn your computer back on.

This will ensure that your memory is cleared and any corruptions are removed. It will also reset the software connections between the BIOS and hardware.
