Windows 7: BSOD 7e, 3b, and a primarily while gaming

BSOD 7e, 3b, and a primarily while gaming

Windows 7 Home Premium, 64bit (Original installed OS).
Full Retail.
System is about a year and a half old (pre/custom built).
Most recent OS installation was probably about a year ago.
Antivirus is Microsoft Security Essentials and Malwarebytes (the system health report says I have none for some reason).
If necessary I can provide my system specs.


I've been trying to troubleshoot my BSOD issues the last 2 months (it seemed like I had been narrowing down the problem) but I'm not sure what to do from here. During prolonged gameplay (usually) my computer will BSOD; sometimes quickly, sometimes not at all, always seemingly random. I've been able to reproduce the blue screens most frequently and reliably playing Battlefield 3, with the quickest occurrence happening ~2 seconds into a match.


A few things I've already done:

Ran memtest on two seperate occasions for about 7 passes. No errors.
Updated my nForce drivers and clean installed my graphics card driver.
Updated my router firmware and network adapter driver.
Updated and then later uninstalled my mouse software/it's related driver (the mouse driver was one of the "causes" of the crashes according to BlueScreenView).
Ran the memory/stress test from OCCT on my graphics card (no problems).


The most relevant BSOD dmp files from the attachment(s) would probably be the newest four. Both a's happened while I was trying driver verifier. The 7e one happened while I was rendering in 3dStudioMax, the 3b along with one of the a's happened while playing Battlefield 3, and the other a happened during startup.


Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you for your time.

Took out my gfx card, ram, and cleaned everything out again. Temps are basically the same as before after trying a few matches of BF3 tonight, ~85-90c on the gfx card (gtx 480, they've always run hot) and ~45-50c on the cpu with max settings. I did not experience a BSOD yet since removing, cleaning, and re-seating everything, but they do seem to occur randomly as I noted before. I'll have to test it more tomorrow.

Related to skfiltv.sys Audio Driver from Creative Technology Ltd. Yours is from 2008. I would re-install newest.

Tried a regular update, clean install, and manually deleting the driver, but downloading the newest driver software from Creative always installs the skfiltv.sys 2008 driver version. For some reason, though, even after all of that the corresponding version of the headset driver in the device manager does not match the newest one from their website (even though I just re-installed it 3 times). Mine continues to display the 3/12/2010 driver date and 1.0.0.640 version even though I'm downloading and installing the 6/3/2010 1.01.0004 version.

I'm going to test and see if re-installing the drivers worked anyway.

Got another BSOD, this time 1E. I'm going to leave my headset unplugged and see if my computer BSOD's again in case skfiltv.sys is still the root cause.

edit: this also happened while playing BF3.

I feel your pain. I am the unfortunate owner of 2 creative products.

Still pointing to the same driver but inconclusive this time.

I'm still getting the same 3b BSOD since removing the headset. Any suggestions?
