Windows 7: DRIVER_IRQL and BSOD and random screen freezes

Here are the screens. Also I recently updated the SSD to the new 309 firmware, and I checked the ram with both memtest and mdsched.

Updating it didn't seem to work (Gigabyte Easy Energy Saver) - so I'm taking the next step in having you remove it.
EasyTune6 is a known BSOD cause - but I only suspect the Easy Energy Saver, so we're a bit more cautious in how we treat it.

Don't be messing around in the registry for the AODDriver.
Go to Device Manager,
Click on View, then on Show Hidden Devices
Scroll down to the Plug and Play devices section
Locate the AODDriver entry there - RIGHT CLICK on it and select "UNINSTALL"

Removing CCC isn't as critical as AODDriver - so don't worry about that for now.

It's under NON-plug and play, and after I reboot the system, it's STILL there.

OK, try this:

Make a System Repair disk and verify that it works (Start...All Programs...Maintenance...Create a System Repair Disc). Also, make a system restore point in case these steps make the system unbootable.

1 - go to Start and type in "services.msc" (without the quotes) and press Enter.
Scroll down to the AOD service (if it's there), right click on it and select "Properties"
Then, in the dropdown box for Startup Type select "Disabled"
Click OK to exit the dialog

REBOOT

2 - download/install this free program: Autoruns for Windows
Search for all instances of AODDriver. Disable them by unchecking the box on the left side of the entry

REBOOT

3. Go to C:\Windows\System32\drivers and rename AODDriver2.sys to AODDriver2.BAD

REBOOT

It sounds like video drivers.
Uninstall ATI/AMD video stuff from Control Panel
Download/install fresh copy of ATI drivers from ATI website ( Global Provider of Innovative Graphics, Processors and Media Solutions | AMD )

I JUST did that the other day. guess it must have installed bad? could the Radeon 6970 I got be bad based on previous problems?

I dunno - but it'll tell us if the previous installation was bad. I'm concerned that the AOD Driver didn't go away, so it's worth a try to do it again. (the installation of the fresh drive shouldn't have the AMD OverDrive program).

And yet, it did have it in it. aoddriver2.sys is back on my computer after reinstalling AMD Vision Engine Control Center.

and the screen did that weird glitch again, although this time it was on the other monitor as I was playing wow, and it was just a clean line this time, no pulsating or wave-lengths.

should I just try running 1 monitor now or what? I've stress tested my gpu with like every stress test I know and it's passed every time with no errors. I don't get it.
