Windows 7: BSOD Every 40-50 mins, error 0x0000003b

I ran driver verifier following the steps exactly how ZigZag described them and I still could not boot into windows unless I choose safe mode. But when I choose safe mode windows only loads necessary drivers so verifier can not test any of the drivers that need to be tested. What do I do if verifier will not test the drivers because it crashes before I can log in to my account? Thank you. Also thanks for the help with deleting posts writhziden I read on another forum with the similar error code and same driver (gdrv.sys) that they said to just delete gdrv.sys. Will this get rid of my problem? Thanks again.
One more thing: When selecting drivers in driver verifier i see the gdrv.sys driver. If I do not select that driver and run verifier will it still crash? And if it doesn't does that mean for sure that gdrv.sys is my problem? I also forgot to mention that verifier is crashing the computer before it shows the login screen for windows and does not display a blue screen and does not create a verifier enabled bsod dump.

I also analyzed your crashes and saw gdrv.sys in nearly all of them. That is the Gigabyte Easy Saver - mobo power utility driver; I would recommend uninstalling all Gigabyte power related utilities since they can cause conflicts on some systems. Start Menu -> Control Panel -> Uninstall a program

Disable Verifier, then uninstall the power utilities. After that, do your normal routine (with Verifier still disabled) for twice as long as it generally takes for you to get a crash to see if the system is stable. Post back if you get a crash or after that twice as long period, whichever comes first.

Writh: I actually uninstalled all the gigabyte utilities that I downloaded because it was mentioned in the other forum that said to delete gdrv.sys to also uninstall the utilities just like you recommended. I did this yesterday and since then I have not had a crash with verifier disabled and constant use of the machine for 6 hours. I went to the location of gdrv.sys and it showed it was last modified at the same time I uninstalled the utilities. So what ever I did must have worked. Should I still delete gdrv.sys since it was provided by gigabyte? Thank you both ZigZag and Writh for your outstanding help with my problem. You guys rock! If the problem comes back I know now where to go for help! Thanks again!

You're welcome.

You could try renaming it to gdrv.sys.bak instead of deleting it. That way, if it causes issues, we can walk you through steps to rename it back. Do you have access to another system in case for some strange reason Windows will not start with that driver renamed?
