BSOD while playing games/sometimes in idle.

I've been trying to fix this blue screen forever I normally get it while playing games and rarely get it while browsing the web sitting in idle etc etc. I have a new install of Windows 7 Ultimate installed it about 2 days ago.

Mainboard Gigabyte GA-880GA-UD3H

CPU AMD Phenom II X6 1090T

Ram 16GB

VGA ATI Radeon HD 5700 hooked up through HDMI to my TV

So far from what I am reading it looks like you haven't done any security updates, or windows updates at all.

Please do your windows updates.

Also uninstall and remove from the computer the Xbox 360 Controller.

Afterwards please post back results.

Thanks,
Gamer

Dxdiag came back fine did all the steps and everything was okay it sensed my controller everything was enabled and I've already installed the latest driver for my video card. Also I have just uninstalled my xbox controller will play a game later to see if it worked.

I'm a little confused. The latest drivers are 2012 drivers, yours appear to be from 2011.
