Windows 7: New Self-built PC, Random BSOD's occuring

New Self-built PC, Random BSOD's occuring

I have been receiving random BSOD errors since building my PC on 08/12/12. They do not seem to be occurring at any specific instances, but rather almost completely randomly. Attached is my latest BSOD information. I suspect driver issues, but have no way of confirming that myself. I have had hardware issues in the past with the same PC, and more details will be provided if needed. Thank you for your help!

The driver is somehow old.
Code:

It is Intel Storage driver. Update it from http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Defa...ng&ProdId=2101.

Run RAM - Test with Memtest86+ as suggested in the tutorial.

Let us know the results.

I have run the memtest, and attached is the picture of the completed 7 run scan (there seem to be no errors).

I do have one question. I assume you are talking about the IRST Driver when you say "intel driver". I have downloaded the applicable file from Intel's website, but there does not seem to be any way to actively install it. Is this a manual process, or am I missing something?

Also, I have received a few more BSOD's in the interim. Attached is the most recent log.

First, use |MG| Driver Fusion (Driver Sweeper) 1.1.1 Download to remove the driver, and then try thew driver upgrade via Device manager.

It is to know that if the crashes are still occurring after upgrading that driver.

This is another issue I have been having when looking through instructions from Intel's website. I do not see any entry within the device manager that points to the IRST or anything of the sort.

I also do not know which entry to delete within the Driver Sweeper menu (and I'd rather not delete the wrong one :P)
The attached picture is both windows side-by-side. Is anything abnormal?

All those are chipset drivers. Is not anything there called Rapid Storage Technology or something similar?

That is why I am slightly confused. There is no mention of IRST anywhere within the tools/Device manager. This image is after startup of Driver Sweeper

Please remove/uninstall completely the Asus Software!!

Uninstall AVG completely then install Microsoft Security Essentials - Free Antivirus for Windows

Follow this guide too:

msconfig - boot faster and crash less.

1. Click on the Windows 7 start icon in the bottom left corner of your screen.

2. Type msconfig in the search box and then either press enter on your keyboard or double-click on the msconfig program that appears in the search results.

3. Windows 7 will launch Microsoft's System Configuration Utility. Click on the Startup tab.

4. This takes you to a page with a list of "startup items." Startup items are programs that are automatically loaded every time you turn on your computer. Some startup programs are absolutely necessary e.g Anti Virus, others are simply a waste of RAM.

5. Click on the OK button.

6. A message will pop up telling you that you must restart your computer before these changes will take effect. Click on "Restart" and your computer will automatically reboot.

7. That's it! Your computer should now boot faster and crash less.

If you ever want to turn on any of the startup items you disabled with msconfig , just run msconfig again.

Post dump files here, if you get any more.

Thanks
