Windows 7: Random BSOD while computer IDLE and Gaming

I have updated the BIOS quite recently. I believe within the last two months. Has there been another update since?

I just had BSOD. I was browsing the web with a couple tabs open. I was researching the latest BIOS version for my MOBO. WinAmp was also playing music and I also had Stress test running but the temp didn't go above 59/60 (it was jumping between the two temps).

GIGABYTE - Motherboard - Socket AM3+ - GA-970A-D3 (rev. 1.0/1.1)

Is the website you need.

ONLY go to the GIGABYTE site for updates, etc for your motherboard.

In case you are wondering, running other things at the same time as the stress test is a good way to cause a BSOD.

Ok I have updated my BIOS. Now I wait for another BSOD and upload the report? That is if I get one..

Ok I noticed it skipped some of the script on the second one.. I think it's because I didn't have the drive it was asking for? A: If I remember correctly.

None of these scripts ask for drive A;
Please rerun the drivers script and upload all three files.
