Windows 7: Weekly random BSOD. Probably Memory, log included

Weekly random BSOD. Probably Memory, log included

I've been having weekly BSODs for the past month (built PC 2-3 months ago).
They seem to be happening randomly, sometimes before Windows starts, sometimes When I'm browsing web.

Last time it happened was when I plugged in my iPod. I'm really unsure as to what the problem could be. I ran memtest clean, but only for 1 sweep. I would really appreciate any help I could get at the moment. I triedsearching online, but there's nothing that specifically applies to me.

The log attached has 4 crash dumps... I tried looking them up to no avail :/

I would really appreciate any help I could get. If u need anything else, just ask

Thanks in advance

Welcome aboard.

There is intel rapid storage technology installed in your computer which is crashing, as usual.
Code:
fffff880`053f4b08  fffff880`0128e1b4Unable to load image iaStor.sys, Win32 error 0n2
*** WARNING: Unable to verify timestamp for iaStor.sys
*** ERROR: Module load completed but symbols could not be loaded for iaStor.sys
 iaStor+0x521b4
You need to uninstall it.

There are some NTFS corruptions, too.
Code:
fffff880`053f4318  fffff880`0163f8bb Ntfs!NtfsAcquireFcbWithPaging+0x13b
  1. Reseat the sata and power.
  2. Run chkdsk /f/r, following the option two of the tutorial Disk Check
  3. Seatool for dos: SeaTools | Seagate download
    Burn it in a blank cd. boot from the CD, click on "Accept", wait for it to finish detecting the drives, then in the upper left corner select "Basic Tests", then select "Long Test" and let it run.
Uninstall the following programs:
  • Gigabyte EasyTunes: first run it, ste everything to default, then uninstall
  • Daemon Tools
Free up the startup.
  1. Click on the Start button
  2. Type “msconfig (without quotes), click the resulting link. It will open the System Configuration window.
  3. Select the “Startup” tab.
  4. Deselect all items other than the antivirus.
  5. Apply > OK
  6. Accept the restart.
Let us know the results.

Hey,
Thanks for replying. I've done most of what you suggested, but I could not get Seatools to recognize my drives because I'm in AHCI mode, and not IDE (SSD drive).
While I was doing the other solutions though, my computer crashed 2 times, pretty randomly... One at startup once while browsing. Still no idea what might be causing this...
I have also removed everything from startup except my Antivirus (Security Essentials)

This time it is the display driver failure.
Code:
fffff880`032ea288  fffff880`0f5fd7d3*** WARNING: Unable to verify timestamp for nvlddmkm.sys
*** ERROR: Module load completed but symbols could not be loaded for nvlddmkm.sys
 nvlddmkm+0x13b7d3
There are some updates released two or three days ago, opt for it.
And, Stress test the Graphics Card, too. Video Card - Stress Test with Furmark

As you are using a SSD, you need to try to update the firmware.

Uninstall Gigabyte Force. Let us know the results.

Updated SSD firmware (Vertex 4 V.15)
Tested card, seems fine. Updated nVidia drivers.
Had crash at startup again today.
Uninstalled Force driver now. May I ask why I needed to uninstall it?

Should I update my BIOS? It's at Version F5, and the newest seems to be F11.
I have attached the log as usual. But it's all the same except the most recent crash. (Should be anyway).

Thank you for helping me

Well, now let us go for Driver verifier.
Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable

Run Driver Verifier for 24 hours or the occurrence of the next crash, whichever is earlier.

Let us know the results, with the subsequent crash dumps, if any.

Anyway, your BIOS is not any old at all, so it should not be a problem.
Code:
Machine ID Information [From Smbios 2.7, DMIVersion 39, Size=3068]
BiosMajorRelease = 4
BiosMinorRelease = 6
BiosVendor = American Megatrends Inc.
BiosVersion = F5
BiosReleaseDate = 03/29/2012
SystemManufacturer = Gigabyte Technology Co., Ltd.
