my computer says that the Nvidia Geforce6200 driver is up to date with the most recent version. Also, I added the extra info.

yes, they are still happening consistently. You said that the driver for my video card was causing most of my problems right? I found another video card in my house that is a bit older, but it was working fine the last time it was used. Do you think I should switch out my current one for it?

alright, I put the new graphics card in and gave it some time and I haven't had a single BSOD yet
however Firefox and IE still like to crash a lot. but it's nothing more than a minor annoyance. though if you have a solution on how to fix that too I would be grateful.
Finally, thanks for all of your help on this

Okay, since the PC seems lil stable with the other graphics card, I would suggest you to do a Clean Install Windows 7 (The links for downloading the OS (pre-SP1) are linked on this tutorial). Get the latest drivers/chipset/motherboard drivers for it (if available). If not from the manufacturers website then install via Driver Install - Device Manager.

Good Luck and let us know if there are any other problems

I actually did do a clean install. I just accidentally put fresh install in the title.
I also just tried updating and windows refuses to download the updates. it just sits at 0% downloaded when I try manually downloading them through control panel and doesn't do anything when it tries downloading them on shutdown.

How many updates are you trying at once? The reason I linked you to clean install factory OEM is because it has SP1 integrated. Try installing few at a time..btw does it give you back any error code?

80070057 (windows help didn't have any results for this one)
8024200D (windows help recommended System Update Readiness Too
