Can you manually zip the dmp file ? The dmp file should be in C:\Windows\minidumps

I believe the driver is for your Headset . Are you using any Headsets?

I havent looked at your dump files but the fact you are experiencing BSODs on a clean install is concerning this is usually indicative of a hardware problem although it is possible you are installing the offending driver shortly after.
Things to try? you have options here and its really up to you, a clean boot would be an easy first step Troubleshoot Application Conflicts by Performing a Clean Startup this will boot your system without all your regular startup items, if this doesnt help then you could try good old safe mode - along the same lines but with basic drivers and even less bloat on boot, these are pretty basic steps and shouldnt take long if neither of these help or you just dont want too then you could start proving your hardware
First off if your OCing in anyway stop, return everything to stock settings for the purposes of testing
RAM - Test with Memtest86+
Disk Check (windows based check)
Hard Drive Diagnostic Procedure (bootable disk check) using something like SeaTools | Seagate
Next would be some stress tests
Hardware - Stress Test With Prime95
Video Card - Stress Test with Furmark

A different route to go would be driver verifier as mentioned by arc before but you responded that you couldnt ??
This is sometimes very handy for flushing out faulting drivers (although not always) but will make your system very slow and sluggish as it places increased load on drivers in an attempt to cause another crash

Yes I have a Corsair 1500 headset. I would be so darn happy if that were the offender instead of my hardware. Wouldn't it BSOD the moment it gets plugged in though? Let me know what I need to do. thanks!

Thanks for the post Pauly, really appreciate the input. I did initially run driver verifier, but as it readily BSOD's on its own without it running, I didn't see the point in having that going. Maybe I'm not understanding the purpose of driver verifier, but I thought it just makes the BSOD occur so you can analyze the dmp files.

I have already done the tests you brought up and haven't had anything pop up from them unfortunately. I'm not overclocking because I just haven't had a stable build to really mess with yet, so I should be good there too. The one thing I haven't tried is doing a clean boot, though I've been mainly in safe mode when I'm communicating in these forums as I don't get BSOD's there and can actually get things done diagnostic-wise.

Should I uninstall any drivers before installing that new one?

Uninstall the old one before you install the new one .
