Windows 7: Random freezes - Seven Professional x64

OK So I'm not really sure how exactly I'm going to remove it. I don't have much proficiency in messing around with hardware, not to mention it's pretty tight in there and it looks like it's fixed by a couple screws as well (no, it's not integrated)

Anything else we could try?

Try disabling the Sound card device in Device Manager.

I installed all of these in rapid succession soI can't really remember which one was installed last.
Start over (Clean install with OEM motherboard drivers, Windows updates and hardware drivers ONLY) and follow the advice on post #45. Do NOT load McAfee, Symantec (Norton) or AVG! Use anything else but we recommend MSE because we know it works well with Windows 7 and it's not bloatware.

Do not load any additional software or drivers until Windows completes it's housework. This could take an hour or more. The only drive activity you should see is a blip about every second. Reboot, then run the BSOD utility selecting MSINFO and post it here.

Add ONE software package and check for stability. Reboot then add ONE more and so on (Reboot, add one, check stability). If you get a freeze, run the BSOD utility selecting MSINFO and post it here. If you get a BSOD, run the Grab All and post it.

So in summation, your next post here should be an MSINFO upload showing a clean/fresh install with nothing else running.

Thanks for jogging my memory Ken, as I had given this advice a week ago which apparently was ignored.

I don't get any BSODs. Last one I got I was running driver verifier and apparently the driver wasn't the problem.

EDIT: Look, I have already done that (I installed the hardware drivers all at once, then proceeded to install software one at a time. Exceptions were Firefox, and Thunderbird, and only these. The rest was installed later on), and I think either you misunderstood me or I misunderstood you. (this was probably the second case, anyways, so I guess I'll try it again this weekend or so) Either case, I'll try it again if I have done it wrong. I still haven't installed McAfee or any other AV.

EDIT 2: I'm sorry if it seemed like I ignored you; I didn't, I just think it'd be too time consuming for now. Besides, I'll install a Linux distro to make sure it is/it isn't software. Plus, it's just too random. Sometimes it stays stable for some days, and sometimes it hangs 3 times in an hour. But what's the relation? What could possibly be the trigger?

I reinstalled the BIOS (won't say updated, I already had the latest version). Let's see if that works

EDIT: Did not work :/

EDIT 2: Will install the Linux distro this weekend and will update.

Just something I thought might be worth a try, but I don't want to screw this up. Do you guys think installing the newest NVIDIA Beta driver could work?

I would prefer a stable release...
Beta drivers are "incomplete" version...could lead to future problems

Have you followed our advice or the steps in Clean Reinstall to install only the drivers pushed through by Windows Updates, then after all rounds of Updates and restarts import only drivers missing in Device Manager?

Only then install programs slowly over time with enough space in between to gauge whether each program is causing the problem.
