Code:
BugCheck D1, {a, 2, 0, fffff880010264c5}

Probably caused by : storport.sys ( storport! ?? ::FNODOBFM::`string'+b85 )
Code:
Usual causes:  Device driver
This bugcheck indicates that a device driver (kernel-mode) attempted to access a pageable region of memory at a IRQL level which was too high.

Code:

Your nVidia nForce network driver is rather outdated also, and seems to be a potential cause, which update the driver from your motherboard support page, it may included as part of the chipset driver package.

Hi, I have the latest nvidia driver and i don't see any newer drivers for my motherboard than what are installed. I have also been experiencing lots of freezes, sometimes for a minute then everything will work again, and other times it will completely freeze and I will have to reboot by holding the power.

I formatted my hard drive and installed my drivers and did the windows updates last night. I turned it on today and got another bsod for driver IRQL not less or equal. No freezes yet but I'm sure they will come tonight when I use my computer more.

Any other suggestions to try would be much appreciated! Thanks

Upload the new dump file using the same tool as before, the nVidia chipset is known to be very problematic with Windows 7.

The bsod I got after the fresh install isn't on here, (I had to change some settings for it to save) but here's the rest of it, I will post another one with a dump file when it occurs again.

This .zip is empty from dumps.
But I looked above and saw you're using the latest nVidia driver which is normally a good thing
except when nVidia kinda screws-up this driver is faulty, revert back to 314.22.

I believe the chipset is more a problem at the moment, nVidia chipsets are known to not work well with Windows 7, so it may be better to test with a different motherboard if available.
