BSOD, Seems Random, Tho could be Gfx related

I seem to be having random BSOD's. there doesn't seem to be any one cause. however it does tend to happen more if I'm flipping in and out of different graphical things. (Games, TV card capture, Steam).
but if i choose something and stick with it (planetside 2 for instance) i can play all day and no issues.

I've ran as many updates from MS as i could.
Updated My Gfx card drivers to the latest.

oh and i use Norton (sorry!) for AV

Norton is a very frequent cause of BSOD's.

Replace with Microsoft Security Essentials & the Free version of Malwarebytes, update and make full scans separately:
Uninstallers (removal tools) for common antivirus software - ESET Knowledgebase

Microsoft Security Essentials - Microsoft Windows

Malwarebytes Free
  • Do not start the trial version of MalwareBytes
You may also take a look at:
Good & Free System Security Combination
Use the System File Checker tool and Run Disk Check:
Repair Windows 7 System Files with System File Checker

Run Disk Check in Windows 7 for Bad Sectors & Errors
Make scans with -
TDSSKiller Rootkit Removal Utility Free Download | Kaspersky Lab US

Online Virus Scanner Eset
Reduce items at start up:
Performing a Clean Startup in Windows 7

Add, or Remove Startup Programs in Windows 7
Your Antivirus software is basically whats just needed there.

Drivers
AppleCharger.sys Thu Oct 25 06:51:02 2012
GIGABYTE On/Off Charge driver. Tends to cause BSOD's please remove

AODDriver2.sys Tue Mar 6 15:55:00 2012
AMD Overdrive; also in EasyTune6 for Gigabyte motherboard [br] Known BSOD issues in Win7 Please remove this as well.

Note   Note
Download and install Revo Uninstaller free from here:
Download Revo Uninstaller Freeware
Opt for "Advanced Mode" and uninstall the software (also delete the leftover registry entries).


xusb21.sys Fri Aug 14 04:10:17 2009
Outdated, please update to its latest version available. - Driver Reference Table - xusb21.sys
As for your GFX card, have you tried another card on your system, tried the card on another system?
Does that make a difference?

Test your Hardware for Stability and Heat Problems with Prime95:
Stress Test With Prime95
How to Stress Test a Video Card with Furmark:
Video Card - Stress Test with Furmark
Test your CPU Stability with IntelBurnTest:
CPU - Stress Test Using IntelBurnTest
Quote:
When Furmark fails - there are still several possibilities.
  1. The most common ones -
  2. - Faulty Graphics Card
  3. - Underpowered/Faulty PSU (what is your PSU? Brand? Model?)
  4. - Faulty RAM (this is unlikely as you say the Prime95 Blend test and Memtest didn't show errors?)
  5. - Faulty Motherboard (unlikely - as it's been replaced)
  6. - Faulty CPU (very unlikely - anyway, Prime95 passed)
Monitor hardware temperature with system monitoring software like Speccy or HWMonitor:
Piriform - Speccy

CPUID - HWMonitor
