I did not pay attention to the onboard GPU's part My bad.
But as it is not activated, it should not cause any issue. Still what you have done is great step. Let us know how it is running

according to ASUS : M4A78T-E - Motherboards - ASUS

Your on board GPU is a: Integrated ATI Radeon™ HD 3300
PCIe Graphics Card: Nvidia GeForce GTX 470
CPU: AMD Socket AM3 ;Phenom™II /Athlon™II /Sempron™ 100 Series Processors
Chipset: AMD 790GX/SB750

There is only one update for the ATI Radeon, which is dated 2009 and I suspect is the one you have installed,
but you may try to update: M4A78T-E - Motherboards - ASUS

Hope this helps

cheers

Dave

I thought ATI Radeon was made by AMD?

Two days later I start getting BSOD again. Here are the new dump files and updated logs. One of them is a new stop code that I haven't seen before on my system ntfs.sys. The other is one that I have seen very often, ntkrnlmp.exe. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

I'm starting to think I will need a windows recovery seeing that ntfs file system is causing BSoD..

This time it is showing multiple errors in the last two dumps.

Display driver is failing.
Code:
fffff880`0786b6e8  fffff880`04ac920dUnable to load image nvlddmkm.sys, Win32 error 0n2
*** WARNING: Unable to verify timestamp for nvlddmkm.sys
*** ERROR: Module load completed but symbols could not be loaded for nvlddmkm.sys
 nvlddmkm+0x20920d
The latest version is the display driver is often problematic. Install the 314.22 WHQL only.
  • Uninstall All nvidia items in Control Panel > Programs and features
    • 3D Vision Control Driver
    • 3D Vision Driver
    • Graphics Driver
    • HD Audio Driver
    • PhysX
    • nvidia Update
    (Are you using nvidia chipset drivers? If so, dont uninstall anything other than those are listed).
  • Now follow Drivers - Clean Left over Files after Uninstalling
  • Boot normally now. Go to Drivers - Download NVIDIA Drivers, Download 314.22 WHQL. While installing, Select Custom (Advanced) install. In the next page, follow this settings:

Also some ataport errors ate there.

Code:
fffff880`0786ba58  fffff880`010760c5 ataport!AtaPortCompleteRequest+0x21

I see that there is Virtual clone drive installed.

ITEMVALUE
Name Virtual CloneDrive
Manufacturer Elaborate Bytes AG
PNP Device ID ROOT\SCSIADAPTER\0000
Driver c:\windows\system32\drivers\vclone.sys (5.4.4.3, 35.50 KB (36,352 bytes), 1/15/2011 10:21 AM)

The SCSI adapter installed by Virtual CloneDrive may cause this error, so it is suggested to uninstall Virtual CloneDrive.

One more thing in this regard ... ataport.sys is always the most vulnerable to malware called rootkit. For a safety reason, scan the system for possible virus infection with the following programs.
and, Ntfs error is there, too.
Code:

NTFS_FILE_SYSTEM (24)
    If you see NtfsExceptionFilter on the stack then the 2nd and 3rd
    parameters are the exception record and context record. Do a .cxr
    on the 3rd parameter and then kb to obtain a more informative stack
    trace.
The C drive is feeling up. It has 11.72 GB free space left. So better to clear some files. Disable Hibernate. It is not anything must for a desktop, and it will salvage some free space there.

Check your Maxtor 200 GB, too .... do some Disc checks.
  1. Re-seat the sata and power.
  2. Run chkdsk /f/r, following the option two of the tutorial Disk Check
  3. Seatool for dos: SeaTools | Seagate download
    Burn it in a blank cd. boot from the CD, click on "Accept", wait for it to finish detecting the drives, then in the upper left corner select "Basic Tests", then select "Long Test" and let it run.
Let us know the results.

I uninstalled and cleaned all graphics drivers then ran clean install of 314.22 whql nvidia driver. Uninstalled VirtualCloneDrive and ran the scans provided. Both resulted with no threats. I already had hibernate disabled a long time ago to free up space. Seatools for DOS long test and short DST both passed.
I ran chkdsk /f/r and here are the results:

OK, all seems good.
Let us know for any further BSOD.

Was running fine until today (1 full day without BSOD). I compiled the diagnostic logs again with the new dump file. When it BSOD'ed, as it was booting back, it BSOD again at the windows loading screen before desktop loads but that instance didn't get reported in the dump files. Roughly 45-60 minutes later I get another couple BSOD with different probable causes. I'm starting to see inconsistencies with what the probable cause is in the crash dump records. I used to see probably caused by ntkrnlmp.exe quite consistently but now it's getting to be more random. Will keep you updated if more BSOD occur.

Do it as soon as possible.

Also update Realtek network driver. Get it grom Realtek. You are supposed to take the Win7 and WinServer 2008 R2 Auto Installation Program dated 2013/8/1.

Test your RAM modules for possible errors.

That's odd that you don't see those actions done because I uninstalled virtual clonedrive through the control panel then ran both tdsskiller and windows defender offline (from boot). Which of these actions is not showing up in logs? Also, I can't re-uninstall virtualclonedrive of course but I will perform the rootkit scans once more just in case. I will run the memory tests tonight as well even though I ran prime95 over a week ago with all passes. Also, here's another BSOD that occurred as I booted up my PC this afternoon.
