I updated the previous post with the zip file from the SF tool, is that data uploaded wrong?
Thanks for the help.
The information obtained from the latest crash dump:
Code:
fffff880`035294f8  fffff880`07e7bd57Unable to load image Rt64win7.sys, Win32 error 0n2
*** WARNING: Unable to verify timestamp for Rt64win7.sys

I'm not sure what that means, but it seems like its blaming my network drivers again. I uninstalled them and reinstalled the newest ones from Realtek's site (which I had already done, but maybe they've changed).

Strangely, uninstalling/reinstalling the drivers caused my network card to claim that there was no network cable plugged in. It no longer recognizes the cable that I've been using for months, but is accepting a different cable.

Yes, it means that the realtec NIC is still active and causing BSODs in he same way. And it nullifies your statement that realtek NIC is disabled, unfortunately.

I disabled the onboard NIC in BIOS, but had to install a PCI-E NIC in order to keep using my computer, it seems the new one also uses the Realtek chipset, and the same driver. The fact that I'm still getting the issue with a different NIC makes me think its a software rather than hardware issue though.

Most possible.

But it makes the situation complicated at the first look. Anyway, update the driver following post #2 and let us know for any further issue.

Yeah, unfortunately the driver update didn't fix it. BSOD after 4 days of uptime. Using "WhoCrashed" it says the last crash (and several before it) are due to ntoskrnl.exe, but that's the core of windows, so I guess it could be anything.

Post it following the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions.

Code:
BugCheck D1, {fffff88041a86c9c, 2, 8, fffff88041a86c9c}

Probably caused by : tcpip.sys ( tcpip!TcpPartitionGetNextExpirationTick+101 )

Followup: MachineOwner
---------
In short, it reports a network driver failure. No adequate reason of it, as your network driver is the latest version. Something else might be playing in the background.

You need to enable driver verifier. But before enabling it, alter the display driver a bit, cause it is failing too.
Code:
fffff800`00b9c508  fffff880`07a46b36Unable to load image atikmpag.sys, Win32 error 0n2
*** WARNING: Unable to verify timestamp for atikmpag.sys
*** ERROR: Module load completed but symbols could not be loaded for atikmpag.sys
 atikmpag+0x45b36
Uninstall your installed latest version of the display driver.
Then clean up any possible leftover.
Then install version 13.9 WHQL only.
Lately we have seen a lot of issues with the latest 13.12 WHQL AMD Catalyst.

Now enable Driver Verifier to monitor the drivers.
Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable
Run Driver Verifier for 24 hours or the occurrence of the next crash, whichever is earlier.

information   Information
Why Driver Verifier:
It puts a stress on the drivers, ans so it makes the unstable drivers crash. Hopefully the driver that crashes is recorded in the memory dump.

How Can we know that DV is enabled:
It will make the system bit of slow, laggy.

warning   Warning
Before enabling DV, make it sure that you have earlier System restore points made in your computer. You can check it easily by using CCleaner looking at Tools > System Restore.

If there is no points, make a System Restore Point manually before enabling DV.

Tip   Tip

Let us know the results, with the subsequent crash dumps, if any.

I did all of this and ran DV, selecting all non-MS drivers. The computer BSOD before the login prompt, both times with IRQL_NOT_LESS_EQUAL. It did not generate a log of the crash though. I am going through now and selecting smaller sets of drivers to try and find which driver caused me to be unable to boot. Is there a place I should be looking for the "results" of DV? Would it have recorded info about those crashes that is not a standard BSOD crash dump?
