Frequent BSOD while doing normal things + while playing games.

Ill get different kinds of BSOD while doing normal activities and also while playing games. Usually with a few different error messages such as IRQL_LESS_OR_EQUal or Reference by pointer ect. I've tested my hardrive and done multiple mem tests. I'm confident I have conflicting drivers but I need help.

Ill attach the dump files.

Hi JohnAbyss.

What is is WLAN card? Search for possible updates in MediaTek - Downloads Windows

Scan the system for possible virus infection with the following programs.
Test your RAM modules for possible errors.
How to Test and Diagnose RAM Issues with Memtest86+
Run memtest for at least 8 passes, preferably overnight.

Some elements are reported to be failing in the dumps (like bridge.sys) which should not fail. So take the tests and let us know the results.

Ran all your suggestions. Nothing was found. Kinda disappointing. Any other advice?

Oh my bad, also thanks for the quick responses. Much appreciated.

Its a Ralink 802.11n Wireless Lan Card. I don't know the model number. Anyway to check that?

The driver version is 4.0.0.200 and is from 2012 so I probably need to update it.

Yes, you need to update. Ralink moved to MediaTek; but it is hard to get the driver without the model number, which is usually written on the body of the device.

The card says Netis on it and the only number I found on it was m1134101055.

Also, is that the main cause of my BSOD?
