Windows 7: BSOD when launching a game, etc.

BSOD when launching a game, etc.

I am getting the BSOD at random starting at about a week ago when going on photoshop. Subsequently, when launching GTA San Andreas a couple of days ago, the BSOD reappeared. Finally, last night right after exiting Saints Row the Third and right before shutting down the computer, the BSOD appeared again. I've uploaded the zip folder in the attachments (yotten.zip). I am anticipating a BSOD soon as it is almost a daily occurrence ever since, and starting last week. I did run a RAM test this morning and there weren't any errors and in addition I ran the Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor to check for any programs that might have compatability issues and none came up except for Photoshop. At this point I just want to know, according to the logs, what might be causing this and what I can do to resolve it. Any help is very much appreciated. Thanks.

You BSOD is caused by a driver issue. In the event viewer its deemed "PNP driver not found"

Firstly update your Nvidia drivers. If youve updated them recently and its started after that you may want to roll them back to a previous version.

IF that doesnt stop it, update all of your systems drivers from the ASUS's website.

Thank you, (I don't know how to give rep, but perhaps you can tell me). I'm curious as to is it a driver issue with my video card, my motherboard, or is it some other driver?

PNP normally referes to a chipset driver, so its going to be mobo related

You might consider installing a genuine version of Windows 7 - counterfeit installations such as yours use heavily modified code that could well be the source of the BSOD.
Code:
Host Name:                 USER-PC
OS Name:                   Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate 
OS Version:                6.1.7600 N/A Build 7600
OS Manufacturer:           Microsoft Corporation
OS Configuration:          Standalone Workstation
OS Build Type:             Multiprocessor Free
Registered Owner:          user
Registered Organization:   
Product ID:                00426-OEM-8992662-00497
