Windows 7: Random BSOD 0x25 (Idle+InUse)

Random BSOD 0x25 (Idle+InUse)

Hello,

I've uploaded the necessary files along with this post.

I put my computer together earlier in January part by part. Each part was installed at the same time and all the drivers and most software was installed on the first day of use. (I have since reinstalled a number of drivers.) Each component of the computer is listed in my profile.

Notably: I am using a 450W Rosewill CAPSTONE power supply, the stock Intel fan, and the thermal paste already spread on the surface. I'm aware that 450W might seem low, but according to an online calculator even at max load I'll should have 45W to spare.

I've had several BSODs. Almost every single BSOD has a different error code associated with it. They happen ~daily. They occur if the computer is under load, or if the computer is idle. Only the most recent BSOD has appeared to have been related to an action of mine. The most recent BSOD occurred while alt-tabbing back into battlefield 4 from the desktop.

Efforts I've completed in an attempt to fix the problem:
Run check disk on the SSD and HDD. (Clean disks)
Run memtest86 with both memory sticks in the motherboard for 12 hours, 7 passes. (No errors.)
Run windows memory test 2 passes (No errors
Run System File Checker (validated)
Run windows update (Updated)
Run spybot search and destroy complete scan (safe)
Run Microsoft Security Essentials complete scan (safe)
Installed updated versions of every driver I could find:
-Chipset + Other related LGA 1150 drivers from Intel
-A few from Gigabyte's website
-NVidia graphics drivers
Run Driver Verifier (Noteworthy)

Noteworthy Driver Verifier:
When I ran driver verifier I did indeed get a blue screen:
Bug Check Code: 196

What was displaced on the blue screen:
"0xC4 (0xF6, 0x190, 0xfffffa8010ceeb30, 0xfffff8800f4a80a1)

The faulty driver currently on the kernel stack must be replaced with a working version
nvlddmkm.sys"

I searched around and found that driver seemed to be a problem for some people using NVidia products. I disabled driver verifier. I uninstalled everything related to NVidia. I used Guru3D Driver sweeper to be certain everything was uninstalled. I then reinstalled the bare minimum NVidia drivers necessary to use my GeForce GTX 760.

-

I'm not sure what to think now. I suspect that the issue is one of these:
-Faulty Graphics Card
-Not enough power
-Too hot
-Another driver issue I don't understand

I don't think that the issue has to do with heat or too little power since it occurs when the computer is idle and when the computer is under load. However, I don't really have any evidence that the problem can be traced back to the graphics card.

Any help would be appreciated!

Ben

Turn OFF Driver Verifier. When you next get a BSOD, up;load just that single dmp file.

DRIVER_VERIFIER_DETECTED_VIOLATION (c4)
A device driver attempting to corrupt the system has been caught.  This is
because the driver was specified in the registry as being suspect (by the
administrator) and the kernel has enabled substantial checking of this driver.
If the driver attempts to corrupt the system, bugchecks 0xC4, 0xC1 and 0xA will
be among the most commonly seen crashes.

Well, only 2 of the dump files I uploaded were caused by driver verifier. Here is the most recent one it was not caused by driver verifier. The error was a "bad_pool_error."

I will leave my computer on today and when I come home and it has BSODed I will upload that file.

Thanks,
Ben

OK. No driver is blamed.

Lets turn ON Driver Verifier now. Hopefully your system crashes in a short space of time. Then reboot, turn verifier OFF again, and upload that new dmp file here again.

Okay. I turned on verifier.

This crash happened while the computer was idle and I was away from home. It appears to be the same driver as when I used verifier the last time. It seems the driver was reinstalled when I reinstalled the nVidia drivers.

Let me know what you think... (Does this imply a bad graphics card?)
