Windows 7: Non-specific BSOD

Make sure to install the "Chipset" drivers first. This contains the INF installers for the motherboard hardware and identify them to Windows. They can also set how various firmware options are handled. Drivers use these parameters for functionality.

d'Oh! I missed this this morning going to work. The drivers were downloaded and ready to install and I just installed'em. After reading your post I tried to re-install the non-chipset drivers this evening but it was a hit-and-miss affair, some of the setup routines recognised that they had already been installed. Anyway, I have installed 'em all higgledy-piggledy. I hope it isn't a problem.

fwiw the machine didn't crash today.

Run SFC /scannow from an elevated command prompt using Option Two in the tutorial linked below. I just want to make sure the system files aren't corrupt.
SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

If there's no errors reported, continue below. Otherwise, report back.

Run just the way it is for a day or so to make sure the system is stable. If it remains stable, create a restore point then add ONE of your software additions. Reboot and run that configuration for a day. If it remains stable for the day, create a restore point. If it's still stable, add ONE more and reboot. As long as it remains stable, keep doing this same procedure and allow a day to show the PC is stable. Be sure to create a restore point at the end of each stable day.

If you start getting BSODs, uninstall the last addition and reboot. Run SFC to make sure system files are intact. Skip the problem software addition and try the next. Keep doing this, ONE at a time, until you have all your optional software installed except for the ones that cause BSODs. Make a list of those and report back. Also, run the DM collector again and add the zip file to your post.

Scannow Result

This morning I had a crash and attach report with log of scannow (revealing corruption). Uninstalled the game I installed on Sunday (to provide load). Apart from Firefox 31 there are no other substantial programs installed.

I see you are still having problems with your old friend the Apple Charger. It really needs to go.

So far so good. Still using the Heavyload program to provide artificial work for the computer. Just installed the game I uninstalled a couple of days ago. We'll see what happens.

Artificial loads are good, I use them too sometimes. But, they are not really as good, as far as I'm concerned as actual usage situations.

Update

Machine is still crash-free. I have returned it to my son who is starting to use it when he's not fooling with his tablet (how things have changed). I expect once he gets to work on it any flaws will quickly make themselves know. Just going by my (rough) chronology, I think that Ken's remark about it being primarily a disk problem is likely to have been correct, despite the drive having passed the diagnostics.

It's Saturday afternoon here and I have just created a new restore point. I will have my son keep the machine at least ticking over till next weekend, installing any games that he wants, and if all goes well I will feel confident in pronouncing the patient cured (after two transplants) thanks to the ministrations and wise counsel of you gentlemen.

I will let you know how things are going in, I hope, a week or so.
