Windows 7: Seemingly random BSODs when browsing the internet

Seemingly random BSODs when browsing the internet

I am posting here because I am going crazy trying to figure out why the computer randomly reboots and the community here seems very helpful. The components in my system are listed below:

Intel i5-2500k with no overclocking
Cooler Master Hyper 212+ (in Pull)
Asrock Z77 Extreme 4 Motherboard
G.Skill 8GB (2*4GB) 240-pin Ripjaws x Memory (1333HZ @ 1.5 volts)
Seasonic M12II – 620w power supply
XFX Radeon HD 7850 2GB
Cooler Master HAF 912 Case
Hitachi 1TB Harddrive SATA
Seagate 1TB Harddrive SATA
Western Digital 250GB Harddrive (primary Drive) SATA
OS: Windows 7 x64 Professional SP1

The Problem:
I am going crazy trying to figure out why the computer randomly reboots. The random reboots occur when browsing the internet, so far it has crashed twice this month. I have been unable to catch the bsod codes because the computer will restart right after the BSODs occur even though I have changed my settings so that it will remain on the blue screen. I think it might be the main drive starting to go bad but I decided to post here asking for help figuring out what the problem is before I went out and bought a new HDD.

If there is any information that you can provide on how to solve this problem it would be greatly appreciated.

Can you roll back your display driver as we've had issues with the latest ones.
You can do it manually by removing all AMD drivers and installing the earlier versions by following these instructions.

Or you can roll back using the device manager.

I have rolled back the display drivers using the device manager. Now it is just a waiting game to see if I get any more BSODs. Thank you for your help.

Seemingly random BSODs
Getting BSODs at random, but it seems as though most of the time it's because I alt tab into or out of a full screen program. This might of course be confirmation bias. Got this when I logged back on, maybe it can help: BCCode: 3b BCP1: 00000000C0000005 BCP2: FFFFF96000164283 ...

Hi, I've been experiencing BSODs for a couple of months, but they seem to be getting more frequent recently. It's mostly when I'm running several programs (but not games), but other than that I haven't noticed anything particular. Sorry not to be more specific - I'd be really grateful for any...

BSOD at seemingly random times. Often when web browsing/playing games.
Hi, I'm new to the forums as a poster, but often find solutions here (thank you). I've been having issues with my computer for a while now, it crashes at unpredictable times. I believe the crashes started about the same time I installed my current video card. Any advice would be much appreciated.

Seemingly random BSODs
For a while I've been having some seemingly random BSODs with my new Win7 Hope Premium install. I did have a severe problem with them a while ago but a reformat seemed to help. Unfortunately BSODs seem to have been returned albeit not as bad as with my previous installation (I guess it is a driver...
