Windows 7: BSOD 0xa irql_not_less_or_equal Random crashes

BSOD 0xa irql_not_less_or_equal Random crashes

I have had no problems with my computer then when doing a virus scan using Kaspersky, I got the 0xa BSOD. I didn't install any recent drivers to my recollection and thought Kaspersky was the culprit. I uninstalled Kaspersky and thought I would be okay and got another BSOD. I reinstalled all the drivers I could and still got the errors. I tried to figure out the problem, but decided maybe a fresh reformat would do the trick.
The "system info" file was my machine setup before the reformat.

I reformatted Windows, installed the INF first then rest of the drivers after.
Everything seemed to work find until I tried a google hangout and then it crashed again. I cannot identify the problem.
Methods on trying to fix the issue
I ran the ""verifier /standard /all" to see if i could find the problem.
I took out the video card (uninstalled the nvidia drivers)
took out my Xeno pro, Xonar DS, disabled my usb 3.0, even disabled my usb 2.0 (had to use a ps2 keyboard) disabled/enabled onboard video, audio, onboard LAN, restarted my computer with the driver verifier active and still got BSOD's.
Most the minidumps are a result of the verifier.
The first two dmp's ( irql_not_less_or_equa) are system crashes.
I ran 2 passes of a memtest (i will run 8 tonight when i sleep) but the 2 had no errors.
I ran the dm log collector without components in my computer (video card, xeno pro, xonar ds) and USB hub disconnected.
If there is any information I need to include, please let me know.
Thank you for the help.
Chris

Memory test no errors. Is there a way to uninstall drivers one by one only leaving the windows drivers?

Reformatted and reinstalled windows 7 professional and decided to run the verifier command from cmd after every driver. I was able to install the motherboard drivers, audio, video, lan, without issues. When I installed the R.A.T. 7 drivers it immediately caused a BSOD. I thought maybe the drivers were bad (though worked for me well before.) So I installed my backup razer mouse and it caused a BSOD as well.

Could it be possible my USB ports are going bad since it passed any memory tests? I have also had BSOD's while using my webcam (also on usb).

I have 2 months left for my motherboard warranty and assuming the motherboard went bad. A fresh install with all the hardware removed (except for motherboard, ram, cpu, hard drive, powersupply) and still getting BSOD's. I applied for a warranty exchange, hopefully they will approve it.
