BSOD after hours of use randomly

I have not used my computer in a while and I am currently gaming on it. The BSOD does not seem to be tied to that based on when it happens. Last time I dug into it seemed to point to an Ethernet driver? but I do not have anything plugged into the Ethernet.

Thanks for taking the time to look it over Let me know if more info is needed

Those options were selected, as shown in the screen shot below. I did notice that under MSCONFIGs General Tab i had "Selective Startup" enabled. I did change that to normal. What other information or steps should I take to get to the bottom of this?

If there is no crash dump, could you snap it with a camera?

Will this work? I used Blue Screen view and changed the bottom panel to XP Style. Sorry for the delayed post. I was out of the state for a few days.
