Windows 7: Seemingly random BSOD during gaming

Seemingly random BSOD during gaming

Hi there, I've got a problem that I just can't seem to fix, so I figured it was time to ask for help. I've recently replaced my HD, RAM, and motherboard and when I play World of Warcraft, randomly the screen will lock up and eventually lead me to a BSOD. I believe I've updated all of the drivers, but I've noticed the BSOD's have a couple different messages.

Here are the dump files I was able to find. Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you!

4 memory dumps generated from 10 Feb 10 to 27 Feb 10:
1 STOP 0x1A - more info here: BSOD Index
3 STOP 0x7A - more info here: BSOD Index
The first one blames ntkrpamp.exe - but has NTFS.SYS involvement in the stack text
The second one blames fileinfo.sys - but also has NTFS.SYS involvement in the stack text
The third one has an error that translates to: Device not connected
The fourth one has an error that translates to: No such device

So, we're most likely looking at a hardware error here - and the most likely devices are the hard drive and memory. Please try these free, bootable diagnostics to test those components:
H/W Diagnostics:
Please start by running these bootable hardware diagnostics:
Memory Diagnostics (read the details at the link)
HD Diagnostic (read the details at the link)

Also, please run one of these free, independent online malware scans to ensure that your current protection hasn't been compromised: Malware (read the details at the link)
Also, please remove or update these older drivers that were loaded at the time of the crash. Don't use Windows Update or the Update drivers function of Device Manager.
Please use the following instructions to locate the most currently available drivers to replace the one's that you uninstall OR remove:
How To Find Drivers:
- search Google for the name of the driver
- compare the Google results with what's installed on your system to figure out which device/program it belongs to
- visit the web site of the manufacturer of the hardware/program to get the latest drivers (DON'T use Windows Update or the Update driver function of Device Manager).
- if there are difficulties in locating them, post back with questions and someone will try and help you locate the appropriate program.
- - The most common drivers are listed on this page: Driver Reference
- - Driver manufacturer links are on this page: Drivers and Downloads

Here's the older drivers. Please pay particular attention to any dated 2007 or earlier:
wg111v2.sys  Mon Mar 27 05:53:27 2006 - NETGEAR WG111v2 54Mbps Wireless USB 2.0 Adapter NT Driver -  (NOTE:  There aren't any Win7 drivers available for this device, please use the Compatibility Mode instructions (below) when installing them.  Also, there's no guarantee that they'll work properly when installed)
AegisP.sys   Fri Jun 10 10:29:52 2005 - AEGISP.SYS is related to AEGIS Client Meetinghouse Data Comm or Cisco -
AsIO.sys     Mon Dec 17 04:10:20 2007 - Asus PCProbe Utility -
See NOTE in code box above for wg111v2.sys
Compatibilty Mode Driver Installation:
1 - Download the latest driver from the manufacturer's website.
2 - Uninstall the current drivers using the Control Panel...Programs and features...Uninstall a program applet. Then verify that the driver/device has been removed in Device Manager
3 - Right click on freshly downloaded driver installation file and select "Properties"
4 - Select the Compatibility tab - and do the following:
- Click on the "Change settings for all users" button
- Click on the box to select "Run this program in compatibility mode for" and then select Windows Vista Service Pack 1
- Click on the box to select "Run as administrator"
- Click on OK to exit all the dialogs
5 - Right click on the driver installation file and select "Run as administrator"
6 - Let it install and see if that stops the BSOD's.
Also, here's an article on adding legacy devices to Win7: Configure Legacy Devices to Run on Windows 7
