Hi Doober and welcome to Seven Forums

You have three problems that need to be resolved.

***The first and biggest problem is sptd.sys. This is used by Alcohol120 and daemon tools and is a known cause of BSOD's. Use these instructions to remove and replace it

Please remove any CD virtualization programs such as Daemon Tools and Alcohol 120%. They use a driver, found in your dmp, sptd.sys, that is notorious for causing BSODs. Use this SPTD uninstaller when you're done: DuplexSecure - Downloads

You can use MagicDisc as an alternative.

Freeware MagicISO Virtual CD/DVD-ROM(MagicDisc) Overview


***Your second problem is your video driver. This is the cause of all of these BSOD's. Use these instructions to remove and re-install it.

When upgrading your graphic driver you MUST remove all traces of the current driver. In order to do that we recommend using Guru3D - Driver Sweeper

When it is removed then download and install the fresh copy.


***Third. Your AVG. Remove and replace it with Microsoft Security Essentials. In the spirit of total transparency I use AVG on my 3 machines with zero problems.

You may not be that fortunate. I would remove it just to get you back and working as fast as possible

http;//download.avg.com/avgremoverx64.exe

Since all these crashes involved memory exceptions I would test yours with memtest

Download a copy of Memtest86 and burn the ISO to a CD using Iso Recorder or another ISO burning program. Boot from the CD, and leave it running for at least 5 or 6 passes.


Just remember, any time memtest reports errors, it can be either bad RAM or a bad motherboard slot. Test the sticks individually, and if you find a good one, test it in all slots.


Let us know if you need further assistance
