Windows 7: About to freak out.

About to freak out.


So! this is a tough one, So for almost a year and a half now My computer has been blue screening, probably about 300-400 times, (at the most inconvenient times of course) but here is my problem, I cannot figure out what I am doing wrong, So when it first started I like most people who get a blue screen do just did a fresh reinstall of windows and that did nothing for me, since then I have probably done it 3-4 times my most recent is about a month ago, I uploaded here before and someone told me it was my HDD, So i replaced it, then I went to another forum where they told me it was my ram, so I got a totally new separate brand ram that was on the motherboard manufacturers certified list, then it keep happening, so I thought okay! this is ridonkulus lets just get a new motherboard, So I did that and it did it even more then before! so I returned the mobo to keep my old one to save some money since that wasn't it, Then I was like whatever ill just deal with it. So I went along and then after like 20 BSOD on my new install I was confused and found out how to read minidump files...kinda, atleast found out what crashed it. Then I saw that the most recent 20 had been graphics card, previously a GTX Sonic 460, So I was like okay ill go ATI, probably would work better with my amd CPU anyway right? so I got that....and the past 7 crashes since the new card have all been ATIKMDAG.SYS which is a ati system file. I have tried using older versions and newest versions of the ati driver to no avail and I just cant convince myself that It is just a driver issue after all of that. Any help would just be soooo appreciated, My latest attempt to fix it was going on the motherboard forums as well as GPU and RAM forums to see what voltages my things should be running at and adjusting them in bios, and the system crashed like normal not extraordinarily early or late So i turned them back and hoped for the best. GAh!!!!! sorry for the long post and the rage, just frustrating, since I have replaced the HDD, Ram, GPU, and the mobo to no avail....I honestly think I must have had 2 problems fixed one at one point and gah I dont know. Uploaded the windows BSOD thing you guys use aswell as the raw minidumps if you guys need them! I would legitimately paypal someone 20$ if they could figure this one out!!! gahh! It crashes most often during starcraft 2, which is good because I cant play more then 5 games without it crashing so if I figure it out I will know! Also! I always have temp readers on both my cpu and gpu always and neither have ever gotten hot. Thanks for any info!
