BSOD and hangups for last few weeks HELP

Home Build:
Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit
AMD Phenom II x6 1100T 3.3ghz
asus M4A89TD Pro USB3
AMD Radeon HD 6850
8GB Patriot Sector 5 ddr3
OZ 60gb solid state HD
600gb western digital blue HD
1TB western digital black HD
Cooler Master tower

No problems for the past 7 months, then just started Hanging in past month. I lost the solid state drive after windows crash, but had backed up to other Hard drive. Reloaded windows did all updates and bang hangs and crashes. I have played with the power control to make sure I wasn't having supply issue.. not it. Might be Memory but it test good ( yes it is on the qual list for the mother board). Checked Bios version and only new stuff is Beta and I am not going to flash that, so I don't know what is causing the conflict with Windows crashing. please see the attached zip. Thanks for the help

Sorry this was not about how to update drivers but about why I have had several BSODs and system hangups in the last few weeks. I attached the last system dump in the zip file. I did find and incomplete video card "build" and once fixed the system seems alittle more stable, but still freezes some. If I continue to have BSOD I will submitt the crash dump zips no that I know how to save them.

I understand that your post was not about updating drivers. I just wanted to make sure you did not follow the information given by Tank997 since it can lead to system instability, which is the opposite of what we are trying to achieve on this forum.

A windows system process was terminated unexpectedly. Possible causes are hard disk errors... System file corruption... Viruses... Lack of Windows updates... Drivers...

Check for data corruption first:
  • If you are overclocking any hardware, please stop.

  • Run Disk Check with both boxes checked for all HDDs and with Automatically fix file system errors checked for all SSDs. Post back your logs for the checks after finding them using Check Disk (chkdsk) - Read Event Viewer Log.
    For any drives that do not give the message:
    Windows has checked the file system and found no problems
    run disk check again as above. In other words, if it says:
    Windows has made corrections to the file system
    after running the disk check, run the disk check again.

  • Run SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker up to three times to fix all errors with a restart in between each. Post back if it continues to show errors after a fourth run or if the first run comes back with no integrity violations.

OK All I found my problem. It was a Bad OCZ solid state drive. THe drive would actually go in and out very fast and cause the mother board to have to find it every few seconds. The caused windows to fail or BSOD and Hard Hang. I removed the drive and am RMAing it but no problems now that SSD is gone.
