Windows 7: Laptop frequently BSODing after installing SSD

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Laptop frequently BSODing after installing SSD

Okay, so a few weeks ago I decided my laptop HDD was way too slow for human use so I upgraded to a SSD; now after doing a clean install of Windows 3 times it continues to crash frequently.
-Laptop: HP Pavillion DV6 3080tx
-OS: Windows 7 Ultimate x64 Retail
-SSD: Intel 520 128GB

-BSODs with error 0x000000f4
-BSODs usually 5-10 minutes after startup (including when in safe mode)
-Tried doing a clean install 3 times now but it won't stop
-Tried updating firmware for SSD but MoBo won't recognise the firmware bood disc as anything useful when I boot from the DVD drive
-BlueScreenView says driver ntskrnl.exe is the driver behind it

Please help!

Win 8 Release candidate 8400

One of the 3 files necessary for windows continue crashed in virtually all of these. I would run a system file check to verify (and hopefully repair) the OS files. I would also run a malwarebytes scan just to rule that out.

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

How to use the System File Checker tool to troubleshoot missing or corrupted system files on Windows Vista or on Windows 7

Please download the free version of Malwarebytes.
Update it immediately.
Do a full system scan
