BSOD Crashing at random times

My computer is experiencing the BSOD, it happens at least three times a day.
Especially when I am watching a film or playing a game.
My best bet it is either the graphics card or the CPU, but I dont know

BlueScreenView states that its hal.dll and ntoskrnl.exe+70540 (0x00000124)

Current build

OS: Windows 7 64 bit

Video Card: ATI 5770 (1GB) and ATI 5700 (512MB)

Ram: 6GB

CPU: I7 920 (2.66GHZ) 3.2GHZ

Problem Devices:
AODDriver4.1	ROOT\LEGACY_AODDRIVER4.1\0000	This device is not present, is not working properly, or does not have all its drivers installed.
cpuz132	ROOT\LEGACY_CPUZ132\0000	This device is not present, is not working properly, or does not have all its drivers installed.

You may need to re-install cpu-z and then uninstall it to fix the cpu-z problem device.

Problematic Software:
Start Menu\Programs\SlimDrivers	Public:Start Menu\Programs\SlimDrivers	Public
  • We do not recommend automated driver update software. It often finds drivers for devices similar to but not exactly the same as the hardware actually on the system. This can lead to conflicts and blue screen crashes. If you need help finding driver updates for a certain device, please start a thread in Drivers - Windows 7 Forums instead of using software. Driver updates are not always necessary and some updates can actually decrease system stability rather than increase it, so it is usually better not to update unless a device or its driver is causing problems with the system. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

Install all Windows Updates. I notice you do not have Service Pack 1 installed.

The following driver and its software should be removed: ATITool64.sys. It overclocks the graphics card. It is designed to work with older versions of Windows and will likely cause conflicts in Windows 7.

All crashes occurring are likely due to overclocking of your CPU. Please turn off overclocking and turbo boost through your BIOS. Load setup/optimized defaults, save, make sure the turbo boost feature is off if you have one, save again, and exit the BIOS. Stop 0x124 - what it means and what to try
