Windows 7: Experiencing many BSOD, with random errorcodes

Experiencing many BSOD, with random errorcodes

Since the last couple of weeks i have had multiple BSOD wich appear to be random. De errorcode involved changes a lot, and i cant remember seeing the same one twice.
There have been no hardware changes, and i am about to give up and do a fresh reinstall of Windows. Before i do however i thought i try to get some wise people to look at it, just in case it turns out to be something rather simple, and a reinstall is not needed. I have read the "how to post" bit and am including the zip file of the latest BSOD.
Could the problem be due to a failing Graphics card?

Apologies for any grammar mistakes as english is not my native language, but i'll do my best

System device driver fails, most probably it all is caused by memory fault.

Thanks for responding, and taking the time to look into it.

I assume the tests need to be done in this order?
Test will be ran, at the earliest possibility, and i will post the outcome back here...

No need to maintain any order, but I would suggest you to run the memtest at first. If memtest fails to detect any thing, then go for the other two tests.

BSOD Analyse

I believe I may have found your issue. You have the pre-2009 version of ASACPI installed. This is the number one BSOD causer you can find within third party drivers.

Driver Description
Asus ATK0110 ACPI Utility (a known BSOD maker in Win7). Also a part of the Asus PCProbe and AISuite Utilities
Driver Reference Table - ASACPI.sys
ASACPI.sys Thu Jul 16 05:31:29 2009 (4A5E9F11)

start             end                 module name
fffff880`04d9c000 fffff880`04da4000   ASACPI     (deferred)

I really hope you are right, since it sounds like an easy thing to fix. Since i dont use these mentioned programs anymore (and haven't been for a long time) and they are not in my program list anymore. I will try to google it and see what I need to do next, but if you can tell me what would be the best thing, i will not hold it against you

You should be able to find either of the software I mentioned in the description in your Control Panel (Add and Remove Programs).

*Go ahead and delete the software that belongs to the driver.
*See if it's still located in \SystemRoot\system32\DRIVERS\ASACPI.sys, if yes--

Safely Remove Drivers:
To remove this safely, please do the following:
- ensure that you have a bootable DVD to use to get into Startup Repair (the Win8 installation DVD will do). If you don't have one, then use this procedure to create a System Repair disk: System Repair Disc - Create in Windows 8
- set a System Restore point (to use with the System Repair disk if you can't get back into Windows).

- download this free program: Autoruns for Windows Use it to disable any entries that has the name, ASACPI, or in general the mentioned software, see description (by removing the checkmark in the far left column)
- check for any services related to this driver and/or program (use services.msc) and disable them
- check in Device Manager (use devmgmt.msc) for any devices related to this driver and/or program. Make sure to enable the viewing of hidden devices. Uninstall any that you find. DO NOT rescan or reboot yet!
- search your system for the ASACPI.sys driver and rename it to ASACPI.BAD
Then reboot and see if it's removed.

Thanks again for your time and guidance. I have gone trough all the steps mentioned, and I cant find and any remains of the forementioned files and/or programs. When checking the Device Manager however, there is a yellow exlamation mark at an "unknown device" wich according to the Hardware-id is the ATK0110. For now i have disabled the device, since removing it does not seem to do anything. Hopefully there will be no more BSOD for a while, and will I be able to mark this thread as solved!
