BSOD Randomly on a new PC Windows 7 pro 64-bit

I am also getting this error repeatedly but at different times. This is a brand new computer with hardly anything loaded as yet except for the drivers supplied with motherboards and graphics cards etc.
Please can someone assist, it would be very much appreciated.

This is a very common bugcheck.  Usually the exception address pinpoints
the driver/function that caused the problem.  Always note this address
as well as the link date of the driver/image that contains this address.
Some common problems are exception code 0x80000003.  This means a hard
coded breakpoint or assertion was hit, but this system was booted
/NODEBUG.  This is not supposed to happen as developers should never have
hardcoded breakpoints in retail code, but ...
If this happens, make sure a debugger gets connected, and the
system is booted /DEBUG.  This will let us see why this breakpoint is
Arg1: ffffffffc0000005, The exception code that was not handled
Arg2: fffff880017ebc3a, The address that the exception occurred at
Arg3: fffff8800357dd78, Exception Record Address

I would try uninstalling avast for now, just until we rule a few things out. I suggest using MSE as your antivirus. it can be downloaded here : Microsoft Security Essentials - Free Antivirus for Windows

2. The rest are not conclusive or beneficial really. They all point to windows drivers which have a very very very very very small chance of being the problem. Check the seating on the graphic card, just to be sure.

Also run this and upload the latest dump file you recieve : Driver verifier: Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable

Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit 7601 Multiprocessor Free Service Pack 1

Ok well the previous one before the last one is MBfilt64.sys : Realtek HiDefinition Audio driver (file labelled as Creative Audio Driver)
For this make sure you have the right drivers from the asrock site, etc. If you do then download the correct ones for the realtek hidef audio driver here : Realtek
The latest one was iaStor.sys : Intel Storage drivers
For this one, check the asrock site one last time and make sure you have the right drivers, if you do then use this :
*will need java to run*
Also to top this, i would like you to open "device manager" and screenshot or note any that have a yellow mark next to them.

Microsoft Windows 7 Professional 64-bit SP1

So yesterday when I opened the case to insert new RAM, I saw that your first intuition was correct and the video card EVGA GTX550Ti was not seated properly, so I corrected this without changing anything. The computer started ok and ran well all day, However when I came in this AM, Blue Screen again. I made the dump and changed the RAM which did not help as it just gave another series of bluescreens again. I could only boot to safe mode and in safemode I created another dump, so the event files (2) are from that safe mode dump.
I will go ahead and update every driver I can find, but it seems the error is different every time. After safe mode it started ok again.

Aha we got something new this time. In 1 of them the audio driver was blamed again. two of them contain literally nothing, and were probably corrupted. Another blames ISCTD64.sys : Intel Smart Connect Technology Driver
Now when put together one of the original ones was :
iaStor.sys : Intel Storage drivers
The new one is
ISCTD64.sys : Intel Smart Connect Technology Driver :
Seems to be an intel problem. Now one thing on the latest one (driver right above this), when looking at the driver reference table it says this is not on the site and to check with the oem. So again double check them drivers and if you have all the right ones try using this :
Update intel drivers: Intel Driver Update Utility

Please visit this website:
ASRock > Z77 Pro3

There you will find the latest drivers which are SPECIFICALLY for your motherboard.

Take close note that the VIDEO driver was updated recently, 7 July of this year.

MS Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64-bit

To save me and passerbys who just might have an idea for you,
Help us to Help You.

Completely and fully fill in your system specs and here is how:
Update your SevenForums System Specs
User CP (located on the top menu bar) |
Your Profile | Edit System Spec
(left-hand column)

To gather info, use Speccy (my favorite) or SIW or System Info

In the System Manufacturer Block, enter:
Manufacturer and Model OR Custom build.
ADD the word laptop, desktop, netbook or tablet.
For example:
Toshiba Satellite L305D notebook.

Provide full windows version info, for example:
MS Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64-bit

Use the Other Info block for Optical Reader,
Mouse, touchpad, wifi adapter, speakers, monitor, etc

Scroll down and click on SAVE CHANGES.

With Speccy, you can select with your mouse/touchpad info from the display
and paste that info into your specs.

SIW is a marvelous program, but the free version does not offer
this capability.

In case, your wondering I would like to check on a couple of your system components and those filled in specs will do the job for me.
