Windows 7: Multiple random BSODs, different error each time

Multiple random BSODs, different error each time

I've got a custom built PC and since I built it's occasionally BSODed but I never got around to fixing it, and they usually happen about once a month so they weren't too annoying.
I've had 6 since Wednesday so something is definitely wrong, it also happens completely randomly, I've left it on desktop for like 5 minutes twice and BSODed both times.

Upload a screenshot of crystal disk infoRun Disk Check on your hard disk for file system errors and bad sectors on it:Hard drive test both short and long with: Also the DOS version of:Take memtest. Run for 8 passes and test each stick in a know good slot for an additional 6 passes.

RAM - Test with Memtest86+
Guide to using Memtest86+ - Geeks to Go Forums

The goal is to test all the RAM sticks and all the motherboard slots.

Check your motherboard manual to ensure the RAM sticks are in the recommended motherboard slots. Some motherboards have very specific slots required for the number of RAM sticks installed.

If you get errors, stop the test and continue with the next step.

1. Remove all but one stick of RAM from your computer (this will be RAM stick #1), and run Memtest86 again, for 7 passes.
Be sure to note the RAM stick, use a piece of tape with a number, and note the motherboard slot.
If this stick passes the test then go to step #3.

2. If RAM stick #1 has errors, repeat the test with RAM stick #2 in the same motherboard slot.
If RAM stick #2 passes, this indicates that RAM stick #1 may be bad. If you want to be absolutely sure, re-test RAM stick #1 in another known good slot.
If RAM stick #2 has errors, this indicates another possible bad RAM stick, a possible motherboard slot failure or inadequate settings.
3. Test the next stick of RAM (stick #2) in the next motherboard slot.
If this RAM stick has errors repeat step #2 using a known good stick if possible, or another stick.
If this RAM stick has no errors and both sticks failed in slot#1, test RAM stick #1 in this slot.
4. If you find a stick that passes the test, test it in all the other motherboard slots.

If Part 2 testing shows errors, and all tests in Part 3 show errors, you will need to test the RAM sticks in another computer and/or test other RAM in your computer to identify the problem.

In this way, you can identify whether it is a bad stick of RAM, a bad motherboard, or incompatibility between the sticks.

Thanks for getting back to me!
If there is a problem with Broadcom 802.11 USB Network Adapter Driver, should I update those drivers?
I've uploaded the crystaldisk screenshots and the msinfo.
I ran a disk check on my ssd (my boot drive) before and there were no errors as far as i know since Windows just came back on.
I'll run memtest when I go to sleep which is in about an hour, although I did run Windows Memory Diagnostic before and got no errors.
SeaTools is running the long test now on my HDD, it passed the short tests.

It might be worth mentioning that I use a Razer Lycosa keyboard, and I saw a post that said they were notorious for BSOD, so I removed those drivers. I haven't had a BSOD since then but that was only about an hour ago.

Thanks for the snips.
Yes avoid the Razer Lycosa Keyboard, and update the broadcom drivers. Did you get the latest firmware for the SSD?
Keep us posted

Ran memtest overnight on one stick of RAM, no errors with 7 passes, will test the other one tonight if the BSODs continue.
There is no newer firmware for the Corsair Nova 2 series SSD according to the official Corsair forums, also the Broadcom driver I have installed is actually the latest one, so I did a complete re install of the driver as per this forum post on here.
No BSODs since I uninstalled the Razer Lycosa driver, so far so good, I'll keep you posted and thanks very much for the help!

I just got another BSOD a few minutes ago whilst playing Battlefield 3, I've uploaded another data archive.
Something I've noticed that might be worth mentioning, when my pc restarts afterwards, my Netgear N300 wireless usb network adapter (the hardware for the driver I reinstalled) isn't recognised, and I have to unplug it and plug it back in.

Okay I removed it. What is Intel Rapid Storage for? Do I need it?
I'll re install my graphics card drivers now.
