Windows 7: BSOD randomly but very frequently

BSOD randomly but very frequently


Recently, I've been getting random BSOD from time to time. Usually it happens once every 2 - 3 hrs or so. It doesn't have to be running anything to crash. Sometimes it just crashes out of the blue. I started having this problem after I moved to my new place. During this whole moving thing, the pc might have been physically damaged but I handled it very carefully so I doubt that it has been severely damaged. Every program is still working fine but I notice a significant degradation in performance of the system. Games' performance is noticeably slower than before. I also updated my graphic card's driver at the same time with the moving so it might also be the cause of the problem.

Welcome aboard.

First of all, you uninstall AVG and install Microsoft Security Essentials - Free Antivirus for Windows.

Then, Look at it.
Name    [00000007] Realtek RTL8168D/8111D Family PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet NIC (NDIS 6.20)
Driver    c:\windows\system32\drivers\rt64win7.sys (7.2.1125.2008, 183.00 KB (187,392 bytes), 3/2/2009 2:05 AM)
You need to upgrade the network driver:

1] download the network card driver from manufactuer's website, Realtek
2] Then reinstall the driver:
3] Click the Start Button, type "devmgmt.msc" (without quotation marks) in the Start Menu Search box and press Enter.
4] Double click to expand "Network adaptors".
5] Right click your network card and click Uninstall.
6] Check "Delete driver software for this device" check box, click OK.
7] Restart the computer

If windows does not auto configure the appropriate drivers at startup, install the downloaded one manually.

Finally, Perform a disc check.
  1. Reseat the sata and power.
  2. Run chkdsk /f/r, following the option two of the tutorial Disk Check
  3. Seatool for dos: SeaTools | Seagate download
    Burn it in a blank cd. boot from the CD, click on "Accept", wait for it to finish detecting the drives, then in the upper left corner select "Basic Tests", then select "Long Test" and let it run.
Let us know the results.

BSOD frequently, randomly, out of nowhere with no new changes
This started happening seemingly out of nowhere. Literally the only thing I did was hook a new midi device up but I've switched that back and the BSOD still occurs about every 10-15 minutes. Just looking for some insight. Attached ZIP.
