Windows 7: Random BSOD on startup, error 0x0000001e

Random BSOD on startup, error 0x0000001e

Just started getting the BSOD on a 1 year old Dell laptop. It is completely random only happening occasionally. If the startup is successful I can use the pc for as long as I want with no problems. I ran a hard disk check that came back with no issues so I'm wondering if it is a driver or software issue. Occasionally the top of the BSOD states, "IRQL not less or equal" also.

I have attached the requested zip files that I created as per the forum instructions. If anything else is needed please let me know. Thanks in advance.

It is caused by the storage driver.

I went to that site and downloaded the latest version from 9/13/2012 and it was put into a folder named f6flpy-x64. Is this correct? I restarted my pc afterwards and still got a blue screen.
