multiple BSOD error codes at startup, Windows Update even when idle

My Win 7 Pro is constantly crashing. Sometimes at startup ( in normal mode, not in safe mode ), every time at Windows Update and even when system is idle ( in normal and safe mode ).
Some of my error codes are: 0x7E; 0x8E; 0x50; 0x7F; 0xC2; 0x0A; 0xD1

Wow thats a lot of dumps, first up of you are OCing in any way stop and return all bios settings to default

Please update your system specs, if your not sure look here

OK had a quick scan and theres a massive variation of codes and causes there too many dumps to go into them all in detail
A few things that stand out are there are lots of errors relating to info input & output and disk activity so i recommend you run some hardware tests and i think you may have a problem with a disk drive, try these and report back on their outcomes
Hard Drive Diagnostic Procedure
RAM - Test with Memtest86+

Also you have some bad programs/drivers installed
First up you have the oldest driver i have ever seen installed on a win 7 system 1996 wow heres a list of all the stuff you need to update ( the first two need to be gone IMO if its something you cant update but you use uninstall you can reinstall later after we have cured your BSOD and regained a stable system)
giveio.sys 04/04/1996 02:33:25 this is a driver relating to speedfan, uninstall it and install newer copy if you wish
ASACPI.sys 13/08/2004 02:52:52 this is a driver associated with an asus mobo utility, uninstall it
ADIHdAud.sys 16/01/2007 16:41:49 SoundMAX Digital HD Audio Driver
nvm62x32.sys 17/10/2008 21:00:39 nVidia Ethernet Networking Driver (nForce chipset driver)
netr28u.sys 26/02/2009 02:42:42 Ralink RT2870 series USB802.11n Wireless Adapter Driver (you may have a different manufacturer)
a014p1am.SYS 21/03/2009 14:47:30 Not sure what this is google doesnt find either ?????????

You also have daemon tools installed you need to remove it as it includes a driver named sptd.sys and that is a known cause of BSODs on win 7 uninstall program then run tool here to see if driver is gone, if driver is already uininstalled when you run tool the uninstall button will be grayed out/not clickable

I would advise you clear your minidump folder (move them all to a new location) and any new BSODs you get after you run all the above upload seperately by running SF tool again

I have set BIOS setting to default. Hard drives pass diagnostic.
giveio.sys - uninstalled
ASACPI.sys - i can't find a way to uninstall it
ADIHdAud.sys - uninstalled
nvm62x32.sys - updated to 15.58 nforce driver from nvidia website
netr28u.sys - i have installed dlink driver from official dlink website

i deleted files from minidump folder and attach further crashes in zip file.
i uninstalled daemon tools, but button "uninstall" from SPTD tools wasn't gray, so I used it.

ASACPI.sys description from driver reference table "Asus ATK0110 ACPI Utility (a known BSOD maker in Win7). Also a part of the Asus PCProbe and AISuite Utilities"
Just memtest to go thats an overnighter, are the new dumps from before or after above changes ?

edit - files above still have deamon tools installed, just want new ones now after recommended actions

I have no Asus utilitied installed, but there are ASACPI.sys files in Windows folder. Should i delete them?
I uninstalled daemon tools with Windows Control Panel and then i clicked uninstall at SPTD tool.
RAM passed memtest after 11 passes.
What else can i do?
Do you think BIOS upgrade will help?

Below i add another dump file, code 0x7E with file dxgmms1.sys, crash ocured during Windows Update.

Bios update wouldnt hurt as long as you know what your doing, doing it wrong or getting problems mid process can brick your mobo, recommend you dont use windows based updater in case of blue screen during, try the DOS based/bios based utility if there is one. If your not sure post back and i will check it out for you.

Dont worry to much about that asacpi driver maybe from something else or a leftover best not to delete just in case, i thought you had mobo utility installed so its not so bad.

Next time you get a crash just keep running the tool and uploading dumps. Please only send new ones now since the above changes have been done, clear out the C:\windows\minidump folder to another location then the SF tool wont scoop them all :)

Now i have no idea what to do.
I erased partitions, formated whole hard drive and installed new Win 7. For 10 minutes I get 3 BSOD. Is it problem with hardware? Maybe a virus? I start getting BSOD after I tried to windows update.

Here are dumps from those BSODs

Looks like you may have a hardware issue if its bsod on clean install, just to clarify, what HDD tests did you run, did you download maufacturers bootable diagnostic and load from disk
Cant get any of your dumps to load properly but they are all pointing towards memory corruption but that can be ram, hdd or gfx memory or even a bad driver passing bad info to memory

Run hardware diagnostics again

I run Seatools from bootable USB and my HDs are ok ( i did full test ). My RAM is also ok ( i did memtest from bootable CD and i left PC working for night, it checked 20 passes, all without error ). I checked GPU memory with Download Video Memory stress Test 1.7.116 Free - An application that performs different benchmarks on your system - Softpedia using bootable CD and it checked no errors, but with Windows working program Video Memory Stress checked GPU memory and I get NO PASS COMPLETED. I attach log file from Video Memory Stress Test to zip below. A short time after checking GPU memory Win 7 crashed with IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL and now it crashes every time at normal start up and even at Windows Startup Repair (crash PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPADED_AREA ntfs.sys ), only safe mode is now accessible.
I also upgraded BIOS to Version 1701 which i downloaded from official ASUS web site.
What can I do now? Is it problem with GPU, i will get spare one from friend to check.

TBH i was expecting one of the hardware tests to fail, that 2nd gfx test that failed is interesting but im not familiar with that program so not sure what the log shows but i suspect it was just incapable of running as opposed to showing any failure
Have you been monitoring temperatures while running checks, you could try these tests whle checking temps
Hardware - Stress Test With Prime95
Video Card - Stress Test with Furmark

Also i dont know if your aware but you can download an updated installer including SP1 to use with your product key, have a look at this tutorial, i know its may not be totally relevant to your type of install but the bits that do apply will start you with a more updated system
Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7

The dumps are still all over the place blaming a variety of different things, will have a good look through everything and post back if i find anything

Just having a thought it is possible some of your hardware is not compatible can you give full specs, did you check your ram is on the qvl list for your mobo etc
