Windows 7: BSODs (No Minidumps, Driver Verifier freezes OS on boot)

BSODs (No Minidumps, Driver Verifier freezes OS on boot)

So I've been getting BSODs lately. I would get the occasional one, but lately I've been able to have them happen without fail when trying to both host and play on a Minecraft server.

I did 2 passes with Windows' 'Diagnose your computer's memory problems' tool and it found no error, so I assume it's a driver issue. I've received so far a 'BUGCODE_USB_DRIVER' BSOD, and a DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL' BSOD. Neither crash produced a minidump, and the last few crashes I don't even get a BSOD, it just crashes and reboots.

I've attempted to run Windows' Driver Verifier, but doing so freezes the OS upon startup, so I can't even do that.

Given that I can get a crash with 100% reliability with hosting a Minecraft server and then attempting to play on it, I assume it's somehow Java/peripheral/video card related, but I can't be sure. I don't get BSODs reliably with most, if any other non-Java games.

I've since uninstalled and re-installed Java and I'd be willing to pay someone to help me fix this issue at this point.

Hello an otter.

Disable Driver verifier.

Follow it: Dump Files - Configure Windows to Create on BSOD
Go to Option Two, Point 2. Download the .reg file and merge it in registry by double clicking it.

Search the .dmp files manually in the default path: C:\Windows\Minidump or %SystemRoot%\Minidump. Post it following the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions.

Seeing the crash dumps, if we suggest you to enable Driver Verifier, go for it then only.

I'll try and make this concise: BSODs occur even while desktop is not in use. Memory_Management and PFN_LIST_CORRUPT is what I remember seeing. Also: IE9, IE10 and IE11 all "stop working" randomly. Chrome - ditto. FF32 - ditto. I've run Memtest86 (10 passes) no errors. The last BSOD was...
