Windows 7: Stop 0x101 and 0x3B, completely random (Kind of)

Stop 0x101 and 0x3B, completely random (Kind of)

I've been having BSODs on this computer (custom build) for a long time.

Before I get started here's some dump files, which I imagine you're just itching to see.!1658

Ok, so these stop errors are pretty much completely random, but there is one surefire way to make it happen. I have no idea why, but any time I open up the game LA Noire, and click 'play' when the launcher comes up, it instantly blue screens probably 4/5 times. The other 1/5 times it'll just crash (the game) before it even launches.

I also am not overclocking, so that can be ruled out. I recently (like two weeks ago) bought another hard drive and am currently running windows off of it, and since the blue screens have continued I guess that's safe to rule out too.

Thanks in advance for any help you guys can offer.

EDIT: Sorry guys just saw the BSOD posting rules, here's the results of running the SF tool:!1663

Update your ATI/AMD display driver.
You can get it from the link in our forum, Latest AMD Catalyst Video Driver for Windows 7, or you may go to AMD Graphics Driver and Software and opt for Automatically Detect and Install the appropriate driver for your card.

During installation, you may opt for advanced installation, and install the display driver only, not the Catalyst Control Center.

Let us know the results, with the subsequent crash dumps, if any.

I got it fixed. Apparently the motherboard I have had an outdated BIOS with a known glitch affecting AMD FX processors, I found how to fix it here:

Thanks for your time and advice, have a great day!
