Windows 7: Blue Screens o' Death (minidumps provided) (graphics-related?)

24 Jul 2013   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate (x64)
Blue Screens o' Death (minidumps provided) (graphics-related?)

Hi there everyone.
I've recently assembled a wonderful build for my new gaming needs, but I have yet to have it running stable. For the past week, I have been having nothing but random crashes.

Current Operating System: Windows 7 Ultimate (64-bit)

I've re-installed Windows so many times now in attempts to resolve the issues assuming it's related to drivers (terrified of the fact that it might be hardware). I have also attempted to stress-test out the graphics processing unit, have run many tests on the RAM, and have tested the CPU as much as physically possible. No errors have shown up here, but on each installation of Windows, I've found myself with blue screens.
I have ALSO updated my graphics drivers from the AMD website, specifically for my Radeon 7950.

There are so many different combinations of issues that I've become fed-up with playing it by what I read, so I came here.

I've posted any and all of the contents from my "C:\Windows\Minidumps" directory onto my Skydrive, which you may find in the link right below.

You can also find a full system report in the link below.

I'd also like to add that it may not actually be the graphics processing unit, as much as I'd like to think. I've had blue screens ever since I first assembled the computer, which at first, I used the integrated Intel chip.
I still found myself with random blue screens since day one. Though now, it seems to only be at fault of the GPU. That's where the blue screens are most common

Also, for a quick note, the power supply is an OCZ ModXStream Pro (80 Plus) of the 600W variant.
One more note, I HAVE attempted to deal with secdrv.sys (an outdated driver named "Secure Driver") to no avail.

Please assist me at your earliest convenience, I'm very worried that I may have faulty hardware and wish not to replace it if I can avoid it.
Thank you,
- Lildirt

Minidumps will not be enough of information. Post it following the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions.

Well, this.

Alright, I have actually worked a little more with the RAM and come to the conclusion that something simply wasn't set in correctly. I've used both sticks one-at-a-time and have had no issues since doing that. Strange, but it no longer crashes :l

I've been having a few bluescreens the last few days, it seems to happen at random but it was about 2 days apart. So far both of these bluescreens have happened while watching streams on twitch and not when playing games like League of Legends which I find odd or largely a coincidence. Both the...
