Windows 7: BSOD at random times, startup or game playing most often

BSOD at random times, startup or game playing most often

Hello, I've had BSOD happening at random times for the past 9 months. At first I thought it was a cpu problem, and stopped most of my non-necessary startup programs. Recently, this has started happening at random times, usually a few hours after the computer has been on. Tried cleaning my fans and reseating, opened ventilation to make sure it wasn't overheating. I honestly have no clue what to do at this point, can anyone help? Thanks in advance.

No AV? What version of Malwarebytes do you have?

BugCheck A, {1000000dd, 2, 1, fffff80002f060c5}

Probably caused by : ntkrnlmp.exe ( nt!KeStackAttachProcess+115 )
Usual causes:  Kernel mode driver, System Service, BIOS, Windows, Virus scanner, Backup tool, compatibility

I can't see much from the dump file, apart from an illegal page fault occurring.

Run Driver Verifier to scan for any corrupted drivers which may be causing problems, this program works by running various stress tests on drivers, in order to produce a BSOD which will locate the driver; run for least 24 hours:

I would check for any potential BIOS updates for your motherboard, ensure you flash the BIOS, with the exact version and revision number for your motherboard, otherwise you could potentially irreversibly corrupt your BIOS.

Thanks so much, I'm running the drive verifier, nothing yet. I'll be flashing my BIOS when I find the correct updater. I'll report back with more details. Thanks again.

Malewarebytes updated earlier today (database v.2013.08.06.06) before a scan, nothing was found.

Okay thanks, and I meant what edition do you have? The free version which is just a on-demand scanner, or the paid version which is also a real-time protection program.
