Windows 7: BSOD Happening Randomly

BSOD Happening Randomly

For about a week now my computer has started to 'blue screen' for no reason.
It happens at random times, and also happens randomly no matter what I'm doing (Even if the computer is just sitting there with nothing running)

Hi Fatherdeath.

Test your RAM modules for possible errors.
How to Test and Diagnose RAM Issues with Memtest86+
Run memtest for at least 8 passes, preferably overnight.

If it start showing errors/red lines, stop testing. A single error is enough to determine that something is going bad there.

If it does not show any error, enable Driver Verifier to monitor the drivers.
Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable
Run Driver Verifier for 24 hours or the occurrence of the next crash, whichever is earlier.

information   Information
Why Driver Verifier:
It puts a stress on the drivers, ans so it makes the unstable drivers crash. Hopefully the driver that crashes is recorded in the memory dump.

How Can we know that DV is enabled:
It will make the system bit of slow, laggy.

warning   Warning
Before enabling DV, make it sure that you have earlier System restore points made in your computer. You can check it easily by using CCleaner looking at Tools > System Restore.

If there is no points, make a System Restore Point manually before enabling DV.

Tip   Tip

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

An attempt was made to access a pageable (or completely invalid) address at an
interrupt request level (IRQL) that is too high.  This is usually
caused by drivers using improper addresses.
If a kernel debugger is available get the stack backtrace.

Did memory test and nothing showed, about to enable Driver Verifier now. Hopefully this will show something.

Not sure if this will help in any way possible, but the last time I got BSOD. This is the information I got

No it will not help you in any way possible.

The only thing that can help you to report a BSOD following the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions.

I used that guide, posted and so far have done the memory test like you said to
I'm now running in DV and so far nothing has crashed, just waiting I guess.

Okay, so the computer has been up for around a total of 15-2 hours now with DV. Twice so far while just browsing the internet my pc has frozen still with the image (which I have attached below)
The only way to get it off is by restarting the PC.
I'm starting to think it may be the graphics?
Not too sure so I did another test (which I've linked below too)
Any ideas?

So, my computer has been on now for over 24 hours without any BSOD. The only thing I have run into was the screen freezing as I mentioned in the post above. What do I do now?

Disable Driver Verifier, and stress test the Graphics Card using Furmark.

Stress tested, and it passed :/
Not sure what else.. I guess I'll close this until it blue screens again?
