ntoskrnl.exe has caused BSOD

I have had 4 BSOD.
Today, I was streaming using to Twitch with QuickSync on a Intel i3 2120.
Boom a BSOD. I was also downloading something on steam also.
I have noticed something very interesting in the "BlueScreenView" Application.
3 of the .dmp files have been caused by the "ntoskrnl.exe"
My 2nd BSOD cause was caused by "PLTGC.sys"
I think this was because of too much CPU usage or some driver I have no idea but what I do know is that while these BSOD's were happening I would not read what happened cause it went away in 5 seconds.
i3 2120 3.3 ghz
sapphire radeon hd 7950
Asrock z87 motherboard.
Corsair Vengeance 8GB of RAM

And still it is incomplete.

Upload your MSINFO32.nfo file.
  1. Click on the start button
  2. Type "msinfo32" (without quotes) in the search bar of the start menu, click the resulting link. It will open the System Information window.
  3. File>Save. In the "File Name" filed, put "MSINFO32" (without Quote), give the save location to desktop, and click the "save" button.
  4. Give the time for processing, it will save a .nfo file on your desktop.
  5. Zip it, and upload it following the instruction.
I will be back again after 18/19 hours.

It is Plantronics GameCom. (c:\windows\system32\drivers\pltgc.sys).

Search for a possible update to the driver from Plantronics Gamecom.

Hello,

This, should be informative.
Also, I had the same problem once and I ended up pin pointing it to memory problems. Don't be scared though, its one of the possible reasons of all the possible reason.
If you have spare memory modules, try swapping them with your current ones. If it is working good, we know your sticks are bad.
Also, you mentioned aitkmdag, I solved this one by installing the drivers from windows update (downgrading from the one on ATI's website)

Hope this helps.
