BSOD Before and After fresh format !!

Hello guys , im new member here so be kind with me because i dont know much for computers.So as the title says i am having my computer 5 years almost with not a single problem.Like a week ago BSOD started to came up on my pc like once a day , and the next after twice or 3 times.I runned RAM tests , Harddrive Tests , i tried system recovery , almost everything and after i tried everything i decided to format my pc thinking that the problem will be over.The first day was ok after the format but 2 days later now the problem returns again and BSOD comes up like every 10-15 minutes . I am desperate and dont know what to do . I just downloaded a hotfix from microsoft for the specific problem and yet ( like an hour passed) no BSOD shown up.I have to admit that i dont know where the problem is . I just switched the GPU cable to the other position as well (dont know if it really matters) .I also took a picture of the error but it isnt clear enough unfortunately.

Here is the pic : Image - TinyPic - Free Image Hosting, Photo Sharing & Video Hosting

Both the BSODs are IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL (stop 0xA). One is incomplete and the other is pretty silent about the issue. So it is difficult to determine the root cause based on them. Better let us take some precautionary actions based on the possible causes.

According to,

Usual causes:
Kernel mode driver, System Service, BIOS, Windows, Virus scanner, Backup tool, compatibility
Uninstall ESET for the time being, at least as a test. Use Microsoft Security Essentials as your antivirus with windows inbuilt firewall, and free MBAM as the on demand scanner.

Free up the startup. Windows does not need any other program to auto start with it, but the auto start programs often conflicts and causes various problems including BSODs.
  1. Click on the Start button
  2. Type “msconfig (without quotes), click the resulting link. It will open the System Configuration window.
  3. Select the “Startup” tab.
  4. Deselect all items other than the antivirus.
  5. Apply > OK
  6. Accept then restart.
Test your RAM modules for possible errors.
How to Test and Diagnose RAM Issues with Memtest86+
Run memtest86+ for at least 8 consecutive passes.

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

Let us know the results. It may require further actions based on the situation.

Good to see that RAM is not failing.

Now 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.
