BSOD rashes: Ntoskrnl 0x0000003b, hal.dll, nvlddmkm

I have been having a rash of BSOD over a period of many months. I began having BSODs (ntoskrnl) during alt-tabbing(while gaming) and on wake-up from sleep. It seemed to not happen if I disconnected my 2nd monitor. So I figured my vid card was starting to go. So I swapped cards. Problem went away for awhile, then nvlddmkm bsod on sleep-wakeups, so that pointed to the swapped vid card drivers. Reinstalled those and I was good for days. Had some BSOD related to my webcam drivers, which I have had problems with in the past, so I reloaded those as usual and I was fine(lvrs64 bsod). Then a BSOD Relating to an Motion Enjoy ps3 controller driver on sleep-wakeup, uninstalled then I was good for 3 or 4 days. Have had one hal.dll w/(ntoskrnl) bsod during normal use (using browser). And now just recently nvldd w/ntoskrnl bsod again on wake-up, which is pointing back to vid drivers?

These bsods don't happen every day or wake-up, sometimes they can go 4 or 5 days with no problem.
You can check the dump files but the codes are mostly 0x0000003b, 1e, and d1

Ran memtest 86 for 12.5 hrs with no errors

Had the 3b bsod involving nvlddmkm.sys again after 4 days since the last 3b (which was caused by win32k.sys). These still happen on wake-up from sleep. Any ideas yet? I may run driver verifier today.

I installed the mountain of updates, including sp1, which is super old. No BSOD for 12 days now

I didn't know that updates hadn't been run on this machine for that long, auto updates were off. I'm glad the solution was simple and I thank you for the help, yo.
