Windows 7: Chronic BSODs during random intervals (various error messages)

Chronic BSODs during random intervals (various error messages)

Hi all,

I've been having problems with BSODs with my computer for a while now. The two most common errors I've been getting are "driver irql not less or equal" and "usb bug code error", although I've had quite a few different messages. Every time I think I've fixed the problem and it goes away for a week or two, it reappears and I have to try something else.

I'm having a hard time trying to find the source of this problem, and I was wondering if you could help me troubleshoot this problem. Recently, I've been BSODing a few times a day, and I've also been having issues with performance (e.g. browser often freezes up or crashes, or games with low memory requirements will often crash and "freeze", and I'll have to tab out and in again to get them to work).

Are you able to advise on what this problem may be, or help me narrow it down?

I've attached my minidump files and also taken a screenshot of my specs for reference:

Thanks very much in advance.

I'm not entirely sure how this forum feels about shameless self-bumps, but it's been a week and I've had a few more recurring errors these past few days, so I thought I'd attach my most recent minidump files.

"drive irql not less or equal" seems to be the most common problem I'm having lately.
