Windows 7: BSOD - replaced hdd + clean install, still BSOD

BSOD - replaced hdd + clean install, still BSOD

Yesterday I got a BSOD out of the blue while just using chrome. I rolled back my video card drivers, tried a different video card, no video card, all resulted in a crash soon after startup. It did not crash in safe mode, and I ran seatools on my hard drive and it said there were bad sectors that it couldn't fix. So I bought a new HDD and SSD and made a fresh install of windows on them. With the new drives/OS I no longer crashed at starup and I thought I was good until it crashed again a few hours later. So then I ran memtest, came back 0 errors. I updated my motherboard BIOS, tried multiple previous versions of nvidia drivers, updated intel chipset, put in new SATA cables into different ports, tried each stick of ram independently. Same result evrey time. Today I turned on driver verifier for non-windows drivers and was able to induce bsod much more frequently (every few minuted vs hours). I only have the logs from after I turned on driver verifier because they werent saving originally. I really have no idea what to try anymore and I really hope you guys can help.

You need to update the driver to the 2.4GHz Wireless Lite-N PCI-E Adapter. It is old enough.

And it is the cause of the issue.
