Windows 7: Getting MULTIPL BSODS on Windows startup, then the PC acts normal

Getting MULTIPL BSODS on Windows startup, then the PC acts normal

I've been getting reoccurring BSODS for the past couple of weeks almost every time the PC is booted up. It will enter windows, then either get a BSOD after about 2-3 minutes or freeze up. This will happen once or twice, and afterwards the PC will go on working for hours on end normally. Even though it is ancient, it sill browses the web, plays games etc without fault, even after the BSODS have started to appear. I haven't encountered any which i could strictly attribute to running a specific application which might cause strain on the hardware.
The BSODS are very varied - cache manager, kmode exception not handled, bad pool header, system service exception, bad pool caller, unexpected kernel mode trap.
It's been going on for a couple of weeks with varying frequency. I'd get one or two for a week straight, then none four days in a row, then a couple per day again. All of the descriptions I've read about these BSODS suggest that the culprit might be a device driver that's acting up, but I haven't managed to find out what that might be.It's gotten worse yesterda and today, and would even freeze up during windows bootup, while the bios was checking the memory or going through the disk drives.

It happens at random, always when I start the PC and boot into windows. Safe mode doesn't seem to be affected, but since it sometimes doesn't crash straight away when i go into windows normally, I can't be 100% sure.

I ran memtest on the memory and everything was fine
I ran chkdsk /r. It found two small bad sectors, but it didn't fix the problem
I wanted to do a system restore, but had no points prior to when this started happening.
I've installed bluescreenviewer to see what the BSODS were about, and each time it says that ntoskrnl.exe is at fault, but that's obviously too vague.

Any help would be appreciated as I'm slowly but surely losing my mind over this.

EDIT: I just saw that horrible title, I'd change it if I could. My apologies.

that's failing hardware, as it can't be windows or drivers if the bios is ever unstable. I'd replace the motherboard if you can't otherwise figure it out after much longer

Also, and I'm not sure on this one since I only ran safe mode 2 times, the issue migh be coming froma faulty network driver. Earlier today I went into safe mode with networking hoping to at least try and get some work done through that without all the crashing. As soon as i entered safe mode, boom - system service exception BSOD.

About half an hour ago I went into normal safe mode without networking, and it was stable. In there I uninstalled nvidia nforce PCI system management and ethernet drivers, cleaned out everything from the registry etc. I restarted the pc in safe mode, and the pcie drivers reinstalled themselves automatically. Then i went and reinstalled them again, and installed the ethernet driver. Currently I'm in normal mode and didn't have any BSODS... yet. This isn't over by a long shot, but I hope I'm going in the right direction.

Roy is resting so I took a look at you log and found a problem

From your log.

Windows Product ID Type: 2
Windows License Type: OEM SLP
You have a OEM SLP install date of 2008. Windows 7 didn't come out until 2009. Which means the OEM manufactures could not of install Windows 7 on this computer.
All OEM/SLP are installed by the manufacture of the computer.

You are using a HP OEM/SLP COA key on a Unknown motherboard which also isn't done by HP.

This is what the OEM/SLP key was used on from the factory.

Win 7,Ultimate,HP,XXXXX-OEM-8992662-00010
What all this means; is your install of Windows 7 on this computer is counterfeit.

The way to solve this problem is buy a legal copy of Windows 7 with the proper matching COA key and do a Clean Install.
