Windows 7: Random BSOD (possibly External HD related)

Random BSOD (possibly External HD related)

I have been having random crashes due to BSOD on my Windows 7 Pro 64-bit OS desktop. Can someone help me identify the issue? I believe my problems started after installing and running Glary Utilities to defrag my hard drive on an external hd. I've since reformatted my pc and no longer have Glary Utilities but I still am experiencing crashes. If I were to guess, the BSOD is due to some corruption of the external hd but I really have no idea. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. (PS: I am aware of the fact that Glary Utilities and Windows 7 don't mix well - I wasn't before I installed/ran it....nothing like that a posteriori)

Please uninstall everything of Nvidia using Display Driver Uninstaller and install new drivers from Nvidia. Be sure the clean install box is checked and only install the Graphics driver and the PhysX driver, you can use this tutorial to do so NVIDIA Drivers - Avoid Problems - Windows 7 Help Forums

I have followed your instructions regarding the NVIDIA driver and thus far I have had no issue with blue screen. I will return if I need any further aid but, for now, I will consider this issue solved. Thank you again, axe0!
