Windows 7: Random BSOD, probably driver causing page fault - even after format

Random BSOD, probably driver causing page fault - even after format

Hi guys,

I'm having for the last 2-3 months random BSOD, sometimes it crashes every other day, sometimes it crashes 10 times a day..

the things i did :

1. Updating all the drivers.
2. analyzing the dump files with "whocrashed" and similar software.
3. running memory check all night - all good
4. running cpu check (intel tool) - all good
5. replacing my gpu with another gpu - still crashes with another gpu.
6. checking wiring inside my pc, cleaning dust .. etc.

Yesterday I gave up and formatted my PC, reinstalled windows 7 and downloaded all updates.
It still crashes. I can't find the problem (probably bad driver .. )

I'm not sure how to edit the post, so I'll add additional information:
7. I've ran "verifier", the computer crashed several times after verifier run, couldn't find any useful information in the dump file.
Sometimes it crashes because of nvidia driver, sometimes it crashes because usb driver, sometimes no driver at all (just some internal kernel module).

8. Tried to look into memory.dmp using window debugging tools and following this tutorial :
HOW TO: Debug Memory Dumps (Figure out what is causing a BSOD) | MajorGeeks.Com Support Forums
couldn't find any useful information either.

And help or suggestion will be highly appreciated.

I'm considering upgrading to windows 10, maybe he'll use another drivers ?

You mentioned that your computer crashes a lot, so do you have any other .dmp files?

Need help with page fault and other random BSOD
The page faults occur mostly while playing WoW. The other ones usually just happen at random times after I walk away from the comp. I checked the RAM with memtest and it passed with 0 errors (though I only allowed it 1 pass). Thanks for any info you can give.
