Windows 7: BSOD doing "nothing"

BSOD doing "nothing"

Hello guys, just browsing my computer, and nothing specially, I'm not in a game, I'm doing "nothing" special. Opening my PC and bam, Bluescreen, restart, other Bluescreen and so on. This is driving me ****ing crazy! 18 Bluescreens in the last hour untill now and this is happening daily. Can someone check the log and tell me? I have googled and the problem seems to be coming from "the kernel". What should I do, what component should I replace?
I have checked with BLuescreenView and the problem every and every time comes from "ntoskrnl.exe" and some .sys files or dll. Can someone tell me what to do? I've attached all the logs from this month. If you need more just tell me, it will happen again and again.

I am unable to look at your log at this time. But I can make a suggestion as to what you can do to find out what is causing the problem, as well as how to fix it.

There may be a misbehaving program which is loading at startup, which is conflicting with Windows in some way (perhaps it is stepping on some critical area of memory), thereby causing the blue screens. To see if this is the case, you can disable all non-Microsoft services from starting when you start Windows, to see if the problem goes away. If the problem does go away after you do this, then you can re-enable these services one at a time, then see if the problem comes back. If it does come back, then the service you just re-enabled was the misbehaving program. Make note of it, then disable it and leave it disabled. Continue checking all services to make sure that there are no other misbehaving programs.

You can use MSCONFIG for this process. Run MSCONFIG and go to the Services tab. At the bottom of the window, check the box that says "Hide all Microsoft services". Click APPLY. Once you have done this, the only things showing will be the non-Microsoft services. Disable all of them, then click APPLY. Now reboot the computer and log back into Windows.

Has the problem disappeared? Try the computer for a while, so you can know if it has. If all is now ok, then you will soon have this solved. Simply go back into MSCONFIG and re-enable one service at a time, noting the name of it, then reboot. Then try the computer for a while. You will soon know which services were causing the blue screens. if you will leave them disabled in MSCONFIG, your problem will be solved.

If the above did not fix the problem, then you may have an overheating part. Download and run Speedfan (http://www.almico.com/speedfan.php), to see if any of the temperatures are excessively hot. If they are, then whatever is excessively hot is probably bad (for example, your graphics card may be super hot and therefore bad). This type of problem can definitely cause blue screens.

Replace the bad part, and your problem should be solved.

Thank you, but nope. The temperatures are fine. The video card is about 25, doesn't surpass 28 on idle, the processor is around 35-40, I've checked hdd and still checking now for errors, with HD Tune Pro, Seatools and Western Digital Data Lifeguard, I've got and 850 Pro Samsung SSD and I think the problem "may" come from that direction maybe, because I can't check it with normal Hard Disk programs? Any other suggestions? Checking the rams also with MEMTEST after this. I've dealt with bluescreens, but mostly around 1 year ago, and that happened when I was alt tab-ing from a game, to desktop, reinstalled windows and was all good to go. But the windows is fresh, around 2-3 months, so this "can't" be the problem. All the problems from the bluescreen come from ntoskrnl.exe as far as I can see, thank you though for your advice.

Yes. Did you try my MSCONFIG suggestion? BSOD doing "nothing"

You've very thoroughly checked for hardware issues, and there don't appear to be any. So in all likelihood there is a misbehaving program which is stepping on other stuff, causing the blue screens. Try the MSCONFIG procedure that I talked about - I'm guessing that this will fix things for you.

Yes, I have already tried it, I've disabled all the services (non microsoft one) and so on. I was figuring out that based on the dump and on the process or dll you can suggest me something "particular", rather to disable ahci mode or stuff like that, but thank you, already I've tried more than you think, more than the "usual sollutions".
