Windows 7: BSOD occurs on startup every ten (or so) boot ups, normal in between

BSOD occurs on startup every ten (or so) boot ups, normal in between

I have been experiencing BSOD every ten or so boots of my computer. I have no troubles in between and after the BSOD my computer does successful system restores, only to run into the BSOD a few start ups later.
It has been occurring now for about 3 months.

I am sorry I do not have any more specific information, but my PC really has no other problems other than this occasional BSOD issue. I will be more than happy to add any information that someone might need to help upon request!

Any assistance in helping me understand/fix the issue would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Hi CWhit,

Please uninstall Gigabyte OC Guru or update it.
It looks like there's a bug in one of the drivers Gigabyte OC Guru uses, all crashes of this year are due to an issue with the exact same instructions.

4: kd> .trap 0xfffff880039b8450
NOTE: The trap frame does not contain all registers.
Some register values may be zeroed or incorrect.
rax=00000000ffffffff rbx=0000000000000000 rcx=fffff8800750a930

Basically, the driver tries to move data from one location (r14 + rbx * 8) to another location (rdx), presumably this other location is not available to be written to.
What this driver should have done is check whether it could write to this other location before actually trying it.

Considering the age, an update probably will fix this.
