Windows 7: BSOD occuring semi regularly for months

BSOD occuring semi regularly for months

Good day!

I've been having semi regular BSOD for months now, there is some variety in the messages, some are generic, some have stop errors, some IRQ... Weird intervals, my computer can be up for 24 hours no issues and then for no apparent reason i can't keep it on more than 5 minutes without getting a BSOD.

I've attached the latest minidump that occured tonight, there was another crash after but it wasn't able to generate a minidump.

I'd appreciate any help that can be offered.

I should also mention this occurs with latest video card drivers, 2 separate video cards + on-board; This is a home built system; ram tested, 300GB hdd with OS, 1.5TB HDD in 2 partitions (trying the hotfix in the sticky right now).

Can anybody help? Does the dump info help?

Thanks in advance.

Do you have any other memory dumps? If so, please upload all of them.
This one blames NTFS.SYS - a component of the Windows NTFS file system on your hard drive.

I'd suggest trying this:
Run CHKDSK /R /F from an elevated (Run as adminstrator) Command Prompt.
When it tells you it can't do it right now - and asks you if you'd like to do it at the next reboot - answer Y (for Yes) and press Enter. Then reboot and let the test run. It may take a while for it to run, but keep an occasional eye on it to see if it generates any errors. See "CHKDSK LogFile" below in order to check the results of the test.

Elevated Command Prompt:
Go to Start and type in "cmd.exe" (without the quotes)
At the top of the Search Box, right click on Cmd.exe and select "Run as administrator"

Go to Start and type in "eventvwr.msc" (without the quotes) and press Enter
Expand the Windows logs heading, then select the Application log file entry.
Double click on the Source column header.
Scroll down the list until you find the Chkdsk entry (wininit for Win7) (winlogon for XP).
Copy/paste the results into your next post.
Then this:
H/W Diagnostics:
Please start by running these bootable hardware diagnostics:
Memory Diagnostics (read the details at the link)
HD Diagnostic (read the details at the link)

Also, please run one of these free, independent online malware scans to ensure that your current protection hasn't been compromised: Malware (read the details at the link)
No older drivers were noted in the dump file.

Summary of the BSOD:
