An attempt was made to access a pageable (or completely invalid) address at an
interrupt request level (IRQL) that is too high.  This is usually
caused by drivers using improper addresses.
If a kernel debugger is available get the stack backtrace.
Arg1: 0f6397ac, memory referenced
Arg2: 0000001c, IRQL
Arg3: 00000001, bitfield :
    bit 0 : value 0 = read operation, 1 = write operation
    bit 3 : value 0 = not an execute operation, 1 = execute operation (only on chips which support this level of status)

How to solve what's the problem? BSOD happens when heavy stress, like encoding video, but I haven't installed anything new.

Here's couple minidumps if that helps.

What tools should I use to find the faulty driver/device?

I suggest updating your chipset drivers and BIOS.

The lack of any information on Google for the driver a98ymif7.sys concerns me. Download a copy of Malwarebytes and run a scan.

Okay, I'll do that and run Malware check. My BIOS drivers are the latest, but I just updated mobo drivers.

Just out of curiosity, how did you find about a98ymif7.sys? My WindDbg analyze didn't tell anything about it...

I used the lmn command. Load up the dmp in your debugger and enter that in the box at the bottom.

Okay, thanks. Any other handy commands? :)

I did run Malwarebytes through and it found couple trojan downloaders. I'm now running Spybot, since it has helped me couple of times before.

Just got another BSOD a while ago and now it says that probably cause is hardware.

I've now got few times new error saying that the cause is hardware.

Here's minidump if somebody can take a look.

Hardware often means RAM or hard drive.

Download a copy of Memtest86 and burn the ISO to a CD using Iso Recorder. Boot from the CD, and run at least 5 passes.
