Windows 7: Radomly Frustrating BSOD needs to vanish :-)

Windows 7 Ult 64Bit

Are they partitions of a single drive or seperate HDDs? Are any external USB drives? If so, unplug it and see if BSODs persist.

Any Internet Security apps, e.g., NIS, N360, KIS, McAfee, etc... installed?

Any encryption of any kind? Any other partitions/ drives other than the 4 NTFS listed?

There are no external usb drives attached at present. (there was a maxtor one touch 4 mini 160 gb attached but that has been retired, and recently an iomega 1tb drive but that is run through a qnap ts 219p now)
There are three internal sata drives. two drives are single partitions, and the third and smallest one has two partitions (one of which is encrypted with bitlocker).
The security installed is Avast Free Antivirus and Malwarebytes.
The only drive not listed is an iSCSI target drive on a QNAP TS219P (I doubt this is causing the problem as it was recently added to the mix [after bsod first occured] and it is only written to when backing up with windows backup/restore).
Not sure how this might factor, but I also run 'Dropbox' and Teamviewer.

Thanks! :-)

Please upload any new dmps as they come. Be sure to delete the old ones from the minidump folder now to avoid confusion.

Check to see if you can find updated chipset drivers.

Thanks, I will keep you posted. Though it may be a while... Oh and I have the latest chipset already Intel P55, though apparently it is beta according to intel's site but recommend by Gigabyte....

Sometimes, the beta and even the latest drivers do not work the best. You may have to experiment with different drivers to see which is best for your system.
