Multiple BSOD - Don't know what to do anymore

  1. Hi guys!

    My notebook specifications are:

    HP Pavilion dv4 Notebook PC
    Windows 7 X-86
    AMD Turion II Dual-Core Mobile M500, 2200 Mhz, 2 cores
    BIOS: Insyde F.17

    I've been having a lot of problems with my notebook for about 4 months now, and I have read multiple forums to try to fix things, but I'm running out of ideas now...

    I started getting BSOD whenever my mom would play those facebook or zynga games. I took it to a repair center, and they changed the hard drive, because it had a problem, and cleaned the fans.

    It got back from the repair, but the problems continued, but now is happening every time, sometimes not doing anything, it just restarts with the BSOD.

    Here's what I've already done:

    - Did the Memory Test for about 14 hours, no errors were found;

    - I've updated all the drivers with Driver Booster;

    - I've updated Flash Player, Shockwave Player;

    - I updated the BIOS. I had the F.04 version, the latest was F.18. But the computer shut down after the update and honestly I don't remember what else happened, so then I tried to install the previous version, F.17, and the same thing happened, so I just left it alone;

    - I tried to update AMD graphics driver. The computer shut down after the installation was completed, so I don't know if it was successful. For a few days, no BSOD, but then the party was over. So I uninstalled everything, so I could do a fresh install but got a blue screen. I had to restore the computer to the last known configuration, and when I tried to install the driver again, I got an error message. Don't know what to do there.

    - I ran Driver Verifier, and got a whole bunch of information I don't know what to do with. The prints screens are here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/iv93q3z0mjpc5j9/DriverVerifier.zip

    In the end of this post, there is a report from WhoCrached (I've already uninstalled Avast BackUp.)

    Could someone please try to help me? I've had this notebook since 2009, never had any problems with it, but this year it decided to test my patience.

    I don't want to take it back to the repair center, because they kept saying the computer was fine, when it wasn't.

    I apologize for the huge post. Whatever extra information is needed, please let me know!

    Note that it's not always possible to state with certainty whether a reported driver is actually responsible for crashing your system or that the root cause is in another module. Nonetheless it's suggested you look for updates for the products that these drivers belong to and regularly visit Windows update or enable automatic updates for Windows. In case a piece of malfunctioning hardware is causing trouble, a search with Google on the bug check errors together with the model name and brand of your computer may help you investigate this further.
