BSOD really annoying happening randomly (frequently)

I have been getting BSOD for the past 3 weeks and you guys have no idea how frustrating it is for 3 weeks, ive read maybe a book worth of words from forums and all and still havent been able to fix. I have pritty much tried EVERY single possible way to fix this and yet still nothing, i however have discovered that when i took out my NVIDIA GT 240 graphics card (Had latest driver of 2014 at time) and just played with onboard graphics (ATI Radeon 4200 i believe- only 256 mb so its a joke) i was able to play the same game 3x longer then usual (still few min) i immediately stopped because graphics were UGLY compared to 1gb. The game i was testing was SWTOR (star wars the old republic) and this game ALWAYS causes bsod within the firs 2 minutes of gameplay (sometimes before gameplay, on loading screen) with the nvidia. I run game on mid-high settings with the 240, now with the 4200 i can barely run well on lowest possible and it looks ugly. Even though this evidence suggests my graphics card or drivers is <messed> up, i went on some testing, i tried making the drivers 2013 instead of 2014 for the 240, i tried with most updated. But the most weird stupidest thing is, is the fact that i have pritty much received every type of BSOD possible... literally. From the bad_pool_cleaner to memory_management. Probably over 10x different errors. I tried over 20x different methods (all that i could find) (and trust me i researched for hours on end, day after day) it still didnt work. Some of the days (2 so far) ive gotten freezing just before system is booted up, and most of the time it randomly happens whilist right now as im writing this it only happens in video games. Absolute pain in the ass this thing is, and what makes it worse is that my computer takes 2-3 minutes in general to fully boot up, specs are following... Ok for the first time in 3-4 hours the system got bsod whilist not in any kind of game, i was just copying system specs and freeze , bsod, shutdown. OMFG. What is annoying too is that there is a sound that comes up whenever i get any bsod, and its really stupid.

If its worth mentioning i dont know, but i started getting these BSOD frequent on 32 bit, and formatted and installed windows 7 64 bit service pack 1 and yet still got them, please if there is anyone i would absolutely appreciate of support for this. (By the way, not to be rude- but please dont waste my time with 'take a look at this thread as it might help you' of problems that are
nonrelated to my particular, as ive seen it happen in (other) forums of people getting spammed by links that literally did not even have much to do with their problem) thank you very much again for any support for this issue

Also tried adding 2 HDD's (small ones) and didnt go any better. Im about to look at these links and ill reply asap on what has happened, thank you for the reply

  3. Update after 2 hours....
    Mate I really have appreciated your reply,
    but i have <duckling> had enough.
    I am about to do a FRESH format (last time i put back the data from video games and movies of approxx 80 gb) this time its going to be fresh and I will download my games officially only.
    This way if i ever receive another BSOD i will know for certain that it is a hardware error, because no way in the <duckling> world that i get a BSOD or freeze from a driver when i do a FRESH format and reinstall of windows 7 64-bit service pack 1. Right now as im typing this the system is reformatting. Apologies for all this swearing but you may think you have an idea of how frustrated I am, but believe me my friend, keep that idea in your mind and multiply it by 15x. Im not going to commit suicide or anything but using figure of speech, i feel like committing suicide. A computer is not everything, but i honestly spend like 80% of my freetime on this machine and to receive these BSOD's for weeks now is a BIG issue. I mean ill be honest, if i recieved one per 2-3 days, its a problem but i can live with it. This is getting out of hand as it is literally giving me 1000x BSOD if i turn the computer on that many times each day. It doesnt give me a break. I will reply to this again in 1 hour if i can to see if i get another BSOD , thanks again
