Random BSODs, Windows not making crash dumps

Hi all. Recently, I have been having sporadic blue screens on Windows 7. I've been unable to discern what the issue is. It generally happens when there is a big change on my display, for example, I have been getting repeated blue screens when opening a game in full screen. Here is a picture of the blue screen: http://i.imgur.com/ueqbEwn.jpg

I have ran memtest, along with chkdsk with no errors, which leads me to believe hardware issues relating to my RAM or HDD is not the case, although I won't deny it's still a possibility. I was also having this issue with an older GPU and PSU, and I continued to have it after I replaced them with newer models, so that excludes them for me as well. Most people I've asked for help need a crash .dmp file, however, for whatever reason, I am never able to produce one. I realize it's very difficult to figure out what the issue is without a crash dump, so I have been pulling my hair out trying to figure this out. I would GREATLY appreciate ANY help, whether it be with successfully attempting to get Windows to produce a crash dump or to single out what the issue might be that is causing these blue screens. I will provide any more information about my PC if requested. Thank you.

  1. Do you have all the latest drivers for your hardware? And have you removed any pesky drivers left from your old GPU?

    Yes, I wiped all the drivers from my previous GPU before installing this one, and I am up to date on my drivers.
  3. Is it just 1 game?

    Nope, the same thing has happened across a few games, and sometimes randomly without a game, such as just switching a tab in chrome or something.
  5. Bump. I'm continuing to get them, and this has been going on for months. I'd really like to get to the bottom of this and I'd be grateful for any help.
