I've been checking the forums all day for a solution, but none of it pertained to me. I've gotten this BSOD 3 times in the past week and haven't been able to pinpoint it. It happens randomly whether I'm playing a game or browsing the internet.

windows version: Windows 7 Service Pack 1, 6.1, build: 7601
windows dir: C:\Windows
Hardware: ASRock, Z77 Pro4
CPU: GenuineIntel Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-3570K CPU @ 3.40GHz Intel586, level: 6
