I'd be thinking along the lines of twitchy drivers but after a year i'd imagine you would have gone through a few updated ones. Next move on to disabling unused devices in BIOS (serial com ports, printer port, firewire, etc since most things are USB now) or maybe updating to newer firmware for it. If that has been done or failed to make a difference, then try test without certain auto-running applications installed (itunes, certain combos of anti-spyware etc) in case there's clash of software. Also check simple things like temperatures of the Mobo and CPU, and Video card are within normal ranges and voltages, maybe also check RAM timings aren't too tight or under/over voltaged as that can mess up things.

Some excellent diagnostic flow charts here if you want to really go for

Going from the latest dump backward, the first listed the cause as being aswTdi.sys (not certain, but it appears that is part of Avast AV), the second just says memory corruption, the third...unknown, fourth ntfs.sys, and all that followed simply said unknown.

That doesn't leave much to go on, except the first mentioned. Whether there is any relationship between the known and unknown BSODs would only be a guess, but I would try uninstalling Avast. if it is installed,and see what happens then.

thx for the advices. gonna try uninstaling avast and looking for newer firmwire.
