I keep getting intermittent BSODs with storport.sys.
I got the following from bluescreen viewer:

I am running Windows 7 Ultimate (all up to date). Relevant system specs:

Nothing is being overclocked.
Any advice would be appreciated. I have scoured the net before posting here, and could not find an answer.
It’s your storage driver crapping out, and from my experience this particular STOP error is usually indicative of a hardware problem (drive, controller, RAM, perhaps power supply, etc.), especially when it’s intermittent.
Unless you have external devices (like HDDs or USB sticks) you can disconnect for a while to see if it helps, or your interested in doing some heavy debugging using Windbg and alike, then it’s time to try a fresh install of Windows (with the latest storage drivers for you motherboard/HDD controller if available from the manufacturer), or start swapping parts.
You’ll probably want to use the same drive for the fresh install test since the disk/storage subsystem appears to be what’s in question.
You can avoid losing everything by doing backups first.
