Default Drivers, Blue screens and Freezing.

I don't know whats going on.
In the recent weeks my computer has gone from running perfectly to BlueScreening with this error

"driver_irql_not_less_or_equal"

And when its not crashing. every 20-35 seconds any game I'm playing will Freeze for a split second.

I have no idea whats going on. Please help.
(I hope i posted this in the right section)

get all current drivers/firmware for your motherboard from their site, make sure you have correct motherboard Revision to your model for some manufactors have same model name but different hardware on MB, for if flashed wrong MB Rev ... you just made a big paperweight

seems a USB device needs a update

also switch out the data cables to drives
