Blue Screens? Causes?


I just recently built a Windows 7 computer a couple months ago, Haven't used it much since Ive been really busy studying and such. I've decided to play some games on it since I built it as a gaming pc, Everything's been working all fine and dandy but recently I've been experiencing blue-screens. 

I've noticed them when using the PCSX2 Emulator and DS3 Motionjoy tool. I have some additional information that makes me believe its the DS3 Tool. I was once playing Just Cause 2 and it crashed out of no where mid game. I'm not too sure if the controller cord got nicked and the connection was lost that cause the blue screen. It happened again when my pc went in standby mode. (I think ds3 tool was still active) and once when I plugged in my iPod it crashed. (again DS3 was active.)

I looked at other forums and people suggested other users to update their gfx card since that might be the issue and I proceeded to do it. and as you guessed it when I played the PS2 emulator it indeed crashed. It never bluescreens when Im on the web and stuff like that. at least I dont recall it ever happening. I included all the DMP files excluding the Just Cause 2 one since I misclicked and my dmp files are already uploaded. If yous need it just let me know and ill upload it. I also included a msinfo32 document. for yeas. 

Please help me. I don't want to be in the hole for $1300, it cost me to build this thing. 

Im not sure if this is relevant at all but might as well give yous as much info I can. Game was Persona 4.
Thanks very much!

The attached dumps are almost entirely made up of the following bugcheck


The Kernel-Mode Driver Framework was notified that Windows detected an error
in a framework-based driver

In all of your dumps, it's pointing to the culprit MijXfilt.sys on the stack, etc, which is the MotioninJoy simulate Xbox 360 controller (virtual Xinput device) driver:

In the *10d dumps, the process at the time of the crash is also very consistent, which is DS3_Tool.exe.

To my knowledge, using this specific driver rather than the official drivers is not recommended... I've seen MijXfilt.sys tons in the past in cases of analysis. Remove this driver and install the official driver:

As far as I know, removing MotioninJoy via add / remover programs uninstall list doesn't work and the driver still remains, so you must uninstall it via the uninstall list, AND THEN navigate to c:\windows\system32\drivers and delete MijXfilt.sys.
