Would you mind having a look at the latest minidump file? Maybe something will come up... I have used the latest BIOS and chipset drivers from the mobo manufacturer (ASUS)

BSOD totally random.. when I'm not doing anything, when watching a movie, or sometimes after waking up from sleep and leaving it by itself for a few minutes. Sometimes my computer runs fine for days, sometimes not

Scroll down to the Utilities category, then scroll down to the "ATK0110 driver for WindowsXP/Vista/Windows 7 32&64-bit" (it's about the 12th item down).
Download and install it.
Go to C:\Windows\System32\drivers to check and make sure that the ASACPI.sys file is date stamped from 2009 or 2010 (NOT 2005).
