BSOD Critical Object Termination, Error 0XF4

I hope someone can help me with this issue. I have an Asus G74S which I have sent back twice due to BSOD issues. The first time Asus replaced a memory stick and the system board. The second time they replaced the CPU. I'm still getting BSOD errors. oh, and fun fact: This laptop is a replacement of a G73 that I had to send back 6 times due to a non-functional touchpad - I finally convinced them after about 18 months to give me another computer and here I am...

I'm really hoping that someone can help me figure this out as I have zero faith in Asus. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Anyways... I've attached the SF Diagnostic Tool zip to this post.

Here is the Windows Debugger Tool results from the last dump:

Conclusion
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

3 crash dumps have been found and analyzed. No offending third party drivers have been found. Consider configuring your system to produce a full memory dump for better analysis.


Read the topic general suggestions for troubleshooting system crashes for more information.

Note that it's not always possible to state with certainty whether a reported driver is actually responsible for crashing your system or that the root cause is in another module. Nonetheless it's suggested you look for updates for the products that these drivers belong to and regularly visit Windows update or enable automatic updates for Windows. In case a piece of malfunctioning hardware is causing trouble, a search with Google on the bug check errors together with the model name and brand of your computer may help you investigate this further.
