Windows 7: Thinkpad T400 Elite. Get BSODs all the time

Thinkpad T400 Elite. Get BSODs all the time

It all started when I installed Win 7 after a Linux usage for a couple of months. First I thought it was uTorrent that screwed it up so I removed it but it still gave BSODs at least once a day. Haven't had the energy to do anything about it until now so now I'm asking you guys for advice how to get rid of it.
I have activated minidump in Control Panel > System > Advanced System Settings > Setting in Startup and Recovery > Small memory dump (256KB) under System failure.
Got a BSOD a couple of minutes ago but I didn't get a minidump output from it.

Attached the four debug reports I got from SF Diagnostic Tool.

Appreciate any help I can get,

Windows 7 Professional x64

Didn't see that thread, guess I read an old one =)

Is Windows 7 . . .
- x86 (32-bit) or x64 ?
- the original installed OS on the system?
Yes, it's from my OEM Recovery Discs
- an OEM or full retail version?

- What is the age of system (hardware)?
About 10months
- What is the age of OS installation (have you re-installed the OS?)
About 4months. Re-installed it in the beginning of the summer, before then I had Arch Linux on it without any problems.

No minidumps were included - and no trace of any BSODs to be found in any of the logs.

Check C:\Windows for a file called MEMORY.DMP - if there is one there can you zip it up and upload it (but to an external file host such as RapidShare: 1-CLICK Web hosting - Easy Filehosting due to the size of it)

The only possible software cause that was immediately apparent to me - Panda Internet Security. 3rd party AVs/Firewalls have been known to cause problems and it would pay to remove it just in case.

How can I uninstall my Panda antivirus 2011, 2010, 2009 and 2008 from my computer? - Panda Security

After removal install MSE -

However, the fact that no minidumps were created is often a sign of hardware problems.

So, run the following hardware tests too. (run the Blend test as well as the Small FFT test)

RAM - Test with Memtest86+

Video Card - Stress Test with Furmark

Also - in the system recovery control panel turn off the Automatically Restart option. Then next time you get a BSOD you should have time to take a photo of it for us to have a look at.
