Two days ago I started to get "blue screens" that display for a few seconds and then reboot the PC. I cannot read them properly and I cannot make a screenshot either. All I managed to read on them is something to do with "dumping something"... I also get my PC to go sort of out of sync - as if each horizontal pixel line would shift to either of the sides creating a pattern (so I guess it's no ordinatry BSoD problem). That obviously freezes the computer. When starting it again I agreed for the "Setup Restore" (I'm not sure if that's the right name...) but it was unsuccessful in fixing the issue. All I got was a report saying it's a "PROBLEM SIGNATURE 01 AUTOFAILOVER".
Could someone PLEASE help me answering the following questions and possibly fix this issue?
1) Is this a SOFTWARE or a HARDWARE issue?
2) If it's Software, would System Repair from the Windows DVD help?
3) If it's Software, could it be caused by a Bad Sector on my Hard Drive (Hardware)?
4) If it's my Hard Drive, what disk scan-repair software would you recommend to check it with (my Scan Disk does nothing after a reboot)?
5) Could software like "CCleaner" fix it by cleaning the registry files (I've done that and I seem to get the PC problems less often)?
I am using:
Widows 7 64bit
Phenom II (six core)
ATi Radeon HD4890 2GB
(but I believe anything apart from the system matters not)
All help is very much appreciated!

So for the past day or two, I've encountered some serious issues with my desktop. First problems were BSOD - giving the error "IRQL Not Less or Equal". These would happen sporadically and I could never pinpoint the cause of the BSOD. I am able to access the minidump files if needed. Sometimes...
