Windows 7: Been having seemingly random BSODs

Been having seemingly random BSODs

My month old desktop has been either freezing/locking up forcing me to do a hard reboot, or just restarting completely on its own since I got it. Only getting the BSODs since I changed the system to not restart automatically. Before that it was just a poof with no explanation. I say random because sometimes it can go several hours or even a day without any restarts. It seems to be happening once or twice a day on average though. Strangely enough it happens most of the time when the computer is completely idle.

don't know what else is relevant

hoping it's just a driver issue, but I sure don't know

attaching is the minidump from recent crashes. it wasn't set up to save them before these. appreciate any help i can get. this is getting really annoying.

Here is the rest of my info that should be needed, sorry I didn't include it in the first post. Still getting a couple crashes every day, though it's usually not blue screen messages. Usually just the random reboot I mentioned in the first post, with the prompt giving a choice to boot in safe mode. Still having the issue with mouse/keyboard not responding sometimes as well, forcing a reboot. Help with anything would be great.

going through my event log, even though I don't really know what I'm doing, I think i have an idea of what the problem is? I think I'm just losing power to USB at random. I think that's a more accurate description of what happens to the mouse/keyboard. I guess they aren't just freezing up, but losing power completely (laser mouse has no red light coming out the bottom anymore). If the wrong thing lost power (what is connected through USB besides my own devices?) would that cause a crash/reboot? Still need help with solutions if this is indeed what the problem is.

Hate to bump my own topic but no one is going to see it, much less help me if its on page 10+
Power failures, if that's the problem; what could the culprits be?

Seemingly random BSODs

Getting BSODs at random, but it seems as though most of the time it's because I alt tab into or out of a full screen program. This might of course be confirmation bias. Got this when I logged back on, maybe it can help: BCCode: 3b BCP1: 00000000C0000005 BCP2: FFFFF96000164283 ...

Hi, I've been experiencing BSODs for a couple of months, but they seem to be getting more frequent recently. It's mostly when I'm running several programs (but not games), but other than that I haven't noticed anything particular. Sorry not to be more specific - I'd be really grateful for any...

For a while I've been having some seemingly random BSODs with my new Win7 Hope Premium install. I did have a severe problem with them a while ago but a reformat seemed to help.

Okay, so I *thought* my computer was fine, but yesterday it started p*ssing me off again. What a surprise... If you knew how many BSODs this friggin system has gone through, you would be surprised. Anyway, I've gotten 2 BSODs since I thought it was fixed. No minidump files have been produced and...
