If it says that then you still have an inconsistent Powerplan setting.
Please check step by step, if you want you can post snips of the screens so we can help.

Driver verifier runs on its own and will test drivers. It is meant to do the crashing by itself (not helped by you) as it goes through all loaded drivers.

When you have a driver verifier induced crash you will have a dump.

To make sure your machine can make dumps at all..:
Quote:
To ensure minidumps are enabled:

Dump Files - Configure Windows to Create on BSOD

Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
Under the Write Debugging Information header
Select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb varies).
Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
OK your way out.
Reboot if changes have been made.

My computer is able to make dumps in the settings, but for some reason it doesn't, maybe because when my computer restarts it's not a bsod, or maybe there's some error

And what do you mean inconsistent powerplan setting?
The computer always say entering power save mode when i reset the computer/random restart
i don't think it actually means theres something wrong with the powerplan


Also, when the computer restarts, in the event log it says:
Critical Source- Kernel Power
The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly.
Code:

That is what I mean with inconsistent settings. Regretfully, W7 doesn't handle that well. Turn every power saving thing off. No sleeping, no HDD powerdown, no USB stuff. Those three are still wrong here...

Didn't help
but i noticed, sometimes the core temperatures go up to 63*C , usually its around 59*C and when idling 51*C
could it be the problem? Because if i just get computer restart, then try to play in the same game, usually the computer restarts quickly, but if i play after a break, it takes more time to restart

However, no matter the heat, once i start BFBC2 the computer crashes before reaching the main menu, and in firefox computer restarts in less than 2 minutes

What is your ambient temp? These are not too high for when on load, but it is a bit high when idle....

The problem was not the temperatures... it was the GPU and the PSU
My brother gave me a Nvidia Geforce 9400 GT and some PSU from 2006, now i'm able to run bfbc2 (on low settings, with some lags sometimes) but no more BSODs

i am going to buy a new GPU and maybe a PSU, something that would be able to run new games (such as bf3) on medium/high settings
