Windows 7: Randomly Explosive BSOD

Randomly Explosive BSOD

I am running Windows 7 Ultimate x86 Service Pack 1 on a Sony VAIO with an Intel Pentium Dual CPU T2330 @ 1.60GHZ and 1GB RAM. It is the original OS, from the store. I've had this computer since 2009 and have never re-installed the OS. This past week the computer started acting up, originally freezing up once in a while but has got increasingly worse in the last two days. Now giving me the BSOD randomly while using the computer. It has gotten to the point where the computer is basically unusable.

I wish to see if anyone can give me hope for this computer. The mini dump has been attached. If I can't fix this, Im out of a computer until I can afford another. A thousand thanks in advance everyone!

How To Find Drivers:
Quote:
- search Google for the name of the driver
- compare the Google results with what's installed on your system to figure out which device/program it belongs to
- visit the web site of the manufacturer of the hardware/program to get the latest drivers (DON'T use Windows Update or the Update driver function of Device Manager).
- if there are difficulties in locating them, post back with questions and someone will try and help you locate the appropriate program.
- - The most common drivers are listed on this page: Driver Reference Driver Reference
- - Driver manufacturer links are on this page: Drivers and Downloads


Only after the above are remedied can we find the true causes.

I know how tedious it is, but the best way to do it is the way you are not using driver sweeper like apps.
