Windows 7: BSOD during L4D2/while running steam in the background.

BSOD during L4D2/while running steam in the background.

Is Windows 7 . . .
- Ultimate x64
- bought an OEM copy with PC and installed myself

- What is the age of system (hardware) 1 month old.
- What is the age of OS installation - also only 1 month

BSOD only used to happen while playing L4D2 and rarely, now it will frequently BSOD during game (maybe only with 5-10mins) and has started crashing when steam is running in the background (not doing any downloads). Crashes probably 2-5 times a day. I have attached the zip file in accordance with the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions.

I am desperate for help! Thanks!
