BSOD: IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL with ntoskrnl.exe

My computer crashed with a BSOD while watching a Youtube video. I have not had any BSOD for the past 6 months, nor did I did install any new apps recently.

6 months ago I was experiencing an issue with BSOD as well but when I resitted the memory the issue has disappeared, I do not have mini dumps from 6 months ago.

I just ran Pre-boot self assessment test that is available in Alienware bios and it did NOT detect any issues.

Specs:
Alienware Aurora
-Windows 7 64-bit Ultimate
-Core i7 960 3.2GHz.
-12 GB of RAM - 1066MHz.
-Radeon HD 5870
