Windows 7: Multiple different BSODs, mainly while playing games.

Multiple different BSODs, mainly while playing games.

Hello. I keep getting BSODs while using my computer. I'm not familiar with software and OS interfaces, so if you could break it down for me I would appreciate it a lot. I have an HP laptop dv7-1451nr. I have windows 7 ultimate x64. My laptop is around 3-3.5 years old now and I recently reformatted with the windows 7 ultimate OS. My friend look at the hardware for me and we found one RAM stick was bad and took it out so now I'm down to 2GB of RAM. The BSODs seem to happen mainly while I'm either trying to play a game, while those are the most consistent I sometimes get random BSODs doing what I can do right now on this computer. Can you help me out? I attached the dump file/ system report zip file.

Do you have an anti-virus installed?

Test your RAM using Memtest86+. Let it run until 6-8 passes have completed or errors have been found.
RAM - Test with Memtest86+

Enable Driver Verifier. Enabling this should hopefully crash your system and then point to the faulty driver that is causing problems. However before you do, it is advised that you create a system restore point and backup first.

Since about mid January now whenever I play games like osu!, WoW, RO2, or PSO2 my laptop will cause a blue screen at a pretty much random time. It can work for hours, or it can BSOD within moments of opening a game. Making it annoying to recreate. I tried almost everything the internet suggested...

Multiple BSODs while playing games, up to 3 times a day.
So, as a noob I have no idea what BSOD mean other than my computer is about to fail at any minute. I tried to get help from Microsoft, but they said that the best thing to do is to update my drivers. Since my drivers don't have any updates at all, I've no idea what to do. My computer is Sony Vaio,...

Hello! I've started to get random BSOD's on my computer a few weeks back. They seem to have, in all cases but one, been triggered while running a game in fullscreen. A couple of times the computer also just froze, without any BSOD. The peculiar part is; I've gotten at least four different kinds...
