BSOD error (stop x000000F4) + only runs in safe mode

Hello,

I've been having quite a lot of issues with my laptop (Inspiron 1545) recently. A few months ago I wasn't able to get into Windows 7 at all, and so quite a bit later (yesterday) I re installed/reformatted Windows 7, and it worked for about a day, but now I am frequently receiving BSOD error 0x000000F4, and now I can't get into Windows without using safe mode, but even with safe mode I am receiving BSOD (quite often, although I've been on for around 30 mins and no problems as of yet).

I know next to nothing about how to solve this, all I know is I use this A LOT, so I wouldn't be surprised if something has melted (or w/e). My laptop is also making a sort of buzzing noise, which I haven't noticed until it started making problems...

By the way, I'm using OS Windows 7 Home Premium 32bit on an Inspiron 1545, anymore details (as I'm not sure this is enough) then let me know!

Thanks in advance (by the way bear in mind I don't know much when answering please <3).

Yes it does, but the BS is only on the screen for a few seconds and the error is quite long... I'll try to get it all but it may take a while, sorry.

Is Windows 7 . . .
- x86 (32-bit) or x64 ?
32bit
- the original installed OS on the system?
Nope, it has been reinstalled
- an OEM or full retail version?
OEM
- OEM = came pre-installed on system
- Full Retail = you purchased it from retailer

- What is the age of system (hardware)?
About 3 years
- What is the age of OS installation (have you re-installed the OS?)
It has been reinstalled, so a day.

NOTICE:

I was unable to a system health report. I've been trying for about an hour, but it keeps coming up with the message "cannot find path specified" when trying to create a report. I have looked for solutions but none of them have worked, and in your 'System health report' thread this error isn't dealt with. I don't know what else to say really - I can't do this bit.

I'm sure I've messed up the attachments as well, sorry.

About the error code:

I haven't had a blue screen in ages, so I'm not sure if I will be able to get it all today, sorry.

Ah this is completely out of my depth. I don't want to spend another day seeing if I have problem number 327 just to find out I could actually have problem 400 up to 800 and having to take my laptop apart to do so.

Thanks for your help, though, I just don't think this is worth my time.
