BSOD playing Skyrim and other games, error 0x0000001a

Hello,

Attached are two minidumps from two recent crashes - one from today (8/8) as described in the post title, and another that happened overnight on 8/1. These are the first crashes I've experienced in a few months - I'm not sure what caused them.

On a possibly related note, I'm seeing a lot of disk errors in the Event Viewer, all of the form: "The device, \Device\Harddisk0\DR0, has a bad block." I've already run chkdisk /f once, and I've gotten a couple more such errors in the meantime. Is my hard drive failing? Could this have caused the BSODs?

Thanks in advance for your help!

Ah, here's the Seven Forums diagnostic .zip that you guys want. Sorry for not posting it initially!

EDIT: One last thing, and then I'll shut up. I noticed in the driver list that my Brother printer drivers were way out of date, so I've since installed the Brother update available via Windows Update, released on April 2012.

Hi guys,

I've been trying to tackle this issue myself. Running sfc /scannow finds corrupted files, but the service is unable to fix them. I checked the log to see which files are corrupted; the only one in the log is "lsm.exe.mui." Could this corrupted file be causing my problems?

Thanks for any help!
