Windows 7: Random Crashes

Random Crashes

Hi, My PC has been freezing up where I can still move the mouse and close things but after a short time it freezes completely and restarts itself but says boot drive not ready on the restart. This happens daily sometimes several times.
I have, updated drivers including bios, checked the memory voltage is 1.5v as it should be and that the other voltages are stable, tried to run a memory test with memory test pro but the program crashes.
I also found this fix: Fix Windows 7 And Windows Server 2008 R2 Random Freezes which sounds like it is my problem but when I try to install I get: "The update is not applicable to your computer".

My specs are:
Mainboard : ASRock Z68 Extreme4
Chipset : Intel Z68
Processor : Intel Core i5 2500K @ 3300 MHz
Physical Memory : 16384 KB (4 x 4096 DDR3-SDRAM )
2*Video Card : AMD Radeon HD 6900 Series (Crossfire)
Hard Disk : OCZ-VERTEX3 ATA Device (240GB)
CD-Rom Drive : TSSTcorp DVDWBD SH-B123L ATA Device
PSU: HX850W Corsair

Processor Voltage : 1.18 V
VIN1 : 1.81 V
+3.3V Voltage : 3.30 V
+5V Voltage : 4.94 V
+12V Voltage : 6.97 V

Any help please?

Your 12 volt is way way to low at 6.97 volts. How are you getting these voltage readings? Try using this program.

Thx! Those numbers are from pc wizard 2012 ...I checked my bios and its actually: 12V: ~12v
I ran a scan with Spacey and it said:

Temperature 128 C (very red)
Temperature Range bad (greater than 55 C)

but when I took a look inside it wasn't even warm

Try this little program also. Temps of 128c if true is a very great problem. You need to tell us from what hardware that temp came from. The two most inportant temps are.
1. CPU

Gives you a idea of what the progrom looks like.

MAKE SURE you cpu and gpu fans are working.

All the temps check out, just a glitch in the Speccy program

I am still having the problem, Speccy still claims my SSD is 120 degrees but that would make it practically melt and it is cold to the touch. All other temperatures are fine.
