2 days ago, I left Blizzard Background Downloader on all night and used Auto Shutdown to turn off the computer at about 6am. I've done this 100's of times before with other downloads, but never the Blizz downloader. I have also recently changed the nVidia settings on my GTX 260 gpu to "high performance" parameters, ie making it more nVidia controlled than application controlled (world of warcraft). It greatly improved my performance, but I don't know if either of these are related to my BSOD problems. I can run in safe mode just fine, have been for hours, but upon a regular restart I might get 1-2 minutes of normal use before BSOD. Here are a few dumps, I hope someone can look them over. I have tomorrow off and I don't want to spend it reinstalling Windows 7 ...

I've attached the 7forum BSOD diag tool folder, but I ran it in safe mode and something tells me that won't help much. I can try to read from normal boot but I only get about 30 sec before BSOD. I've passed windows memory diagnostic, 2 chkdsk's but get instant BSOD from sfc /scannow in safe mode.
