Let us know.

If yes, see that removing that one works or not.

If no, we may suggest you to enable driver verifier again, as the dumps are saying nothing specific

Arc,

The only thing attached to the pc is a a HP wireless mouse & keyboard that came with the pc. I did plug a Western Digital (My Passport) HDD to the pc to back up my files when I first started getting the crashes but removed it after the backup completed.

OK, then enable Driver Verifier.

Run Driver verifier for the next 24 hours or the occurrence of the next crash, whichever is earlier. When over, let us know, thet the subsequent dumps , if any.

So, you are to update your graphics driver. Get it from AMD Support & Drivers.

Do a system restore to a point just earlier than the driver install.

Then install the driver following the method: Driver Install - Device Manager.
Point the driver update wizard to the downloaded driver.

Sorry for the lapse in time Arc. The pc crashed during the restore process And after that I couldn't get it to boot up at all.
I ended up doing a clean reinstall from a downloaded ISO following GregRocker's tutorial. It took 3 attempts to complete the install. I installed the video drivers from AMD as per your instructions as soon as I could. Started using the pc yesterday morning and it hasn't given me any problems yet.
I again THANK YOU for all your help & suggestions.
I will give it another couple of days and if no problems arise I will mark this thread as solved.
