Windows 7: BSOD every time I try to play Dota 2

BSOD every time I try to play Dota 2

Hi new here so yah.

Lately i've been getting non stop BSOD whenever playing Dota 2 and even sometimes while not playing Dota 2. Majority of it happens every time I get into a game though. Dota 2 is the only game that does this. I can run Diablo 3 for hours with no BSOD or crashes and it requires a heavier load on the video card i believe. Before, it wouldn't BSOD on me but i have no idea what had happened to cause this problem. I have no idea what's wrong with my computer as i've formatted it to factory settings 4 times now with no prevail on this issue. I also have the current drivers for my video card (Radeon HD 6670).

The error message usually in the BSOD is "IRQL LESS THAN OR EQUAL"

You have given us two dmps (for two BSODs) they are not consistent. One indicates a driver the other memory. Since memory can cause every sort of problem, lets start with memory.
Run for 6 passes.
Then take each stick and run for 6 passes.
