Mate, as per the BIOS version/date, it appears to be in warranty still. Can you connect with the vendor and let them know about the issue?

Hey mate,

It turns out it was a hardware problem, it had something to do with power supply, as you've said it was under warranty, and now everything is back on track, but anyways I just wanted to thank you so much for trying to help a complete stranger

Keep up a good job Arc and all the best!

Hey mate, hmmm crashes are still here.. After I've replaced power supply, I can play a game a bit longer than before but eventually it just crashes (game freezes, there is a strange buzzing sound for a sec, and than reset)
All of my crashes are like I've described here in the brackets, even before the hardware change..

Please check it out, thanks!!

Do one more thing. Download and install Memeter. During gameplay, Alt+Tab and see the desktop, observe the memory utilization. If it is gradually increasing and approaching to 100%, it might be a issue that you have insufficient memory/graphics memory.
Code:
Adapter RAM    1.00 GB (1,073,741,824 bytes)

This is weird, Memeter is showing strange result even when PC is idle, either it is too high or it is showing free memory in percentages which is kinda strange...
I'll upload a screenshot for you, there is a comparison with built in win7 resource monitor, hope you'll wake better sense out of it

Apparently what I am seeing that it is showing the same thing in all the three places.

See the state of free memory during gameplay .... is it even reducing gradually?

I've been playing a little bit, and nothing has happened this time, and I was checking Memeter from time to time, it didn't even budge during gameplay, and I was playing FarCry 3 which is demanding game.. Have no idea what is going on with my pc but this time it worked without problems.

One more question: I have 8gb RAM memory, and when idle only have 2,5gb, isn't that a bit too low or am I mistaking?

Sorry if I'm being a pain

This memory usage is not very abnormal, as there is a fail usage of standby memory. In my best guess, what is insufficient is your video memory. As you are saying that it is a demanding game, perhaps the video memory becoming full and causing the problem.
