Your latest crash dump not showing any finite probable cause. In such a situation, it is better to enable Driver Verifier to monitor the drivers.

Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable

Run Driver Verifier for 24 hours or the occurrence of the next crash, whichever is earlier.

Let us know the results, with the subsequent crash dumps, if any.

Blue screened at 7pm. First with java and flash player running (does it quite a bit like that) and then upon pushing enter to log back in to windows following a restart.

Don't know if that information helps


Also, one blue screen error was 'paged area in non paged area' or something similar

The first one is caused by the display driver.

Update it from Latest NVIDIA ForceWare Video Drivers Windows 7.

But the other one, Page fault in non-paged area is not giving any information. If after updating the display driver it crashes again, enable driver verifier.
Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable
Run Driver Verifier for 24 hours or the occurrence of the next crash, whichever is earlier.

Let us know the results, with the subsequent crash dumps, if any.

Crashed 3 times after another.

First saying: cyfs.sys or cyls.sys error

second saying dxgkrnl.sys - driver over ran stack based buffer, overrun allow user to gain control

third, remaining stuck at 5% when writing the dump for 15mins

You first Do some disc checks.
  1. Update your SSD's Firmware (Skip it, if it is not a SSD)
  2. Re-seat the sata and power.
  3. Run chkdsk /f/r, following the option two of the tutorial Disk Check
  4. Seatool for dos: SeaTools | Seagate download
    Burn it in a blank cd. boot from the CD, click on "Accept", wait for it to finish detecting the drives, then in the upper left corner select "Basic Tests", then select "Long Test" and let it run.
Uninstall Spybot.
Use Microsoft Security Essentials as your antivirus with windows inbuilt firewall, and free MBAM as the on demand scanner.

Download and install those, and then run full system scans with both of them, one by one.


Rollback the graphics driver to an older one.
And, plan to update the BIOS. It is too old.
Code:
BiosMajorRelease = 8
BiosMinorRelease = 15
BiosVendor = American Megatrends Inc.
BiosVersion = V2.0S
BiosReleaseDate = 12/16/2008
Let us know the results.

I followed your steps.
The SSD resulted in the attached image. I configured the drive to IDE correctly.

Check disk found nothing.

Haven't ran Seatools yet since no free CD's, should be getting some today.

Uninstalled Spybot. Installed the NVidia driver as instructed.

Where would I go to find a BIOS update? Since I couldn't find any help

Also attached new logs

DRIVER_CORRUPTED_EXPOOL (c5)
An attempt was made to access a pageable (or completely invalid) address at an
interrupt request level (IRQL) that is too high.  This is
caused by drivers that have corrupted the system pool.  Run the driver
verifier against any new (or suspect) drivers, and if that doesn't turn up
the culprit, then use gflags to enable special pool.
Arguments:
Arg1: c1d00004, memory referenced
Arg2: 00000002, IRQL
Arg3: 00000001, value 0 = read operation, 1 = write operation

Also, your BIOS is very old. If possible, update it.
