Windows 7: BSOD when playing The Sims 3

BSOD when playing The Sims 3

Unfortunately I do not use the computer myself so I cant explain many symptoms but recently playing The Sims 3 results in a BSOD on a machine perfectly capable of running it. The game is fully patched up to date and the fault is still occurring yet the fault did not use to occur at all, it was only after a week or so.

uploading the dump files in this post...

thanks guys
