Hello JazzSus.

Your crash dumps are 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.

information   Information
Why Driver Verifier:
It puts a stress on the drivers, ans so it makes the unstable drivers crash. Hopefully the driver that crashes is recorded in the memory dump.

How Can we know that DV is enabled:
It will make the system bit of slow, laggy.

warning   Warning
Before enabling DV, make it sure that you have earlier System restore points made in your computer. You can check it easily by using CCleaner looking at Tools > System Restore.

If there is no points, make a System Restore Point manually before enabling DV.

Tip   Tip

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

Follow the guide step by step: Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable

Make it sure that you are not selecting any microsoft or unknown provided drivers. Then let DV run.

Thank you Arc again. First did: went back to DV and disable > "Delete existing settings" >reboot
Run DV setup again and just select NOT unknown & MS signed drivers > reboot ...again puter just booted till "Welcome" screen and start rebootting again > entered SafeMode> run DV setup again and there was one driver still not selected> ticked that one> reboot and widows fully opend and running. Computer react slowly so I suggest DV is enabled. Will run for 24hrs and will see if any problems or BSOD's appeare. Be back.
