Windows 7: Random BSOD. | "BCCODE 'a' | STOP 0x0000000A: IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL"

Random BSOD. | "BCCODE 'a' | STOP 0x0000000A: IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL"

So recently I purchased a new gaming computer. Everything was fine for a few days but then I got a random BSOD. I thought it was just a simple error, I restarted my computer and continued about my business.

However, the BlueScreen keeps occurring on a COMPLETELY RANDOM basis. By this, I mean I could be on Facebook, on a game or even on the desktop and it will occur. I don't have time to take a picture of the BlusScreen as it clears and the computer restarts in a matter of seconds. In the thread, I have attached the .zip folder which contains the result of the diagnostic tool. It would be VERY appreciated if someone could read through the files and be able to give me and idea on whats wrong with the computer, as I don't want to leave it at the shop I bought it from for a few days....

Also, it would be helpful if someone could tell me what "STOP 0x0000000A: IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL" actually means.

Thanks in advance for any help given, it is greatly appreciated.

For knowing about stop 0xA, read here: BSOD Index

Test your RAM modules for possible errors.
How to Test and Diagnose RAM Issues with Memtest86+
Run memtest for at least 8 passes, preferably overnight.

It it comes clean, 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.
