There is no new crash dumps after that od 22nd March, that means you may have not got a BSOD, but it was a random restart.

But in the absence of data, it is difficult to find out the actual cause of the reset.

In the situation, it is the best idea to start afresh. Follow Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.

I am going to be pretty busy until at least next weekend so I don't have the time to do this process for a while. In the mean time I will post if anything else happens.

Well, it has been quite a while without a mystery reset! Knock on wood, I think we may be there!

Display driver caused the BSODs there.

Reset again. I was using it this time, browsing eBay listings and got a BSOD and a restart.
Thanks again for all your help.
