Windows 7: BSOD while gaming

BSOD while gaming

So, I've been having BSOD problems every few moths for over 1 year. Usually it stops after a few days by itself, but now I don't want to accept it anymore.

The BSOD happens while i play games (for example League of Legends or Dota2). Usually after 5-10 mins max. I've tried to find the cause myself, but didn't have much success.

The usual BSOD i get is :

On Sun 4/7/2013 12:53:21 AM GMT your computer crashed
crash dump file: C:\Windows\Minidump\040713-26660-01.dmp
This was probably caused by the following module: ntoskrnl.exe (nt+0x66580)
Bugcheck code: 0xA (0xB48, 0x2, 0x0, 0xFFFFF8000359E64C)
Error: IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL
file path: C:\Windows\system32\ntoskrnl.exe
product: Microsoft® Windows® Operating System
company: Microsoft Corporation
description: NT Kernel & System
Bug check description: This indicates that Microsoft Windows or a kernel-mode driver accessed paged memory at DISPATCH_LEVEL or above.
This appears to be a typical software driver bug and is not likely to be caused by a hardware problem.
The crash took place in the Windows kernel. Possibly this problem is caused by another driver which cannot be identified at this time.

Today i got 1 more different BSOD for which i downloaded a hotfix and hopefully is enough :

On Sun 4/7/2013 12:08:31 AM GMT your computer crashed
crash dump file: C:\Windows\Minidump\040713-53757-01.dmp
This was probably caused by the following module: dxgmms1.sys (dxgmms1+0xEFDC)
Bugcheck code: 0x1000007E (0xFFFFFFFFC0000005, 0xFFFFF88004134FDC, 0xFFFFF88005B56918, 0xFFFFF88005B56180)
Error: SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED_M
file path: C:\Windows\system32\drivers\dxgmms1.sys
product: Microsoft® Windows® Operating System
company: Microsoft Corporation
description: DirectX Graphics MMS
Bug check description: This indicates that a system thread generated an exception which the error handler did not catch.
This appears to be a typical software driver bug and is not likely to be caused by a hardware problem.
The crash took place in a standard Microsoft module. Your system configuration may be incorrect. Possibly this problem is caused by another driver on your system which cannot be identified at this time.

Edit: I forgot to mention that sometimes my laptop shuts down instead of BSOD, and tries to restart 2-3 times, but each time only power light goes on, cooler starts, and laptop shuts back down. I don't think it's overheating, cause the keyboard is barely warm, and usually when it overheated (before cleaning it of dust) the keyboard was quite hot. I tried using ubuntu, and it seems to have no problem running it (no crashes, no shutdowns) so that gives me hope it's not a hardware issue with my BSODs.

I've attached my archive hoping someone can help me.
Thanks in advance!

The installed Windows Key is a Volume License one - where did you get it from? Unless it was from your college or employer, it's almost certainly counterfeit.
The Installed Office Pro is counterfeit - the Key was stolen from Microsoft itself many years ago and immediately blocked (in about 2004, as I recall).

In that case, it's fine - but you should uninstall the Office Pro, and replace it with a legal copy (probably also available through DreamSpark, assuming you still qualify).

Following Noel's instructions get all updates including Service Pack 1:
Learn how to install Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (SP1)

Use the System File Checker tool (SFC.exe) to determine which file is causing the issue, and then replace the file.

To do this, follow these steps:

Check a drive for errors:
1. Check a drive for errors
2. Check your hard disk for errors in Windows 7
3. Disk Check

Number down items at start-up. Keep only your anti-virus, this also improves the time for logging into windows.

1. Startup Programs - Change
2. Troubleshoot Application Conflicts by Performing a Clean Startup

Take memtest. Run for 8 passes and test each stick in a know good slot for an additional 6 passes.
RAM - Test with Memtest86+

Note   Note
Pay close attention to part 3 of the tutorial in order to rule out the faulty stick.

information   Information
Errors are sometimes found after 8 passes.

Tip   Tip
Do this test overnight, before going to bed.
