BSOD 0xc2

I got my wife a refurb Dell Optiplex 360 and it's starting to have BSODs after just a few days. I've barely loaded any software on it, so I'm wondering what's going on. Attached is the ZIP file requested. Thanks for any help!

I've run the SFC /scannow and it found no problems either.

I was already a little suspicious of it going into sleep mode, and when I saw the ndis driver listed, I went and found a newer driver for the network card. I also turned off the "allow this device to wake from sleep" on the driver and so far no new crashes.

Have the BSOD issues been resolved?

Actually, about a week ago it got bad in a hurry and then wouldn't boot the next morning. One of the 2gb RAM sticks died completely. I've had it running on one stick for about 10 days now and no crashes, so that was most likely the problem.
