Random BSOD DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL ntoskrnl.exe

Hello,

I have been randomly receiving BSODs for quite some time however it appears to be occurring with more frequency now. There hasn't been a specific program running that appears to be linked to the BSOD. One thing to note is that it has never BSOD while doing basic tasks like Internet browsing and watching Netflix only does it when playing PC games with/without Skype in the background.

Here the following errors I have been getting recently:
0x000000d1
0x0000003b
0x00000050
0x0000007e

My system:
Custom Build PC
Windows 7 Ultimate x64bit

Attached is the Zip file as requested. I've also attached more detailed info about my computer's specs.

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. Post it following the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions.

And, which antivirus do you use?

I rebooted with DV enabled. Should I open any programs that have caused a BSOD in the past?

Yes, try to replicate the BSODS, by performing the most crash prone actions.

I got my computer to crash 4 times without a BSOD by playing games that usually give me one. What do I do now?

In that case, it is most likely to be game specific. Contract the game developer in their site of forum, they will supply you the necessary patches and appropriate settings etc.
