Windows 7: Frequent freezes and various bsods

Frequent freezes and various bsods

Hi, my pc randomly freezes and/or give different bsods. When I used the dm log collector the pc froze two times, had to force restart. The third time luckily managed to finish the data extraction.
I have just finished a memtest test, did 8 passes, no errors, so I guess the RAM is fine.
I also have recently updated the drivers, but the problems are still here.

For context: these problems actually began last summer, with an increasing number of random bsods. At the beginning I tried to keep note of them, but every time it was a different one, and was rather difficult to find leads. Then the pc began freezing constantly, to the point it would froze after a few seconds, even during startup or in safe-mode.
Not exactly sure about what to do, I opened it up, cleaned it thoroughly, and it worked! The pc no longer had problems.
However six months later they started again. This time the freezes were kinda different, there were loud crackling noises from the speakers, even when no audio was playing at the moment, and sometimes the video on the screen would be severely distorted.
I did the cleaning again, and it worked for a couple of months. I want to point out it wasn't incredibly dirty, actually it seemed mostly clean, but I cleaned it anyway. I even reapplied the thermal paste.
But now the problems came back again, I guess cleaning it's just a temporary solution, I want to fix it for good this time. So I came asking for your help guys.
Thanks for helping me.

Thank you.
I'll try to get a pic, but I have I can't predict when a bsod will appear, it's too random. And they tend to be different between each other.
Is my log not enough?

Your log only includes a log from April. If you snap a picture i'll see if the HDD is failing.

That's strange, I collected the log exactly after I had a bsod.
Well, I'm going to wait for the next one.

Hi, I'm running the verifier, the pc is kinda slow now. I read I can still use it during the process, but I have to let the pc run for 24h straight, or can I turn it off and resume at another time?

24 hours straight, and yes the computer runs very slowly because verifier is running.

Ok, I did it, no bsods or other errors came out. Do you think I should verify the Microsoft drivers too?
