BSOD and frequent app crashes

i always encounter app crashes in web browsers(i usually use firefox, but even IE it still crashes), windows explorer, watching movies. it just crashes after 20-30 mins from startup. i barely finished one movie without a crash. BSOD happened wheni tried playing zynga poker(Facebooks apps), first was just app crash in firefox, but when i continuously restart the browser when crashes BSOD happen.

here i attach the minidump files:
hope anybody will help me figure out this problem
here are the specifications that i know about this laptop:
amd turion 64 x2
nvidia geforce 8600m GS
sorry i don't know much more about specs
(note: i already tried to change RAM and HDD and still the prolem exists)

These dump were caused by several factors. First some drivers dating back to 2006 that sorely need to be updated. Second a system file was referenced so I would run a system file check
(type cmd in search>right click and run as admin>sfc /scannow)

Finally and most importantly I would download a 3rd party app called memtestx86, burn it to cd and run it for at least 7 passes to test your memory.

Usual causes: Defective hardware (particularly memory - but not just RAM), Faulty system service, Antivirus, Device driver, NTFS corruption, BIOS

first thank you for the immediate response..
and 2nd sorry but im having a hard time updating the drivers, please give me an idea how to update the drivers stated there as old. all i know in updating drivers is just for audio, video etc, and i don't know where that old drivers stated there belongs and how to update them
-for now i am not using antivirus, though scanned this computer regularly with malwarebytes
-for bios i had already tried to flash it, still no effect.
- system file check found corrupt files and successfully repaired them(it is not the first time i ran this check but before results found no corrupt files)
-successfully run memtest86 til 10 passes no errors found
but still i encounter BSOD a minute earlier while playing facebook app(zynga poker, i usually test this computer through that app because it usually crashes browser instantly or worst BSOD) and heres the minidump file:

3rd party drivers mentioned directly as probable causes were nvmfdx32.sys and RTKVHDA.sys

So you should focus on fixing those 2 issues.

However there were also other 3rd Party out of date drivers that could be causing havoc.
Code:

nvmfdx32.sys Sat Aug 02 06:37:49 2008 (489357FD)
nvsmu.sys    Mon Aug 25 22:22:50 2008 (48B287FA)

VSTAZL3.SYS  Thu Oct 16 13:30:03 2008 (48F68B0B)
VSTCNXT3.SYS Thu Oct 16 13:29:13 2008 (48F68AD9)
VSTDPV3.SYS  Thu Oct 16 13:32:04 2008 (48F68B84)
Top 2 drivers - Part of the nVidia chipset (nForce) driver package. Update from here: Drivers - Download NVIDIA Drivers

Next 3 drivers are related to the 56k modem installed in your computer, update from your computer manufacturer's website.

Note that RTKVHDA.sys is very much up to date with a timestamp of Tue Jun 08 21:06:12 2010, which makes it much more likely that it is hardware that is causing your BSODs.

Also in the oldest minidump in that latest zip file dxgkrnl.sys was mentioned. Being the Direct X graphics Kernel it means that that BSOD was graphics related. Your graphics driver is up to date so I would also suspect hardware here.

You say that you have done the memtest and it passed?

Try the graphics stress test just incase there is a hardware fault in your graphics card; but considering that only one BSOD was graphics related this is unlikely.

Graphics Stress Test:

- If you have more than one GPU, select Multi-GPU during setup
- In the Run mode box, select "Stability Test" and "Log GPU Temperature"
Click "Go" to start the test
- Run the test until the GPU temperature maxes out - or until you start having problems (whichever comes first).
- Click "Quit" to exit
Also - what PSU are you using?

first and foremost thank you so much for paying attention with this problem. for about 3 months aside from work i spent all my time trying to figure out this problem and almost decided to junk this machine.
well i had updated the drivers stated as old but it seems that 2 nvidia drivers(nvmfdx32.sys and nvsmf.sys) were the latest available. i tried to run a memtest86 again for about 24hours, at least 10 passes and some tests for 50 or more passes but no errors found. i had stressed the graphics card but no problem found.
now i'd like to focus on sound card, i had disabled it in device manager but still i experienced crashes. is there any other way to test or troubleshoot the soundcard. i want to make sure that this is not the cause of the crashes, was it enough that i had disabled it in device manager(but still crashes occur) to conclude that soundcard is not the culprit?
for PSU im sorry i don't know much about it and how to know what kind is my psu. tried to google but it only made me more confused. again thank you for the attention..
heres the dumps on recent bsods:
