Frequent BSOD and System Restarts

May be a driver issue as running in Safe Mode seems to be okay. I've attached the requested files for you to take a look at. The only driver issue flagged in perfmon was my logitech illuminated keyboard.

All three are blamed on your video driver. I would also run a system file check to verify your system files and update the below drivers.

When upgrading your graphic driver you MUST remove all traces of the current driver. In order to do that we recommend using Guru3D - Driver Sweeper

When it is removed then download and install the fresh copy.

Run a system file check to verify and repair your system files.
To do this type cmd in search, then right click to run as administrator, then

read here for more information SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Let us know the results from the report at the end.

This is a very common bugcheck.  Usually the exception address pinpoints
the driver/function that caused the problem.  Always note this address
as well as the link date of the driver/image that contains this address.
Some common problems are exception code 0x80000003.  This means a hard
coded breakpoint or assertion was hit, but this system was booted
/NODEBUG.  This is not supposed to happen as developers should never have
hardcoded breakpoints in retail code, but ...
If this happens, make sure a debugger gets connected, and the
system is booted /DEBUG.  This will let us see why this breakpoint is
Arg1: ffffffffc0000005, The exception code that was not handled
Arg2: fffff88010bba2a3, The address that the exception occurred at
Arg3: fffff88004fa8668, Exception Record Address

Windows 7 Professional

Thanks. I followed your instructions:

1) Uninstalled NVIDIA Driver
2) Used Guru3D Driver Sweeper
3) Installed 64bit NVIDIA driver I obtained from NVIDIA web site
4) Ran sfc /scannow with no errors

My system remained stable last night and this morning (~3-4 hrs of use) and then I had another BSOD.

The system is a little less than 1 year old with no hardware changes. Looks like the Kernel Power Event ID 41's began August 30, 2010. Around Sep 9th I did a restore to a point prior to August 30 and that "fixed" things? until Sep 16th. Since then it's been getting much more frequent. I've had 9 events in the last 7 days with 1 in the last 24 hrs.

Seems there are a bunch of posts with commonalities like this.
