Windows 7 ultimate 64 bit
BSOD & freezes every now and then


I got this new laptop with Windows 7 recently and have been experiencing freezes and BSOD almost everyday. The problem is random and does not need a trigger as such, can happen anytime, normally it gives a BSOD but sometime also freezes completely and the only option after that is hard boot.

Here are the details of my Laptop:

Processor: Intel® Core TM i5-460M, 2.53GHz
Display: 41.6 cm LCD, 1600x900
Graphics: NVIDIA® GeForce® 310M 512MB
Memory: 4 GB 1066MHz DDR3-SDRAM
Optical Drive: Blu-ray Disc(TM) writer
Hard drive: 320 GB Serial ATA (7200 rpm)
Wireless LAN: Wireless LAN + Bluetooth
Battery: Battery life up to 3 hours
Ports: 2 USB 3.0 + 1 e-SATA/USB 2.0
HDMI(TM) output: HDMI(TM) output
Operating system: Windows® 7 Home Premium(64bit) upgraded to Ultimate using built-in upgrade feature.

Attaching the dump files and files created by the tool 'Windows_NT6_BSOD_v3.03_jcgriff2_' from your website.

Please could you be able to check the files and let me know what could be wrong.

Your help is appreciated.

BSOD Screen freezes with red/blue/yellow horizontal lines then BSOD
This normally happens when I first start using the computer for the day. Sometimes when it happens there is a sound to it when it freezes but not always. Once the computer is going good for around 15-20mins then it no longer happens until the next reboot.
