Laptop Shutting Down


I have come back to my laptops serveral times now and I get the message saying Windows has recovered from an unexpected shut down. My laptop is a Sony Vaio VPCEC1M1E. I have attached the Minidump files and would be grateful if someone could please take a look and let me know what the problem might be?
