Windows 7: Crashing in Windows 7 in games

Crashing in Windows 7 in games

I am running windows 7 home 64 bit that came preinstalled on a Asus g60 laptop.
I have recently used the recovery disc to reformat and restore to factory settings. I've used this laptop for about a year and 4-5 months now.

I am thinking it could be a hardware problem since this seems to only happen when I'm playing games, but unsure. My comp will crash and I have to restart it. When I restart it a windows error comes up saying it was a BSOD error.

I've attached a minidump and an xml crash report that windows said described the problem. Also attached is the folder that the sticky required me to make.
