Windows 7: Random reboots for no reason

Yeah, after I got the BSOD and restarted, I got a notification that a report file or something was created in the windows folder, although I don't remember where it is located exactly. Anyway, here is a new report attached, hope it helps.

Can you get back into Windows? Or only into safe mode?

The report you uploaded doesn't have any new minidumps. Your event log shows you had a BSOD but it saved it to a memory dump and not a minidump.

Ahh. I can get back into normal windows fine, I'm running it right now with no problems. After the failed SP1 install, reboots starting happening a bit more frequently, so I restored to a point I created prior to SP1, everythings fine in that regard.

Ok. Try running driver verifier again but don't install anything. Just use your computer how you were and if it crashes upload a new report.

Okay, I let my computer idle in Driver Verifier mode for about 3hrs while I went out, and normally when I let it idle for 10-30min, it reboots. This time it didn't. Does this help you identify anything?

Yeah, I took it out of Driver Verifier mode because it was slowing my computer down a lot and I wasn't getting any reboots. I didn't install anything like you asked. It was also causing my computer to BSOD on startup too.

What was the BSOD on startup saying? Did it create any memory dumps?

It gave me a weird error code that I couldn't understand and it did create a memory dump but I can't remember where it is located exactly. It's in the windows files under temp or something. Where could I find it? I would love to upload it on here if I can find it.

Also, before whenever I searched System Restore in the search bar and clicked on it and waited I could create a restore point etc. but now when I do it, it reboots while waiting for the options. It's slowly getting worse. This is a pain, no one identified what is wrong with this when its happened before. =(

Okay, here are my reports. I ran Memtest a few months ago for about 6hrs and nothing came up, but I'll do it again. As for the other two tests, what if my computer restarts when installing them? Can I install them in Safe mode or is their another way? It already rebooted once installing the seagate program.
