Windows 7: Win 7 Crashing issues

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Win 7 Crashing issues

I've had my PC for about a year and it has been relatively problem free. Last week, I swapped in a friend's (mostly) dead hard drive and had to use a file recovery program to save data from his drive. Since then, I have had sporadic crashing issues. I don't know if it is related, or maybe there was a Windows Update that caused these issues or what. It has crashed a couple times while I've been playing Fallout New Vegas, and once when I was just browsing the web.

Computer specs:
OS: Windows 7 Ultimate x64. Full retail, I guess (it's from my MSDN account).
CPU: AMD Phenom II X6 1055T Processor 2.80 GHz
Motherboard: ASUS M4A89GTD PRO/USB3
RAM: G.SKILL PIS Series 4x2GB DDR3 2000
Video Cards: NVIDIA GeForce 8400 GS, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 470 (3 monitors in use)
Hard Drives: Kingston SSDNOW 30GB (meant to be boot drive but actually only used as a dedicated swap drive), Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 SATA 1.5TB
PSU: Antec TruePower TP-750

The system is less than a year old, the OS installation is probably about 6 months old... I was running out of space on the SSD with the OS there, and finally had to reinstall the OS to the other HD.

Thanks in advance for your help. If there's anything I left out, please let me know.

Windows 7 64b Ultimate

Hello Nrfind, welcome to SF!

One of your dumps blames a usb driver/ device. The driver itself should be up to date through Windows Update. Have you connected any new usb devices recently?

Due to the variety of codes in your dumps, I'd normally start with memory.. .but in your case it could be as simple as freeing up space on your E: drive. That is where you have (a relatively large) Pagefile and you have less than 500MB free on a 27GB disk. Bound to cause problems.

Update old drivers:
