BSOD seemingly random but several times a day

Hi y'all, I'm having troubles on my Windows 7 machine. Its giving me random BSOD and i need help.

My system specs are up to date on my profile and i have attached the needed files to this post. I sure hope you can help.

But for completeness sake here are my specs :
Windows 7 x86 Ultimate Retail Upgrade installed next to an XP Pro
Athlon 4850e Dual Core Proc
4 Gb internal memory
about 8 HDD some IDE some SATA, OS running on an 240GB SSD

Some harddisks are getting old.

Thnx, it was certainly part of the problem i updated the RAID driver and that made it less frequent. I then changed the RAID controller and that seemed to solve it completely. Thanks again!
