Windows 7: BSOD playing Fallout: New Vegas/Random BSODs during startup

I'm sorry I keep uploading corrupt .dmp files. I'm getting the .dmp files from C:\Windows\Minidump... how do I obtain a non-corrupted version?

It did blue screen a few times but there was only 1 recent .dmp file present which was the one from this morning. I'm currently installing the System Update Readiness Tool. I thought I already had SP1 installed but a quick update check showed that it wasn't installed. Thank you for the reply. I'll keep you updated on what happens.

Okay, so I played a stable session of New Vegas lastnight, but earlier today and about an hour ago, it gave me some more BSODs.

Here are the .dmp files. I am not aware if they are corrupt or not. I have heard that if your minidumps are corrupted, they are not being saved properly due to a hardware problem. Is that true?

Making progress.


1-ASACPI.SYS

The pre 2009 version of this driver is a known BSOD cause.

Please visit this link: ASUS teK Computer Inc. -Support- Drivers and Download P7P55D LE
ASUSTeK Computer Inc. -Support- Drivers and Download P7P55D LE

Scroll down to the Utilities category, then scroll down to the "ATK0110 driver for WindowsXP/Vista/Windows 7 32&64-bit" (it's about the 12th item down).
Download and install it.
Go to C:\Windows\System32\drivers to check and make sure that the ASACPI.SYS file is date stamped from 2009 or 2010 (NOTbefore).

Okay so I replaced ASACPI.sys with the newer 2009 version by installing it with the ATK0110 Utility. I checked the date stamp and everything was good to go. It still caused BSODs so I took out the hard drive and replaced it with another one, re-formatted, and again, made sure I updated the ASACPI.sys file. It was running fine for a day but I got another BSOD about 30 minutes ago. Here is the newest .dmp file...
