Windows 7: BSOD after long period of shutdown on startup, random power shut off

BSOD after long period of shutdown on startup, random power shut off

Hi, this is my first time posting here in this forum because I am in desperate need of help on my computer. My computer gets at least ONCE BSOD every time I turn it on after a long period of shutdown. It also sometimes randomly just shuts off or give me additional BSODs. It has got to the point that I can't even load to windows recently, which lead me to reformat my computer. I know the drivers here are not the latest ones, I am trying to use only the drivers from the CDs that came with the hardwares because the last time I used all the latest ones it still caused BSODs. I am not sure what other information I need to post up. Please help with any advices possible, very much appreciated.

Results of test with OCCT

First off, thank you for helping me out with this problem. I really appreciate it.

My computer shut down once during the directx installation, but has been on since. I did everything you told me to do and uploaded the test results. There were no errors on the GPU: OCCT test, but I can not run the GPU: Memtest because it says my video card does not support some CUDA thing, something like GeForce 8 and up is required.

What should I do now?
