Windows 7: System crashing & freezing randomly for several months

This computer is 4-5 years old. Originally had Vista installed. Did a fresh install of Win 7 Pro x64when I bought the SSD drive.

In the last several months I have been upgrading it:

Installed 8 GB of 800MHz RAM - 4 months ago
Installed a Crucial M4 SSD drive - 2 months ago
Throughly cleaned all fans and the computer - 1 month ago
Replaced Power supply that had failed - 2 weeks ago

This has been driving me crazy for quite a while. Before I replace the motherboard and cpu I wanted to see if someone could decipher the log files for me.

I have played with the BIOS settigs quite a bit. It may be time for me to return to default values...

Any help is hugely appreciated!

Based on the age of your motherboard, it may not be able to handle an SSD. In my experience, any BIOS version older than 2011 will likely have compatibility issues with an SSD.

It is difficult to find patterns with only one .dmp file. Please refrain from using CCleaner to clean the disk as it deletes the .dmps we need for analysis. Your .dmp was inconclusive and may indicate a hardware issue, driver issue, service/startup conflict, BIOS issue, or compatibility issue. I am leaning toward the last two on the list given the SSD.
