Windows 7 Home Premium x64
Computer randomly freezes every 40-50 minutes.

So the problem started a while back on my Acer Aspire v3-571g about a few weeks ago ( not exactly sure of the exact date ) and since then i've been searching for a "cure". Here are my logs. I hope someone here can help as i'm no good at this. unable to upload it here, so here it is on dropbox.
BTW, my system specs are as follow:
i7-3610QM @2.3ghz
2x4gb ddr3 1333mhz ram
750gb hdd
nVidia GeForce GT640M 2gb
