Windows 7: BSOD when computer idle or in use every 30 mins-2hours

BSOD when computer idle or in use every 30 mins-2hours

Wednesday night the 10th, I was watching TV and to my surprise when I turned on the monitor to my computer I got a message BOOT MGR is missing and had to cold restart my computer, I found out shortly after that my BIOS boot priority got chagned during the first initial crash, I reset it to my SSD, and it would boot. Every 30 minutes to 2 hours it will give me a hardware stop code BSOD.

I've disabled my secondary HDD for storage, posting the dump files, I've reseated all of the hardware and made sure the cables were tight. Any insight greatly welcomed.

I'm thinking its possibly the PSU or memory but i'm not sure, maybe one of you can point me in the right direction.

Edit, will repost with proper dump files

Well I found out why it wasn't created dump files, I ahve a Crucial m4 128gb SSD, and the firmware was outdated with about 8000 hours of use on it, after 5000 hours the sata port was having trouble detecting it and it would become undetected causes the OS to crash. Only powering off and repowering caused it to be detected, after upgrading firmware to latest version no problems.
