Your crash dumps are not showing any finite probable cause. In such a situation, it is better to enable Driver Verifier to monitor the drivers.
Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable
Run Driver Verifier for 24 hours or the occurrence of the next crash, whichever is earlier.

information   Information
Why Driver Verifier:
It puts a stress on the drivers, ans so it makes the unstable drivers crash. Hopefully the driver that crashes is recorded in the memory dump.

How Can we know that DV is enabled:
It will make the system bit of slow, laggy.

warning   Warning
Before enabling DV, make it sure that you have earlier System restore points made in your computer. You can check it easily by using CCleaner looking at Tools > System Restore.

If there is no points, make a System Restore Point manually before enabling DV.

Tip   Tip

Test your RAM modules for possible errors.
How to Test and Diagnose RAM Issues with Memtest86+
Run memtest for at least 8 passes, preferably overnight, per RAM module per slot.

Let us know the results, with the subsequent crash dumps, if any.

EDIT: The BIOS is very old.
Machine ID Information [From Smbios 2.3, DMIVersion 35, Size=1590]
BiosVendor = Intel Corp.
BiosVersion = AG91510J.15A.0816.2005.0214.1818
BiosReleaseDate = 02/14/2005
SystemManufacturer = EMACHINES                       
SystemProductName = T5010                           
SystemVersion =                         
BaseBoardManufacturer = Intel Corporation
BaseBoardProduct = D915GAG
BaseBoardVersion = AAC87709-303
Try to update it. Such an old BIOS should not handle a newer OS properly .... it is expected to fail.
