Weird BSOD no Error Code

I am getting the weirdest blue screen error when the error occurs what happens is that the computer randomly freezes to the blue screen but the blue screen is covered with colored staticy stripes going horizontally and vertically on my screen, the blue screen with the staticy stripes stay there for a good 3-5 seconds then just restarts my computer like nothing happened.
Edit: Also sometimes the error occurs when i start up the computer , and sometimes it can take hours before the error occurs

Hello cmuamar.

Last day you have got six crashes, and every one is different from the other one. And they are not showing any cause of the crashes, even in a deeper search. So let us troubleshoot from the very basic.

Scan the system for possible virus infection.
And, which Antivirus do you use? I have failed to find one there. Use Microsoft Security Essentials as your antivirus with windows inbuilt firewall, and free MBAM as the on demand scanner.
Download, install and update those, and then run full system scans with both of them, one by one, too.

Test your RAM modules for possible errors.

Run memtest for at least 8 passes, preferably overnight.

Stress test the CPU.

The display driver is very old.

Update your ATI/AMD display driver.
You can get it from the link in our forum, Latest AMD Catalyst Video Driver for Windows 7, or you may go to AMD Graphics Driver and Software and opt for Automatically Detect and Install the appropriate driver for your card.

During installation, you may opt for advanced installation, and install the display driver only, not the Catalyst Control Center.

If you fail to find aa matching driver here, search in Dell's site.

Same comment goes for your network drivers, too.

Search either in ATHEROS drivers for Microsoft Windows (Atheros?????), or in Dell's site.

Update it from Ethernet NIC Driver Downloads | Broadcom.

Run the Dell Diagnostics utility, to test your hardware, too.
