BSOD happens anytime. bug check code 0x00000101

Hi Guys,

I've read other thread similar but lots of the answer have to do with the specifics of the hardware being run on the pc so i've started my own. I'm sorry if that was inappropriate. I will occasionally wake up in the morning, or come home from school/work to find a BSOD. I also get crashes while i'm gaming but that typically just hangs or makes a TERRIBLE noise from the speakers (not the tower).

Here is the information. please let me know what i'm missing, i'm new to all this and learning. I appreciate the time anyone spends on this helping.
