Windows 7: BSOD won't let me work for two minutes!

03 Apr 2013   #1

BSOD won't let me work for two minutes!

My W7 laptop (Dell) keeps restarting by itself!
A couple seconds after I usually log in, my computer goes to a blue screen which tells me it did that because it needs to take caution and stop because there was a problem. After it does that, it restarts again and does the same thing over and over. I've had this problem for about two months now, and it just got worse today. If I'm ever lucky, I can browse for 20 minutes - 4 hours, but now it just takes 2 minutes to go to that horrible blue screen. I'm currently writing and essay on it and I've lost my work multiple times! The essay's due this Monday and all of my work is on there, and I really can't start over since it's 5 pages worth with 19 to go. I don't have heating problems and I've uninstalled any useless downloads. Apparently I have a BSOD and I don't know how to fix it if I can't even stay on the computer for 4 minutes! I cannot go anywhere to get it fixed at this point either because it is my Mom's computer which I am borrowing for this essay and I need it back to her Monday working good as new. I'd like to get the problem solved by tomorrow since I still have a ton to write. Please help!

BSOD every 10 minutes.
I've had like 30 BSOD's over the past 2 days. I've checked on things and it's mainly when I start uTorrent. After a few minutes, it BSOD's. It's mainly .sys that is listed in the memory dumps. Had one .exe listed. They were nwifi.sys, nvlddmkm.sys, tcpip.sys, athrxusb.sys, ntkrnlmp.exe, pacer.sys,...
