BSOD randomly when browsing or if computer left alone

My computer will BSOD randomly when I leave it alone for a bit or sometimes when just browsing online. I don't actually get a blue screen, the computer just freezes. After I manually reset the computer, there will be a windows recovery error message, I have attached the dmp files but I can't pinpoint what is causing the error

Hello afkmaster, Welcome to SF

Please post following Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions
The more info we have the better

All three dumps you uploaded have the same bugcheck code 0x101 clock watchdog timeout but unfortunately dont point at a specific cause
Check the temperatures in your machine for any signs of overheating if all ok then chances are it is prob a driver issue
Check event viewer for any critical errors that may give us a clue
Could try driver verifier to see if you can identify any misbehaving/wayward drivers

You have posted the same three dumps with nothing else
Please run the SF tool and click grab all then wait a couple minutes for the data to be gathered, when complete there should be a few txt files and an msinfo32 file as well as the dumps

Sorry about that, I have uploaded a new file with all the files. After I ran verifier, it seems like the driver that was crashing my computer was gdrv.sys, which looks like something to do with motherboard a GIGABYTE GA-P55-USB3 mobo, any thoughts? Looking around it seems like I can't rename the file since it will be re-generated. It might have to do with me using the @BIOS program to update my BIOS from windows instead of manually doing it through qflash.
