Windows 7: Random freezes then PC restarts; AMD CPU

Random freezes then PC restarts; AMD CPU

Hey all, for the past few days I've been having a strange issue where my computer would lock up for a few seconds, and then restart. When I get back to my desktop, it says that the error was a BlueScreen (though I never see a blue screen). My last minidump file (which has vanished after I opened it in WinDbg) gave me this: FAILURE_BUCKET_ID: X64_0x124_AuthenticAMD_PROCESSOR_BUS_PRV, but I can't make any sense of it. Any help? My CPU is an AMD Phenom II X4 955 BE. This usually seems to only happen whenever I'm running Firefox, either alone, or with other programs.

EDIT: Memory diagnostic shows up clean and sfc /scannow shows no errors on either my SSD or HDD. CPU temps are fine as well, no overheating. I haven't overclocked it, either.

EDIT 2: Happened again. Here's the dump:

A fatal hardware error has occurred. Parameter 1 identifies the type of error
source that reported the error. Parameter 2 holds the address of the
WHEA_ERROR_RECORD structure that describes the error conditon.
Arg1: 0000000000000000, Machine Check Exception
Arg2: fffffa80079d88f8, Address of the WHEA_ERROR_RECORD structure.
Arg3: 0000000000000000, High order 32-bits of the MCi_STATUS value.
Arg4: 0000000000000000, Low order 32-bits of the MCi_STATUS value.

Debugging Details:

BUGCHECK_STR: 0x124_AuthenticAMD

Thanks, I've now got the BSOD log program on my PC. I just performed a repair installation of W7, so I'm hoping that fixed the issue. If not and the BlueScreens continue, I'll get the log file up here soon.

Well, the repair install didn't fix anything... Happened to me again a few minutes ago. Here's the folder created by SF Diagnostic Tool.

It keeps happening. It's happened about 4 times in the last two hours, which is extremely frustrating. New log files here.
