Windows 7: Occasional BSOD, now cannot boot besides safe mode

Occasional BSOD, now cannot boot besides safe mode

As mentioned in my previous thread some time ago, my computer has been prone to BSODs since I got it. I always assumed it was software-related as it never happened in safe mode. Today I was working on a word document with music in the background and the music made a grinding hanging noise like my computer was about to crash, I lost my video signal, then the song finished and my playlist stopped. Numlock stopped working so i reset the computer, now it boots up until the winds splash screen, which finishes normally but I lose my video signal right after this. If I boot in to safe mode it runs fine.

I have tried windows restore (to a point prior to a windows update I did 2 days ago), and it has run the startup repair tool with no success ('cannot automatically repair the error'). I have tried rolling back my video driver and updating to the most recent one. No change in computer's functionality. Any help at all will be appreciated, I have included the BSOD crash log info in here for what it is worth, though this particular incident was not associated with a BSOD to my knowledge.
