Windows 7: Intermittent BSOD, possibly video card issue?

Intermittent BSOD, possibly video issue?

Hello, I've recently set up a "new" (refurbished) PC for a client of mine, and it has been intermittently blue-screening with a locale id of 4105 coming up. While I'm pretty competent with computers in general, this is one aspect that I'm not really used to dealing with, so I thought I'd post here as opposed to possibly messing something up on the PC.

I noticed this happening after activating win 7 on the machine (first boot, and fresh install from the factory), so I don't believe that it's a software conflict with a program, unless of course the machine was improperly refurbished by staples. I also noticed that at one point during the setup of the computer (copying files over etc) the display drivers stopped working for a few seconds, but I was not able to re-cause it after.

Anyway, I've included a link to the minidump and userdata files below:

The pc's specs:

OS: Windows 7 Professional 64 bit

CPU: Intel Core 2 duo E8400 @3ghz

RAM: 4gb ddr2 @3898mhz

MoBo: Hewlett Packard 3031h

Graphics: X193w Intel Q45/Q43 express chipset (HP)

hard drive: 931GB Hitachi HDT721010SLA360

Any and all help would be appreciated, thanks!

Took a few days to be able to go to my client's house to get the data, but here's the DM collector file.

EDIT: Also just did a chkdsk, no problems found.
