Windows 7: BSOD almost weekly

Windows 7 Professional 64 bit
BSOD almost weekly

Hello, I am having trouble with a Dell Inspiron 1520 with BSOD's almost once a week.
BSOD seem to be related to various drivers:


I updated the video driver to the latest NVidia driver but it still gives the BSOD.

I ran a memtest with no errors so i don't think is a memory issue.
