BSOD randomly on booting 0x0000004a, please help!

Hello, I have been noticing random BSOD but only on booting. Seems to be no obvious pattern causing it.


Looking in BlueScreenView just tells me its the ntoskrnl.exe, other than that i am a newbie to this kind of analysis
I was okay with this until today and i opened a video file and Bam, BSOD same error and pc reboots.
I thought is that for real? tried the same file, yes it is. other files are okay though.

Please help me figure this out its becoming really annoying.
I have attached the DM log collector file.

Thanks in advance
