Windows 7: Random and frequent BSODs even while idling

Random and frequent BSODs even while idling

i am facing serious BSOD problem with my old asus laptop,
it can occur even while idling!!! the problem subsides if i turn off my laptop or keep it in hibernation for a while like 2-3 hours before occurring again. Once it starts there is no stopping it. i can pop up even while booting up or even while trying to load safe mode. I have faced similar problem like 2 months back, it died off on its own, now it has re emerged again.

its showing this message:
*** Hardware Malfunction
Call your hardware vendor for support
NMI: Channel Check/IOCHK
*** The system has halted ***

i have compiled a zip folder using log collector tool & attached it here

any help is appreciated

BSODS getting more frequent just idling BCCode: 1e
Unfortunately since the PC that is crashing is my file computer I don't have it actively on a monitor and have been unable to catch the BSOD message itself. All it does it sit there and idles most of the time. It seems that if I have something actively running on it the BSOD is delayed slightly...

frequent random BSODs
Hi folks. I've got a 6-month old OEM, original install of Win7 X64. Until a couple of weeks ago it was stable: no BSODs. Then there was one. Now I'm lucky if I can get through a session without one. They seem to be of random types, according to windbg, though there have been a number of ones...
