Windows 7: BSOD while playing videos or playing games (LoL) Error STOP : 0x00007A

BSOD while playing videos or playing games (LoL) Error STOP : 0x00007A

Hello sevenforums Community,
since about month im getting Bluescreens, which never happened before in 4 years.
It usually get the when i watch streams on twitch (which didnt happen since 1 week on my account though) or currently while playing League of Legends.
But they dont come every game, so i can for example play 4 games in a row and nothing happens or i get 3 one them in one game. Also they can come at any game time. It is kind of random to me how they appear.
The last two days I got about 7 so i really need help from u guys.
In the last two weeks i always got this message (STOP : 0x00007A (0xFFFF6FC50023598,0xFFFFFFFFC000000E,0x000000002A991880,0xFFFFF8A0046B30BE) ) without a sound and the pc didnt instantly reboot.
But the last days the Blackscreen stayed like 4 second so i couldnt see the error message on it, so i dont know if the error changed but there was this buzzing sound.

I really appreciate help (and sorry for my english skills ^^)

An attempt was made to access a pageable (or completely invalid) address at an
interrupt request level (IRQL) that is too high.  This is usually
caused by drivers using improper addresses.
If kernel debugger is available get stack backtrace.

Do you have the Atheros Network Adapter installed on your PC? If so, please update it and let us know.
The other dmp file wasn't too helpful - not sure if it was my windbg or if it was just corrupted.

Also can you run chkdsk?

I'm no BSOD expert but I do know 2 gigs of ram is not enough to do much on a Windows 7 Ultimate/64.

Where did you get your copy of Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit?

Windows 7 Professional x64

@Layback Bear 2 GB isnt much but Win 7 Professional x64 is running since years on this laptop, which i got from my uncle. So about 2 months ago i wanted to get rid of all the unneeded files and installed Windows 7 Professional again with a iso and the Product Key which is on my laptop. So its legally bought and only ran on Win 7 Prof x64.

*Edit: I just realised u asked for Windows 7 Ultimate x64 which i dont have :) (sry for the false info i gave im updating it)

@carz95 Yeah i have a Atheros Network Adapter (as well as a PCI-E Ethernet Controller from Artheros) and with my last Windows Update (was around 2 days ago) both got updated but i will search for the newest version for if necessary.

And yes i ran chkdsk quite a few times (sometimes after a Bluescreen it starts automatically) and in the Event Viewer i couldnt find the chkdsk log as described in the tutorial, but the wininit log. I can post it but its in german i dont know how to change that

In case the dm log zip was corrupted here is another one :

Thanks for your help guys i really dont know what to do
