Windows 7: BSOD graphics/display issue(?) seems to be random. Advice appreciated!

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit Version 6.1.7601 SP1 Build 7601
BSOD graphics/display issue(?) seems to be random. Advice appreciated!

Been fighting this for a while and need some expert help. I'm beginning to think it really is a hardware problem, but you know that's not likely. Tried updating, uninstalling, reinstalling and all the normal easy stuff but to no avail.

BSOD arrives without rhyme or reason and not during any specific activity. Earlier today actually crashed just a few min after boot before I even touched the machine.

Right before BSOD appears, the screen goes haywire... looks like a mish-mosh of pixels, a multi-color horror show smudged across the frozen screen. Then a few seconds later, the too-familiar blue follows with a variety of explanations (at least that's what it looks like to me.)

Feels like this laptop was dropped on its head.

I've uploaded the zip file which hopefully has all the system DNA needed to decode.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

Thanks americancritic, well understood and thanks for the welcome. FYI, some of those *.dmp files pre-date this behavior, which started for real around June/July last year. Yep it is a pretty big bunch of files -
