Random BSOD's while computer was idle, and general surfing.

Random BSOD's while computer was idle, just after windows updated, and while on netflix, and while on youtube, i had updated the bios, and downloaded all drives, my only thought on why this could be happening is that when i first download drivers, they were blocked, but i installed them even when they were blocked, could this block be interfering with the drivers? my computer still hasnt crashed while playing games.

Would appreciate as much help as possible, ill try and upload the minidump flies. (there are 5 dump files)
