Windows 7: Random BSOD's on Win7 x64

Alright I'll look into it. I havn't overclocked or something, infact my RAM should be 1066Mhz but they have always been at 800Mhz...
Now it seems that every time I start the computer I get the BSOD, but after I restart it it always work fine somehow.

Please read the instructions that I posted above.
If Driver Verifier won't let you get into Windows, try Safe Mode
If it won't let you into Safe Mode, boot to Startup Repair.
In the Startup Repair menu is the option to use System Restore

AND, if you followed the directions, you'll have made a System Restore point
And that System Restore point will have the system settings WITHOUT Driver Verifier running.

Got a new one now:
REFERENCE_BY_POINTER

Never had it before. Posted it as attachment if someone is interested.

Alright have taken a while before I did this.
Anyway now after almost 2 days of testing with this, 1 BSOD while I had it on.
I will try a bit more, but the problem is that not don't get it as much with this "verifier" on. When I turn it off it happens more often.
And I do exactly the same things!
I even left my VLC on playing on while I went afk a few hours, but nothing...
I have added 2 BSOD, 1 during the verifier was on and another one that might be interesting also because it says which driver that caused it.


EDIT: Got 3 more in like 5 min, 1 during I was watching some series in VLC and then 2 I restarted the PC.
Although only 1 dump which I have uploaded.

The Driver Verifier dump file points to a Windows file (which it's not supposed to do).
Most likely there is a hardware issue, but it could be a Windows issue also.

Thanks for the answer.
I ran first the Benchmark test and it went fine. Then I ran the Stability Test for like 2h and it worked fine also...
1 of those dumps wasn't while I had that "Driver Verifier" on, but the rest was.

Isn't it wierd that on those dumps you posted it says VISTA_DRIVER_FAULT when I have Windows 7?

Boot uses more power than normal running , can you please tell us what power supply you are using ?

would also help if you could fill out your system specs in your profile, bottom left in any of your posts

what are your ram timings in your bios ?

They are 5-5-5-18, standard/auto.

Don't think it's heat really tbh. I have never got bsod while playing/3d mark test, but I'm not an expert. The temprature is always quite low also compared to what I have seen on other peoples computers.
