Windows 7: Random Crashes

I must say I usually update my drivers myself too. everything seems to be working (except the cardreader, which I never got working in the first place). So I was quite suprised you said that some drivers were outdated. Again thanks alot to you both for you support. Still no crash has occured so my hopes are up. I'll leave the computer on through the night and if there isn't a crash in the morning I'll tag this as solved.

Update: Ok so I've had no ploblems so far but tried starting up a game and it immediately crashed like I described in the first post. I've zipped the mindidump once more (Don't know if that even changed but better safe than sorry).

Update 2: so after posting the last update I started the same game and it instantly crashed again. after the reboot I tried a different game: worked fine. Went back to the previous game and it worked fine too. The game is called Heroes of Newerth and is currently in closed beta. Has worked fine so far with win7 didn't get the idea the crashes were centered around it.

Have update all the out of date drivers that I could find (and uninstalled the ones I didn't use) but It still crashes (bsod?) I don't think it's doing it randomly anymore but it does crash everytime I try to start a game. I'm pretty much out of Ideas here. Does someone know what I could do?

Your .dmp file points to a bad DirectX sys driver... download and reinstall DirectX ....

Reinstalled DX and tried starting up a game but still it crashes. (the game in question is Dragon Age: Origins) New dumpfile(4) added.

update: dit another system file check but it found nothing. And after a while I got a crash when trying to put on HD in a youtube movie I was watching full screen. I've added another dumpfile(5) from after that crash.

another dumpfile(6) from a crash when playing a game.

Only one dump file in the 3 files that you uploaded.
It points to the ATI display drivers.
Since you've udpated the ATI drivers, then I'd have to suspect a hardware issue with your video card.
Try another video card (if you don't have one to try, purchase one that you can return and try that).
