Diagnostics

just simple diagnostic steps here run only your OS drive and see if crash still occurs if all is good introduce one drive at a time back into the mix and see what happens

Forgot to mention. My Primary Drive is SATA.

I got 3 other HDDs. 2 are SATA 1 is a PATA.
Are you running a raid configuration? Are SATA and PATA raid compatible?

I would start by running memtest86 to check your ram
Memory Diagnostics
run this for a min 5 passes or if poss leave running overnight
also run file system check from elevated command prompt
start>cmd.exe(right click run as admin)>type, sfc /scannow
this wiil check for any file corruption/errors
Also update all drivers/bios/chipset

Note: when updating drivers etc dont use win update go to manufacturers website for each individual components and download the latest software for your win version
I run the sfc /scannow and have no problems. I will try running yr Memory Diagnostics. Also if i go to my manufacturer's site to download the drivers, then how about the current ones I have installed? Just uninstall them and replace with latest or just run the drivers from the manufacturer straight away
Depends on the driver i normally uninstall old then install new to be sure but looking at your dumps there arent any drivers that are very old on your system so i wouldnt worry about that to much at the moment.
But memtest is the most important thing i would do as some of your dumps report memory corruption so it would be good to rule out ram soon as poss

Hope this helps post back your results

I reckon that the SATA HDD might be the issue and I'm guessing that no update will fix it, probably better to have your OS on a PATA HDD anyway as there faster and more stable.

Bios

update bios at own risk! if you are going to do it make sure you have the right bios if you try to load the wrong bios or even if you have the right bios and interrupt power or restart before bios flash is done and you will have a paper weight

AHCI

just make sure in your bios to set the SATA controller to IDE mode not AHCI or RAID

Please PATA drives are not better, looking at dumps i very much doubt this has anything to do with HDDs, nothing indicates hardware faults other than memory corruption

Memory

as Pauly suggested it could be memory corruption check one stick of ram at a time
