Thanks for the dump file, it'll help in narrowing down things. The crash occurred in win32k.sys - a core Windows system file. Although this is where the crash occurred, it's not necessarily the reason for the crash.
The parameter c0000005 indicates that the crash occurred due to a memory operation. The actual operation was that it was told to access a memory location that did not exist.
The process name that it's associated with is spoolsv.exe. This is the Microsoft Printer Spooler Service and is another critical part of the OS.
So, in short, there's a problem with a driver accessing memory that doesn't exist and the print spooler is involved in this. So, I'd suggest uninstalling your printer to see if the BSOD events stop. If they do, then download a new copy of your printer driver from the manufacturer's website and install that.
If they don't stop, then it's likely that either remnants of the driver remain (and are causing the BSOD) and need to be removed or that there's a corruption in the Microsoft Printer Spooler Service. If the latter, then we may have to resort to SFC.EXE /SCANNOW or a repair install to correct it.
Another option is to enable Driver Verifier (without uninstalling anything), and see if it'll force a BSOD which names the driver (you'd have to perform an analysis of the BSOD event to locate it). To enable Driver Verifier, use this link: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/244617
Two important points when using Driver Verifier:
1) Only verify unsigned drivers at first. Verifying all drivers will seriously slow the system down.
2) When done, run Driver Verifier and select "Delete existing settings" to stop it from running. If you don't do this, you'll experience some slowdown as Driver Verifier continually tries to verify your drivers.
