The website which 1029rjmenvy17t provided a link to deals with the dump files which the original poster provided.  The solution suggested by Patrick Barker is aimed at a specific bugcheck that appears to possibly be related to the CPU.  He has suggested a shotgun approach to narrow down the possibilities which may or may not produce a positive diagnosis.
This error usually is related to hardware, but it can on rare occasions be caused by a faulty driver.  Please do the following in order to provide us with more information.
