When do you get these errors? At a POST screen, during login, or when you launch an application?
Can you boot into safe mode?
What did you do before these errors started occurring?

Go to the directory C:\Windows\Minidump
Make sure that you can see hidden files
Then zip up all the files you see in that directory.
Attach the zip archive to your next post.

Thank you Broni for those detailed steps.

Open Windows Explorer (Start>All Programs>Accessories).
Navigate to: C:\Windows\Minidump folder.
If you see any .dmp files, zip all of them, and attach zipped file to your next reply.

To zip a file...
Download, and install 7-zip: http://www.7-zip.org/
Right click on a file, you want to zip.
Click 7-zip, then Add to archive.
Click on drop-down menu, next to Archive format, and select zip format.
Click OK.
You'll find zipped file (.zip extension) in the same folder as the original file.
