First of all, im pretty tech savy and usualy fix all mine and friends computer problems (combo of experience and google used to be enough for everything). This has me out of my depth at the moment tho:
When playing a video from HDD (doesnt matter what player, tried BS, VLC) the sound dissapears after a time. Ive found out that at the same time streamed video on youtube or facebook loses crashes as well (both stop playing and give error message that something went wrong). 
Another symptom i found is that you cant pause/unpause video played from HDD anymore, it just doesnt start again. If you reopen the file all is good again for a random period.
Tried reinstalling drivers and eventually also did a system image restore to some time a year ago, but that installation was fine when the image was created (it lasted me a year obviously :) ).
Maybe, but hopefully not relevant info (hopefully because it would lead me to believe its hardware connected): Before i did system restore i installed Tomb Rider over Steam, tried to run it when i got a BSOD. After the reboot following i got multiple missing .dll errors after windows logon, as well as reports of crashing programs like DropBox. I was kidding around a bit, trying to figure it out, until i gave up few days later and restored image of state of clean install a year before.

Attached is a image of mentioned BSOD and my DxDiag for spec of the PC:
Any help or ideas of what to try MUCH appreciated. Thanks <3
