You're welcome for the help.

The minidump files various stop errors one of which was a WHEA_UNCORRECTABLE_ERROR (124) error. 

This would suggest a hardware problem.

I would suggest to test the RAM with a memory checker such as Memtest86+ and run a chkdsk/ r on the hard disk.

Running a chkdsk /r has the potential to take a long time and, as a general precaution, back up any critical files beforehand.

Sorry this didn't help.
