    Ntoskrnl.exe - constant restarts (BTW, Memtest passed)

    I've been facing constant problems with BSOD (Ntoskrnl.exe) today. It happened for the first time about a month ago when I tried to update Opera (12.16 -> 17.0) but after many, many restarts, trying to run Windows in a "Safe Mode", restoring recovery points finally Windows started to work.
    I haven't tried to update Opera since then.
    Today... I don't know what happened because I went away of a computer (yes, guys, it's possible ) for a few minutes and when I came back I saw BSOD with 'DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL' error. I tried to find a solution on the Internet but I still don't know what else to do.

    When I run system in a Safe Mode with a 5th option (Safe mode with networking) everything works but when I try to run Windows normally - same situation as previously (reboot)...

    I added dump file as an attachment (111313-10140-01.txt).
    Please change the extension (txt -> dmp). I wasn't able to upload .dmp file to this forum. The second file (debuglog.txt) was created in a following way:
    Type the following:
    kd z C:\Windows\memory.dmp (or the path to your .dmp file)
    Type the following:
    .logopen c:\debuglog.txt
    Type the following:
    .sympath srv*c:\symbols*
    Type the following:
    .reload;!analyze -v;r;kv;lmnt;.logclose;q
    I found above-mentioned steps on Reading a memory.dmp or other .dmp file - Scott Forsyth's Blog The last but not least... About a month ago (when I had the same problems) I run Memtest for a whole night and it found no problems. I haven't tested other hardware yet.
    Please help me with this issue.

    Thanks in advance.

BSOD after sleep mode. Constant restarts after hibernate.
Whenever I put the screen down for the night, or after classes, when I open it up again, it informs me of an automatic restart due to a problem it has encountered with files in the Minidump folder and a Local sysdata.xml file. I have attached the file.
