    I've uploaded the two files in the zip attchment, and now let me explain the hardware... wich is kinda the painful part xD
    its it... an Asus g73jh

    Cpu: i7-720QM
    Gpu: Radeon HD5870M
    Ram: 8gb DDR3 1333MHZ (kingstone)
    Drive 1: 128gb SSD crucial C300 (with firmware 006, apparently is prone to freezes)
    Drive 2- Seagate Momentus 7200.4 500gb firmware 0003sdm1 (another freeze friendly drive, but with firmware 0001sdm1 or 0002sdm1 only APPARENTLY, not sure if it should be freeze-prone with my version)
    Windows 7 Home Premium 64

    do I miss something else?
    Thanks in advance to anyone that will help

    Your error is 0x3B and these are often caused by faulty video card drivers. In fact your dump specifically cites the ATI driver atikmdag.sys. Therefore...

    1. Download Driver Sweeper free version to your desktop screen and install.

    2. Download the latest diver(s) for your video card but don't install them.

    3. Uninstall your video card drivers and reboot your PC into Safe Mode. Run Driver Cleaner Pro or Driver Sweeper but ONLY for the video card drivers. I had someone use it on their chipset drivers! If it doesn't find any video card drivers that is quite okay; just leave all other drivers alone.

    4. Reboot and install new video card drivers.
