IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL ntoskrnl.exe BSOD

This is the second time I've gotten this one this week, but haven't gotten it before this week. It's a recent fresh install, maybe a month old. Here's the specs:

Gateway NV57H22u:
Intel i3-2330m 2.20GHz
6GB RAM
750GB SSD/HDD Hybrid
Intel HD Graphics 3000


Here is the BlueScreenView dump:

I cannot figure this out for the life of me, and I had this same problem BEFORE I made a fresh install on Win7, but that was a month ago.
Any help is appreciated, and I will post any other information if requested.

    It looks like DirectX is still the culprit here. Dissappointed that the driver update didn't fix it. I Because DirectX 11 in built-in to Win7, I can't re-install it, so I'm completely stumped.
