Recently I've been facing these BSODs, they only display once I shut down my computer and boot it back up; not upon restarting, if that is of any help.
I wrote down the error code displayed on the BSOD, it is as follows:
IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL
*** STOP: 0X0000000A (0X0000000000000000, 0X0000000000000002, 0X0000000000000000, 0XFFFFF800030D7CD4)

After finishing start-up recovery, "Windows has recovered from an unexpected shtudown" appears.
Additional information about this problem:
BCCode: a
BCP1: 0000000000000000
BCP2: 0000000000000002
BCP3: 0000000000000000
BCP4: FFFFF800030D7CD4
OS Version: 6_1_7601
Service Pack: 1_0
Product: 768_1

I also have WhoCrashed:

description: NT Kernel & System
Bug check description: This indicates that Microsoft Windows or a kernel-mode driver accessed paged memory at DISPATCH_LEVEL or above.
This appears to be a typical software driver bug and is not likely to be caused by a hardware problem.
The crash took place in the Windows kernel. Possibly this problem is caused by another driver that cannot be identified at this time.

I have tried reinstalling my graphics card's drivers, my java, I don't know what else to do :\

I don't know where to post this, but as I have Windows 7 I just stuck it under this category with the drivers Sub-category :S
Sorry otherwise.

-Thanks

Whats your PC specs ?

Have you replaced any hardware lately ? I will suggest you reseat your Ram Modules and Graphics Card.

Even better swap the Ram Modules around if you can and let me know if anything changes

I have not replaced any hardware lately, and I doubt it's a hardware issue. But what does concern me is:
In the reliability monitor it states:
Problem:
Windows failed to start because of missing system files.
Description
Windows was unable to determine the problem. Error code: 0xa

PC SPECS:
i5 3570K stock clock
8GB Corsair Vengeance LP 1600MHz RAM
Asus P8Z77-V PRO
EVGA GTX 670 FTW
Corsair HX650W

Temperatures are safe.

Sometimes hardware just starts to fail without changes. Do not discount it.
