Thank you for any advice you might be able to provide.

CPU or GPU (more likely IMHO) overheating?
It looks like processor trouble, so I was hoping for some advice.
Can you try with a cooling pad or similar to see if there is a difference (like doubling the time before the shutdown is forced/happens)

What have you tried so far? (which browser, hardware acceleration...)?

I've tried Firefox and Chrome Portable; Hardware Acceleration is enabled in Flash. As a player I mostly use MPC - Home Cinema, but no hardware acceleration (DXVA or similar). No overclocking done.
The last two dumps had different values for arg2, so I did !errrec for both. The results are in the two text files attached here.
Thank you, I will try that and also SpeedFan for CPU/HDD temperatures.
Cheers and thank you.

you have a L1 Cache issue which be caused by OC or overheating. What is the temperature when you get the crash?
The CPU is AMD Turion x2 2.2GHz RM-74 64-bit. It has not been overclocked, and the temperature is around 52-55 Celsius. I recently had it cleaned and the guys at the repair shop rewired the fan to be always on (the laptop has an EFI BIOS and there is such an option, but they didn't use that). Can this be the culprit? If so, they have a piece of my mind coming their way
Cheers and thanks

I ran Prime95 on the most stressful settings; the CPU got to 94 degrees and it stayed there for a while. Then I plugged in the external cooling and got it down to 88 degrees. It stayed like that for almost an hour. Below is a screenshot in comparison with CPUID Hardware Monitor.

Meanwhile, there was another shutdown and the same error, but a different arg2 value. I'm also attaching the !errrec log.

Anyway, I reduced Maximum processor state to 90% (as proposed in the first link) and I'll see what happens. Meanwhile, I'm open to any other suggestion anyone might have.
Cheers and thanks

Revisiting: solution was close to post #14; reducing CPU to 80% made the shutdowns go away.
