PC crashes frequently

Specs: Windows 7 Professional Service Pack 1, i5 / DDR3 4GB
Not so recently my computer started giving me problems.
My computer is quite new, I just bought around March, 2011. It's a custom-made computer.

Here are the specifications:

Motherboard - Intel Desktop Boards DH67BL Media Series
Processor - Intel CORE i5
Hard drive - Western Digital 500GB
RAM - 2 × Kingston DIMM 2GB DDR3 (4GB)
OS - Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit

Now the problem is quite hard to explain. Sometimes, the computer crashes and
when I restart the computer, it says that no bootable devices is found, and if you let it a few minutes and start the computer again, it starts fine. Sometimes, the computer freezes and the blue screen appears. Sometimes, the computer shows some error messages and windows explorer closes and the mouse and keyboard will stop responding.

It's really very annoying. I'm really frustrated because I paid a lot of my money for this pc. I really need your help. How can I fix my pc or at least stop it from freezing.

I had run some tests and here are the dump files -http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?2pgk72yfuzpk6w4

"it says that no bootable devices is found, and if you let it a few minutes and start the computer again, it starts fine."

Those symptoms would suggest a failing hard-drive. I'd advise you back-up whatever possible ASAP.

"Sometimes, the computer freezes and the blue screen appears. Sometimes, the computer shows some error messages and windows explorer closes and the mouse and keyboard will stop responding."

Also either hard-drive or Motherboard problems. Possibly power-supply related, but the "no-boot device" practically singles out the hard-drive being a main source of problems.

Also possible is a memory problem.
Back up first for safety.
Run Memtest86 from bootable CD to confirm any memory errors or none.
Run hard drive utility from Western Digital to test your hard drive for problems.
Repost back voltage readings in your BIOS, all must be within 10% of specified voltages (12Volt must be +- 1.2 volts or between 10.8Volts and 13.2Volts, etc.).
Report back results.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Also suspect a loose or faulty hard drive data cable or maybe power cable.

Get hold of hard drive diagnostics tool from WD and run it from a bootable floppy or CD
