This was probably caused by the following module: atikmdag.sys (0xFFFFF80585876401)
Bugcheck code: 0xD1 (0xFFFF8D8294D6DD0C, 0x2, 0x0, 0xFFFFF80585876401)

Bug check description: This indicates that a kernel-mode driver attempted to access pageable memory at a process IRQL that was too high.
This bug check belongs to the crash dump test that you have performed with WhoCrashed or other software. It means that a crash dump file was properly written out.
A third party driver was identified as the probable root cause of this system error. It is suggested you look for an update for the following driver: atikmdag.sys (ATI Radeon Kernel Mode Driver, Advanced Micro Devices, Inc.).
Google query: atikmdag.sys Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

if you get any more
  1. Open Windows File Explore
  2. Navigate to C:\Windows\Minidump
  3. Copy the mini-dump files out onto your Desktop
  4. Do not use Winzip, use the built in facility in Windows
  5. Select those files on your Desktop, right click them and choose 'Send to' - Compressed (zipped) folder
  6. Upload the zip file to the Cloud (OneDrive, DropBox . . . etc.)
  7. Then post a link here to the zip file, so we can take a look for you . . .

One of the errors is caused by McAfee anti virus, try removing it and see if that stops some of them. It is 2 years old now, Generally helps to keep AV up to date.
three mention GPU drivers
Not sure about the 5th error. But with 2 known problems, it could be related to one of them.

Do you think reinstalling windows will help me?
Sometimes it helps, sometimes it does not. As of this point, I can't tell you what the issue is since you had crashes in 2 different drivers. It could be driver issues, or it could be hardware.
  • If it's hardware, then a reinstall obviously won't help.
  • If it's a driver issue, it depends. If the same drivers are reinstalled on the new setup then you'll have the same issue. If different drivers are installed, either newer or older ones, then the issue might go away.
Therefore I cannot answer if a reinstall will help or not. It might, or it might not.

I don't see the top error very often and if you hadn't already run memtest I would have suggested it. All the bsod are memory related but really that isn't saying a lot, all BSOD happen in memory but often you can tell what PC is doing, these are all memory operations. Only one even looked outside of ram/cpu

there might be a new bios for laptop, go here and run automatic update - https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/au/en/products/laptops-and-netbooks/300-series/330s-15ikb/downloads/automatic-driver-update

only last one showed me what you were doing at time, Apex Legends. that one happened after CPU checked in ram and the reaction it got caused the bsod.
you might want a new USB soon

2008 is getting too old. I assume this is a USB key
might not need 2nd one either

Vanguard AKA Valorant anti cheat can cause BSOD as well.
I seen this cause errors too
