Random freezing, blue screen

I have a Dell Inspiron 1150 laptop with a 2.60 Ghz Celeron and 256 MB of ram. I've had it about a year and a half with no problems until recently. Heres the problem: since about 3 months ago, it just freezes up randomly and I have to manually shut it down. This is a big problem because I use it to DJ, and I've had it freeze up numerous times at a job, twice in the middle of playing a song! I use iTunes to play the songs and no other programs open when it froze. i'm not noticing any patterns, i'll just be scrolling around or have a song playing and it will completely freeze. one thing i noticed is that the laptop gets very hot, not sure if that has anything to do with it. Sometimes a blue screen just appears, most of the time it just freezes without a blue screen, just a frozen mouse pointer and desktop, unresponsive. if it gives me the blue screen, i get the microsoft "send/don't send" message, and I've copied this from those messages:

I notice they all have "Product : 768_1" does that mean anything? I've uninstalled a lot of programs, done all the windows updates, virus scan, spyware scan, defrag, and this is still happening. One more thing, around the same time this started happening, i got a Seagate external harddrive, usb 2.0 that I use occasionally. the laptop has froze while it was attached and when it wasn't attached. not sure if that is relevant.

If i get a blue screen, it always says: IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

Please help if you can, it would be greatly appreciated! I'm hoping I don't have to reformat cause I have so much stuff on the hard drive.

thank you.

Your 1150 is notorious for the fan going bad overheating issues.A good cleaning may be in order or fan replacement.
