update your audio drivers and see if that helps. It is possible that you are having a hardware issue.

to turn off the autoreboot right click on my computer and go to properties. click on the advanced tab. select Start up and Recover Settings. deselect "auto restart" under System Failure (mid page).

In order to catch these BSOD's you can use Control Panel - System - Advanced and click on the Settings button in the Startup and Recovery (bottom) section. In the Startup and Recovery window click on the checkbox for "Automatically restart" to clear it then click on Apply and OK as needed to exit.

That will keep the BSOD on screen but you may have to manually power off and restart the computer.

Good luck
