BSOD and Windows update problems

I recently had a new harddrive installed due to the old one failing and have had this new one for a few days now. I have vista 64 installed and everything was running fine till this morning while browsing the web i randomly got a BSOD and my pc rebooted.

I went to google the problem after rebooting but it happened again shortly after.

There is another weird thing though, if i try installing windows updates (about 80 to install it seems) instead of getting a BSOD my pc just reboots after a couple minutes. Actually i am getting BSOD when i try that now.

Also on the button to switch off it has the symbol to shutdown and install updates but while installing them the screen goes all lightish blue and crashes forcing me to switch off manually. (The colour looks as if it had zoomed in on the vista background colour you see when choosing a user logon).

I have no idea whats going on. If i try to use my pc normally i get a BSOD but if i try to update it just craps out on me. I did an avg scan and a malwarebytes scan in safemode but turned up nothing and i am currently running it in safemode with networking.

Any help will be greatly appreciated. :)

(edit) I should probably add that i quickly noticed on the BSOD at the bottom it had: *** Stop: 0x0000000A

It also seems i am mainly getting the BSOD now when i try to install windows updates.
