got a couple things for you to do

In safe mode:

Right click MY COMPUTER, choose PROPERTIES, choose ADVANCED, choose the SETTINGS button in the Startup And RECOVERY section, and uncheck AUTOMATICALLY RESTART

Now reboot. This will result in the BSOD error...report the STOP ERROR and any parameters.

start > run, type

Look under systems and applications for items with red Xs that happened at the SAME time as your problem...list them here.

also check your system temps in bios

and try this http://www.memtest86.com/ test one stick of ram at a time
