    What does your error logs say?    start-run-"eventvwr".  System Logs

    Most bluescreens occur over driver errors.  Add anything new (raid driver, new hard drive, new NIC, etc...)?

    After trying the above, try swapping out the memory with known good memory.

    Accepted Solution

    Run a complete CHKDSK of your drives too. Check the event log for bad sectors on HDD.

    Also, post the first line (or few) from the bluescreen, which would help in diagnosing the probable cause, or at least head us in the right direction!
