I guess it all depends on the BSOD error message.
A full disk check (CHKDSK /R) will not upset things, it can only help.
What is the Error Message (the first set of 0x00000000 codes would be useful and any STOP message or IRQL_NOT_LESS_THAN etc).

Several possibilities - any other message with the BSOD?

The last link takes you to a Microsoft Search on the BSOD error - hopefully you may have more info to hand that might allow you to narrow down the problem.

Once resolved - if you don't have a UPS, I would suggest you seriously consider one, and also, if your RAID controller can handle it and your budgets cope, insert a Hot Spare disk so that if/when the next disk fails, the server will get on with using the Hot Spare immediately and rebuild your array before you even realise a disk has failed.

Applying computer settings can be down to a service not starting properly.  I had a similar problem with the Exchange Information Store.
I use software called NetSupport Manager, which is remote control software and this allowed to to connect remotely and see what service was hanging, so a boot into safe mode and disabling the information store got me up and running, then I had to work out why the information store was causing a problem.
Try safe mode and disabling the information store.  Change it under services from automatic to disabled and reboot.
