if you installed anything new around the time when this started try uninstalling it, or you might have a virus that infects core files that will either need cleaned or replaced

If this only happened once I would not be too concerned.
How long was the machine running between restarts?
what apps were running?
Was there ANY hardware plugged in recently?
If it was just once and windows rebooted successfully I would not be to concerned.
check your event log, vista has some pretty good details for bsod's

how do i check the event log?
i happens pretty often, ussually everythime that i restart it, then i get the blue screen, restart it again and comes back to normal.
does the message about IRQL tells anything?
why it says it is dumping the memory?

please provide me more details
i have not installed anything recently, it happens mostly everytime i restart or turn on the laptop.

thanks

or just post the minidump - in windows\minidumps for more info
note that it can be  a ram problem -  which you can test with memtest86+
