I just want to find out why I keep getting this Screen of Death every now and then.

The machine runs Windows 7 Prof. I have tried to install Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor when it ran for first time it crashed and then Blue Screen, When I rebooted the system the software could not be installed any more indicating an internal error.

I disabled the Automatic Start when failure happens but is there anyway to  find out what causing the problem?

I have checked the event viewer and find the following event logged

The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck. The bugcheck was: 0x00000124 (0x0000000000000000, 0xfffffa800ab15028, 0x00000000be200000, 0x00000000000b110a). A dump was saved in: C:\Windows\MEMORY.DMP. Report Id: .

Thanks

Go to control panel > system and security > system > Advanced system settings, tab Advanced > next to Startup and Recovery, button Settings...> Write debugging information, change dropdown option to "Small memory dump" > OK. (reboot computer)

Next few times, attach the memory dump from c:\windows\minidump here.

Bugcheck 0x00000124 normally indicates a hardware problem.

The first thing I would check is the Memory.

You can test the memory by running this application.
Memtest86
You can download ImgBurn to burn the ISO to DVD

If Memory problems are found, try re-seating the Memory Module.
Clean the golden edge of each Memory Module with a soft rubber/eraser, remembering not to touch the golden edge of the Memory Module.
