It happens completely at random, sometimes twice within a few minutes! Is there any way to determine what's causing it?

it could also be a thousand different other things. Bad drivers or a bad program. Have you installed anything new? You could get a program called bluescreenview that helped me with my bsod

Cheers I'll try those when I get home.

It's only been happening recently but I'm struggling to think of anything I've installed since the problem started. The laptop is only a year old so hopefully it's not ram

Use a program called whocrashed and it will tell you the most likely thing that is causing the BSOD's on your system.

What error is it displaying when it goes to blue screen. I got a lot of memory management and bad pool header when my ram died.

Did a mem test and isolated one of my ram sticks was completely bad.
