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.

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.

When was the last time you cleaned it out?
The moderation staff and system on this website are both absolutely terrible.
