It sounds like its your video or audio card drivers. It could be anything interfacing through the DX hole. Run dxdiag in run to see if there is anything wrong.

Also, turn off automatic reboot after the blue screen so you can actually jot down what it say. That could help us...
It would proabaly say IRQL not less or equal......but thats speculation...

disable the "automatic restart" option in system properties and next time when you get that blue screen , u get an address like 0x..... note down that code and paste here, then it would be easier to tell what exactly is the problem.
