Sounds to me like a bad memory chip. Do you have memtest86 on a bootable CD? I would try to run with just one chip of memory installed at a time and see which one it blue screens on and if it works fine with another. It actually could be bad capacitors on the video card and/or mother board (check for bulging/rounded/leaking). The fan on the video card could be stuck or burnt out. Your hard drive could have a bad sector so download the drive certification test iso image from the hard drive manufacturer and make a bootable CD. That will tell you if the drive is good and can fix bad sectors and some minor problems.
