I have been going through the exact same problem with my HP Pavilion a6030n system.
I have two questions: Did you have your Microsoft update set to auto update and install ? And do you remember if the Blue screen message contained the line "DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL"?
I have been researching this issue for weeks trying to find a fix for my computer, The most recent talk from the "experts" suggest that this is Nvidia graphics or networking driver conflicts or compatability issues , perhaps even the graphics controller etc. What the current thinking is what may be occuring is that Microsoft auto updates replaces HP drivers on the sytem that are not compatible. It is suggested that the drivers or controllers from the updates be uninstalled and prevented from future auto updating of drivers etc. Then reinstall original drivers from the HP site which are germane to your system then if needed update only from HP.
I have no idea if this is the right answer for you and would love feedback on the issue from the wiser tech types here. I am providing information only not advice please understand I am not an expert!
