With so little information its hard to give an answer.

Did this start before or after you upgraded.

Is your system 32 or 64 bit?

Did you do an upgrade or clean install?

If an upgrade what version of Vista and what version of Win 7

The most common cause of blue screen errors is a bad driver or drivers. Since you have recently upgraded from Vista to Windows 7 this is the most likely your problem. Changing to the 64 bit version will probably not stop the blue screens. If you can get the system running then go to Device Manager and right click each item in turn and select Update Driver. Let Windows search the internet for updates. Failing that run a utility such as DriverMax Click Here to check which of your drivers needs updating. The free version will only allow 2 downloads per day but if you make a note of those listed you can go to the manufacturer's website and download the drivers there.

Most likely drivers, but a quick check for peace of mind, also check temperatures.

'Speedfan' or 'Core temp' will give an indication of overheating. click here Blow the vents out anyway when you have chance ...summer is here. :-)

when you have recovered from a bluescreen crash run the program it will show the files in the folder C:\minidump - select the latest and it will show all the information related to the latest crash.
