Did you try running in safe mode ?If bsod appears even in safe mode, its due to hardware.

From all that info, it says that the problem occurs from a hardware. Download memtest86+ and burn the image file to a CD. Boot from the CD and check each of your RAM sticks ( 4, DDR2 2gb sticks seperately).

i.e, remove all your ram apart from the first slot. That way you would have only one slot with 2 gb RAM. Check the RAM for errors using the memtest. If no fault is found remove it and insert the next RAM stick. Check for errors and continue until all the RAM sticks are properly tested for errors.

Well if you don't have the bsod in safemode, that means you are not having the bsod due to hardware. Have tried doing what I told you, using memtest86+ ?

Also, download this.
http://www.fiberdownload.com/Transfer/BlueScreenView/19...

The program is clean ,and it lets you show what might have caused the BSOD.
Open the program, choose the 'minidump' folder in 'windows' in C drive. Then it shows you a list of the bsods that happened at what time, what caused it etc.

It should look like this
