I had the same and it was because the 'default' memory speed setting in the
bios was too fast.
I selected the correct speed for my memory and haven't had a crash since.

microsoft have a very good memory testing program that you can download and
burn to a cd, then boot and run from the CD.

I set memory speed from 166 to 133 now waiting to see. The computer froze up
on me right before I did this when I was still in windows making my memory
testing CD. Tests showed nothing but I set it anyway so waiting for it to do
it again
