    It'll probably help if you turn off the default "restart on crash" setting.
    This won't fix the crashes that are probably happening, but may give you
    some clues as to why they are happening - the first step in actually fixing
    it.

    Right-click on My Computer and choose Properties. Click on the Advanced
    tab, and then on the Settings button under "Startup and Recovery". Close to
    the middle of the page that appears, there's a section for "System Failure".
    Make sure the checkbox for "automatically restart" is *cleared*. Click
    Apply then OK back to the desktop.

    Now, when the system crashes, it won't just restart. You will instead get
    some kind of error message. Keep a pen and paper handy to keep track of
    what the messages say.

    Note that on blue-screens (you'll recognise them) the relevant info is the
    error number and a name like "KERNEL_INPAGE_ERROR" or
    "IRQ_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL". You don't need to copy out the complete stack
    dump.

    Yes there is a stop error:

    IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

    STOP: 0000000A (OXF7C90354,OXOOOOOOFF, OX00000001, OX84E2E41)
