Several times a day I have very recently been getting the famous "BSOD". It flashes (for 2 secs) and the computer restarts.
I can't make out what the error is because its a full screen of writing. The last words I manage to capture was "physical memory dump" with a couple of Hex symbols.

I have done:
  • RAM Memory Scans - all ok
  • HDD Error Checking - all ok
  • HDD Defrag - ok
Those didn't seem to help. Is there anything else I can do?

Really need to get the error code ... sounds like it's either the RAM or graphics card ... even though scans OK it may not be seated properly or dust clogged up so many possibilities w/o looking at the error code ... can't help sorry.

Have you tried to enter Safe Mode and edit the Auto Reboot option?

I can't copy a link, but you should be able to Google it

Find me on Twitter!

If the problem is so bad that you cant get into windows at all to disable auto reboot, and if you can recreate what causes the problem in any way, get your camera/video camera ready and take a photo. Did this with a vista laptop that had a BSOD right after installing.

But of course turning auto reboot off is easier, if its possible.

I've turned auto-reboot off, and ever since then the message hasn't appeared yet. It happens randomly, you can't really "recreate" the situation.
When it appears again I'll post up the details.
