    Sounds to me like you have a bumb Mobo dude. I have had the same thing, turned out to be the mobo.

    So no more BSOD since you installed Windows 7?

    Are you overclocked at all? I'd try running Memtest overnight to rule out RAM too.

    What error comes up on your BSOD?

    Not Overclocked...before I reinstalled Windows I could see the BSOD, but now it just blue screens and switches off.

    It was stable for a while, now it's being a B again...Motherboard?

    Have you done a memtest? How many sticks of ram do you have installed? If you have more than one then test with on stick removed and then swap them around, the one that BSOD's is the culprit. Start there before you start replacing your mobo. Also how long after you start up does the PC slue screen?

    It seems pretty random. I'll try the RAM test tomorrow. I've got four 1gb RAM sticks (they were all outta 2gb, so might be a good time to upgrade anyway). Thanks for the help guys, will let you know.
