bsods at startup

i keep getting bsod at startup for windows and and also when safe mode starts. Attachment 101946

also. for the last few weeks i have noticed this screen before windows 7 starts that says something like:

starting pxe-rom

media cable unplugged

exiting pxe-rom

its a lot longer than that and also mentions something about intel, could be my processor.
