Windows 7: BSOD followed by "Your computer was unable to restart" error

06 Sep 2011   #1

Windows 7 64bit
BSOD followed by "Your computer was unable to restart" error

Last week I was going about my usual business on Photoshop when my computer screen flickers out and reappears with the BSOD. It restarts and shows me an error screen that says "Your computer was unable to restart" and "Attempting repairs", found here: Software Bloopers - Microsoft Windows 7 Pro - YouTube

After this screen shows up a few times over the course of an hour without resolution, I reinstall Windows 7 and reformat my computer. I had all my files backed up so it wasn't a problem. I didn't have any errors for a week when, just a little while ago, the same process happened where I BSOD'd again and got the same "Your computer was unable to restart" error. This time, however, the computer rebooted and took me back to the desktop. I BSOD'd one more time and it fixed itself again, but I'd like to get to the root of the problem. Attached is the error report and I'm running 64-bit Windows 7 on a 2 year old Alienware. Thanks so much for any help!
