Windows 7: BSOD 5-10 minutes after booting up

BSOD 5-10 minutes after booting up

Hi, First post here, I getting a stop error 5-10 minutes after I boot up windows, I am unsure of the cause. I think it has to do with my BIOS, it's Phoenix e-Award and they want me to pay some 3rd party company just so I can have a working computer.

Also, My PC won't stay on long enough for me to download any windows updates and I was wondering if there is anyway to update windows to the most current version without actually running windows, maybe from the boot disk or something? Thanks in advance.
