Windows 7: BSOD on Windows 7 startup - not HDD?

BSOD on Windows 7 startup - not HDD?

Any help really appreciated.

I have an Acer 3400 desktop.

Tonight, its started BSOD.

When I start it - the Windows 7 splash screen appears, after a few seconds, every time, the BSOD appears. The error comes up very quickly (far, far too quick for to read).

I've tried booting from a different HDD (I'd did a Windows clone a while back to a (hybrid) SSD, so tried booting from the original HDD) - but still get the same problem - so I'm assuming not a Windows corruption or HDD problem?

Any idea what it could be - memory? Graphics card?
