Windows 7: Random BSOD and startup problems

Random BSOD and startup problems


I've been having problems lately with BSOD on my desktop. Usually it boots up fine the first time on a given day, but gives a BSOD within 5 mins in windows. After a BSOD it won't startup, unless I turn it off completely and wait maybe 10 mins before i try again.

I did a format and a fresh install a couple of days ago, to no help at all. Except the first time i used it after the fresh install, it was running fine the whole evening.
