BSOD on home theater pc, crashed when "idle"

Hi all, I have a home theater pc that is crashing when I am not actively using it (though who knows what is going on in the background...). Attached is my sf tool output. Any help is much appreciated! Thanks!

(Note: I posted this on the sister vista forum, but it wasn't receiving any responses for a while, so I asked the mods to close my thread there as I was planning on posting here).

It may not be but neither Amazon nor MS will take any responsibility for it not being genuine so I've given up with them both. I...
