Have you checked your Windows Task Scheduler for any shutdown instructions? – user3914 Feb 12 '11 at 5:24
What error is shown on the blue screen? – Sam Feb 12 '11 at 9:02

Check the System event log for a reboot reason.

Look for source (aka Provider) EventLog, id 6009 to identify reboot times (this logs the OS version early in the startup process).

Then check:

  • Source "USER32" event id 1074 for shutdowns initiated normally by a process (and if you have the process tracker running, the reason entered)
  • Source "WER-SystemErrorReporting", id 1001 for BSOD details

Blue screen error means you have some fault in your hardware, try to replace RAMS also if you have any newly installed hardware like Sound Card or LAN Card try to remove it and check again if it works. Also what is the Blue Screen Error Code, like PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA ? OR similar you will get on top , so we can better explain you.
