go to system properties, advanced tab, then click the settings button for startup and recovery. uncheck the 'automatically reboot' box....that will stop it from rebooting after the BSoD, you can then read the error.

Probably a driver conflict with some of the software you are using, but also can be caused by bad stick of ram or bad sectors on your HDD.
Here's what you need to do
1. Check your lpatop's temperatures using SIW or Everest Ultimate
2. Check your ram by using memtest
3. Check your HDD by using HD Tune Pro (trial)

Also tell us what software you are installing after windows reload.

Post back here with results
