    Try a different HDD or IDE cable.

    Try swapping your memory with a friends memory that you know works. I have had this problem with many customers computer and 50% of the time it was a faulty memory module. It could also be numerous other things, but I would first try exchanging memory. I have had lots of problems like the one you stated especially with DDR 266, and more so with higher, but still it can happen with pc133. Good luck.

    I would try a re-install Hammer. I've had XP installed on my box for over a year and have yet to have a BSOD.

    DirX, it sounds to me like an overheating problem or a bad connection somewhere. try taking all but the basic components out and running it... then let us know what happens.
