It's happened 3 times tonight, happened about 5 minutes ago when I was listening to music in iTunes.

System is an AMD Sempron 2600, 512mb ram, 80GB IDE HDD, no new hardware or software has been added ,and its only started happening today...

Pix of the BSOD: Warning, its big!

Hmm..Microsoft says it could be overheating of the processor (unlikely but possible). Could also be dodgy power (according to Microsoft, which I think it is)

Who makes the computer? What type of PSU is in it if you know?

Have you checked the memory? Usually faulty memory sticks can cause this problem. I suggest you get an app called MemTest86 and run it on your machine. If it fails pull out one of the memory sticks (if you got several) and run it again. Switch around the sticks until you find the one that tosses out errors.

MemTest86

Get the bootable ISO and burn it to a CD.

If it's not the memory then check CPU temps, voltages (BIOS should report these). If you run any overclocking then set everything to default.[/url]

i got a BSOD yesterday, but for a different reason to yours, i just put a XP disc into the machine and ran the recovery console, then in the console i wrote chkdsk /r

It fixed the faulty files but a lot of my stuff went missing

I could really be cruel about that statement. :-#

Serious, check the PSU. The less you payed for it, the worse it's gonna be in the long run. Or you can do what I always do, try to reinstall Windows. That usually fixes any problems I'm having.
