    i'd start with a memory dump. configure the system to store a memory dump and analyse it next time the system is up and running.
    good luck with that

    other than that i'd try simple troubleshooting.
    1. start in safe mode. does the same thing happen?
    2. if it doesn't happen in safe mode, try starting in vga mode. if that works, it's likely the graphics card is causing the problem. try updating or rolling back the drivers and see what happens.

    my guess is you either have a driver conflict or some faulty hardware in your machine. again, the memory dump will probably point to the cause.
