    if u can run post your Memory Dump:

    If your computer is bootable, you can set Windows NT to create a memory
    dump file when a Blue Screen of Death occurs. To do so, open the System
    Properties dialog box from Control Panel and go to the Startup/Shutdown
    tab. Keep in mind that
    the partition where you store the memory dump file must have at least
    enough free space to store your page file, plus your physical RAM
    space, plus 1 MB. For example, if your machine has 128 MB of RAM, the
    partition must have enough free space for the page file, plus an extra
    129 MB.

    then i can diagnose the problem

I did some research on your error
and if its the 0x0000007f u say it is then this is why is BSOD-ing

- Your computer has hardware or software problems (hardware failure is the most common cause).

- You try to over clock the speed of your computer's processor (for example, you set a 150 MhZ
processor to run at 187 MhZ).

The above STOP error means a trap occurred in kernel mode and the trap is either one the kernel is not allowed to have or is always fatal. The most common causes of a STOP 0x7F are:

- Low-level hardware corruption, such as corrupt memory (RAM)

- Mismatched memory modules

- A malfunctioning motherboard

Solutions:

- If either software or hardware can cause a particular trap, a debug is required to determine which is the cause. If you suspect a hardware problem, try the following hardware troubleshooting steps:

1. Test the RAM in the computer by running the diagnostic software that is provided by the computer manufacturer. Replace any RAM that is reported as bad. Also, make sure that all the RAM in the computer is the same speed.

2. Try removing or swapping out controllers, cards, or other peripherals.

3. Try a different motherboard on the computer.

- If you are over clocking the speed of your processor, set it back to the speed at which it is designed to run.

- Check with the hardware vendor for any updated hardware drivers or BIOS updates, or both.

My computer says stop: 0x00000024 (0x00190203,0x86f6e330,0xc0000102,0x00000000) `


The most important Blue Screen of Death troubleshooting step you can take is to ask yourself what you just did.:
1) Did you just install a new program or a piece of hardware, update a driver, install an update, etc.? If so, there's a very good chance that the change you made caused the BSOD:Startup using Last Known Good Configuration to undo recent registry and driver changes.Use System Restore to undo recent system changes.Roll Back device driver to version prior to your driver update.
2) Scan your computer for viruses. Some viruses can cause a Blue Screen of Death, especially ones that infect the master boot record (MBR) or boot sector.
3) Update drivers for your hardware. Most Blue Screens of Death are hardware or driver related so updated drivers could fix the cause of the STOP error.
4) Return hardware settings to default in Device Manager. Unless you have a specific reason to do so, the system resources that an individual piece of hardware is configured to use in Device Manager should be set to default.
Non-default hardware settings have been known to cause a Blue Screen of Death.
5) Return BIOS settings to their default levels. An overclocked or misconfigured BIOS can cause all sorts of random issues, including BSODs.
6) Use Reginout to fix BSOD stop errors

Monitor goes into sleep mode at random


Check your power options in your control panel - default is usually 20 minutes to put monitor to sleep - you can adjust the time there. The monitor itself does not usually have this as a function so I would start there first.

BSOD- STOP error message


most bios updates are found on the compaq website, they need to usually uncompress to a 3.5 floppy or they are auto-installing programs u get from the website, your issue however sounds to me more like a corrupted version of windows, did you try a fresh installation with the recovery cds or master disks?
