Question about Microsoft Computers & Internet

I cant initiate my windows vista because...

When i start my computer, then i log in my session, after 1 or 2 minutes he breaks (shows a blue screen saying that he detected an error or problem that may harm software or hardware, so he reboots to prevent that). Other times he just stay stucked and you cant do nothing except holding the button to shut it down -.-
I've removed all the hardware that could be bugging the computer and even reinstalled windows with the factory's programs only. Ive checked for virus in safe mode (he doesnt break in this mode) and ive found nothing.
Please, help me to find the cause and solution for this problem.

Thank you.

Hi, To start, at the lower left of the blue screen there is an error code (looks like 0x0000001E). Search the code in google and you will, maybe, have a beter idea on what is going on. If your computer freezes, it's most likely due to a memory or hard drive issue. There is software out there to test both. Prime95 can test your memory if your windows can stay awake that long or you can boot your computer with a memtest cd. For hard drives you can download test software from seagate or western digital website, in downloads section. It's also possible (unlikely to freeze your computer though) that a software/printer driver is messing with your system. good hunting!
