I'd start by pulling anything extra out of your computer .. modems, add-on cards, etc.. and I've seen some video cards cause this. Make your system as basic as you can and see if it works.. if it does.. start adding things back in, 1 by 1 until it crashes again.

You might post the exact specs on your system.. MB modem and type, video card, and anything else in your system.
