Blue screen after a few minutes

  bukkaz 16:09 15 Sep 2008

After loading up alright after a few minutes on the internet the blue screen appear. Normally it says computer has shut down to prevent damage etc and then say IRQL less not equal, although a cople of tines it has said Bad Pool Header.
Had great probles rebooting and in the end had to reinstall Windows XP off the recovery disc provided by Medion. Now it has happened again and it mentions check newly installed software and hardware but there isn't any as the only thing on the C drive is Windows and those programmes which will only load to C drive.

Has anyone any ideas please?
