"OS - Windows XP SP2
Anti Virus - None"

Why are you still running SP2 & why aren't you running an anti-virus program?

"computer hangs and a blue screen appears"

We need to know the STOP code & error message to be able to help. Otherwise, anything we tell you is just a guess.

"I tried to clear bios memory, but all is in vain"

Of course it was in vain, clearing the BIOS will not fix a Windows problem. Did you enter the BIOS afterwards & manually reconfigure the settings, not just load defaults?

"I has to visit my friend for another computer to format the hard disk and reinstall it to my own computer"

Windows should be installed & setup in the computer it's intended to be run on. Does your friend have an identical computer as yours? Exact same motherboard & hardware? If not, you should NOT be formatting/installing on his computer & then putting the HDD back into yours.

U have no antivirus software installed and u are surprised why BSOD after every two or three months?
A damaged OS can cause BSOD so get AV software ASAP

or

Download and install Service Pack 3
Add more RAM (another stick of 1GB or more).

You know the real meaning of peace only if you have been through the war.

I would also thing about your user name as well. Using your Email address is not a very good idea at all as it is likely to get "farmed" by spammers and fill your inbox will all kinds of junk, including untold malware..

If this Email address had been in the body of your post I would have deleted it as a favour to you.

If you get a blue screen again, as well as the info already requested check to see if there is a file name shown. If so, let us know that too.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Possible hardware issues. I would download the memtest+ iso, and make a bootable cd from the iso image. If you can select an alternate boot with an F key select to boot to cd and let, if you do it correctly it loads automatically into memtest and will begin testing the ram module. Let it run for atleast 1 full pass, the more passes the better. If it appears in tact. Download Seatools from seagate, since your computer still boots, you can download the Seatools for Windows, install it and run it. Do a basic generic test of the hard drive, if it passes, do the long generic. If this passes, you have done 2 important test that help determine the issue. Tough to say, you have many issues, point to software issues as well, most of which have been addressed above. links to downloads below.

NOTE: The link is for Windows 7 however, the steps are similar.
