Get blue screen errors semi frequently

blue screen errors continue - help
I have been getting these errors somewhat frequently. Most of the time the information on the blue screen is generic and doesn't offer much in the way of troubleshooting. However I ran some programs that put stress on hardware so you can find out weak areas and got the blue screen twice with different information each time and have noted that it keeps relating back to video drivers or hardware.

I recently upgraded my video card to GEForce8400 GS so that I could have dual monitors. I have a P4 running windows 7 ultimate. This computer is a hand built one by a tekkie and although I read in this forum that P4's have 32 bit - every system analysis says I have 64 says width 64bit. So now I am really confused. I have 32 bit operating system installed. My video drivers are up to date everything is fine with my video hardware and software.....I'm thinking bios but really need some help on how to troubleshoot this. This is an older computer obviously. 3 gig ram 3 ghz processor I have a full printout sheet of my system if that is helpful. Thanks in advance for anything you can help with.

I should also mention that I went for almost 3 days with no bluescreen and then it started again. The problem is really really random which I feel is going to make this that much harder to figure out.

You can also run the memory diagnostic just to make sure this isn't a bad ram module or poorly seated one. In search box start typing memory test and it will show up, select it, it will test the computer on restart. Just one way to rule out things it could be cause bsods are caused by many things.

As for the operating system, you can have a 64 bit capable cpu, but only a 32 bit operating system. If your right click my computer and click properties...brings up a screen to tell you if you have the 64 or 32 bit version of windows installed.
