What was happening when you encountered this error?

From doing a little research, it usually implies some type of disk / driver problem.

Brand new HP PC. PC will be idle for a few minutes. Then it will go the the blue screen. Stating a problem has been detected. This has happened at least a dozen times.
It seems to be a problem with Vista users.

You could try also disabling all power management and see if that helps out.

Also, you might want to install the reliability updates mentioned here, as they seem to cover a lot of issues with blue screening:
