That said, drivers and hardware are the most likely things to cause a BSOD. An unstable power supply can also do that. (I'm guessing your power supply is a LiteON, given the HP ones I've seen. Those are decent, as long as you don't overclock - not that you can with the locked bios anyway.)

Doesn't Windows have a crash report tool like XP anymore?
XP tells you where the dump files have been saved to, normally in a hidden folder in My Documents. You can pull those out and find enough info to find out if it was a .vxd or .dll that caused it.
As for the power supply, could be struggling. How old is the machine and have you installed any upgrades or USB devices recently. The problem with pre-built manufacturers is that they will give you a PSU that's just barely suitable to power the stock PC and they don't last very long under heavy use. Start adding extras like upgraded graphics cards, extra drives and dozens of USB devices and it starts groaning under the strain.
