Right click my computer and click properties. Click the advanced tab. Click Startup and Recovery. Take the tick out of the box for Automatically restart and click ok. Next time you get the memory dump it won't restart the computer automatically. On that memory dump screen, it will tell you the cause of the memory dump. It can be an error (ie not less than or equal: which can point to memory) or it will list a file, which can indicate a driver issue. If you've already ran memtest and it's passing, there are any number of issues that can cause BSOD's. Write down the error your getting the next time it BSOD's so we can narrow down the possibilities.
You can also check event viewer in Control Panel -> Administrator Tools -> Event Viewer. Look through the logs and see if there's a listing for an event that corresponds with the time that the computer crashed. You often get quite a few errors and warnings during startup so it may not be first in the list. So take note of the time when you BSOD to make it easier to locate the log. If it's a BSOD and if there is a log, it will most likely be in the critical section.
Also what are your temps like? Are you overclocking your computer? When does it happen most often? Is it pretty typical that it's every 20 minutes or is it more random?
