Here's the details (Blue Screen UI):

Two primary causes of these blue screen are video drivers and BIOS - Check with System Maker's Site for Display Adapter (Video) and BIOS and then Device Maker's site for latest Video. It can be other drivers so check while there. Turn OFF auto-driver installation as those are older and if Windows Updates suggests a driver just HIDE it. Antivirus is another possibility.

See Generic Driver Update Methods and check running Driver Verifier in the next

Look in the Event Viewer to see if anything is reported about those.

there are other causes.
