Windows BSOD whe I open my inventory in Minecraft

I get a blue screen of death a few seconds after I open my minecraft inventory every time I try it.

I'm running: -Windows 7
-2048mb RAM
-160GB hard drive with over half unused



I'm not sure what info to give since i'm not sure what the problem is (i'm a newbie) so if you need specific info then please ask.
thanks in advance for any help =)

Be sure to lower Minecrafts video settings to the lowest level, and gradually increase the video level until the blue screens appear once more
