try different RAM as blue screen is often caused by problem with RAM. upgrading bios might be also good idea.
ZX-S & C64 are still my favourites ;-)

Also make sure that the ram is at the correct timings and voltages in the BIOS, some ram needs over 2V whereas most motherboards default to 1.8V I believe.
