LEGO Star Wars caused BSOD after it crashed

I decided to install LEGO Star Wars on my vista and try to fix the problem with it crashing when I try to start it up. But this time, I got something so unexpected, and something utterly terrifying (Yes, I value my computer so much).

I tried to change the screen resolution on the game to the highest possible (1660xsomething) and the game minimized and the "LEGO Star Wars has stopped working" message came up. Since I couldn't see my cursor, I hit the spacebar to click "Close Program".

After that, the BSOD flashed on and told me I got a "bad header" or something, I can't excactly remember. It was there for like 2 seconds and then the computer restarted itself. It didn't boot, so I flicked off the power switch and turned it back on and now everything is back to normal.

I tried running the program again and this time it just crashed when the menu appeared. Nothing happened after that. This has always happened whenever I tried to start the game.

I also tried going through the Program Compatibility Wizard and ran it in XP Service Pack 2, but for some reason the computer restarted itself again.

EDIT: BSOD report and health check are attatched.

Is Vista . . .
- x86 (32-bit) or x64 ? 32-bit
- the original installed OS on the system? Yes.
- an OEM or full retail version? OEM.
- What is the age of system (hardware)? About 5 years.
- What is the age of OS installation (have you re-installed the OS?) About 5 years too, and no.

    Thank you for everything you've done for me in the past years. I'm sorry that games require much more than you're capable of, but you'll never be forgotten as my first personal computer <3

Right, I looked in C/Windows and found the Minidump folder but it's empty?
