Fallout 3 On windows XP Blue screen?

I got fallout 3 and I install it using the easy install option. once I'm playing I play for about 5 min then the screen goes black and I have to force reboot my computer. when it comes back up it says it has recovered from a blue screen error. I'm not sure what the problem is. I have played oblivion on this computer with no problem.

my specs are:

Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 3.20GHz 3.19GHz

2.00GB RAM

32-bit OS

ATI Radeon 1650XT

any advice as to what is going on would be nice. also it doesn't crash at the same point. it seems to be a set amount of time.
