Windows Xp bluescreen on startup. Any help? Please?

I hope someone here will be kind enough to help me.

Last night I ran windows update and downloaded 13 updates, then installed them. Instead of restarting right after they finished installing, I decided to check to see if there had been a firmware update for my DVD burner since I was going to be burning a few dvds soon. There was, so I downloaded and installed it as well. When I rebooted, the computer went to the windows start screen, then bluescreened.

It did the same thing on 2 consecutive reboots, so I tried to do a system restore in safe mode. I restored it to a point earlier last night, then to the day before, then to last Sunday. It still did the same thing every time I tried to boot it out of safe mode.

This morning it won't even stay stable in Safe Mode, and did the bluescreen twice.

Here's (part of) the message I'm getting:
"Windows has shut down to prevent further damage to your computer. Blah, blah, something about memory, blah blah, something about drivers, blahblahblah." (I can't remember exactly what it said, I'll write it all down when I get home.)

Then there are two lines that say:
***STOP: 0x0000007E (0xC0000005, 0xF791aaD9, 0xF7c3472c, 0xF7c3442c)

*** Cdr4_xp.sys - Address F791AAD9 base at F7919000, DateStamp 3e230329

Here's my computer's specs:
Windows XP home
P4 2.4g
384mb RAM
60gb HDD, (with about 4-5gig free)
Memorex 2.4x dvd+rw drive
Lite-on 12x dvd-rom drive
120g WD external USB HDD

I'd appreciate any help anyone can give. I need my computer back this weekend. Thanks in advance.
