Windows xp media center buzzing sound..error event code 7 and code 51?

I was watching tv when the tower made a buzzing sound and then the screen went blue and the computer locked up.  I had to hit the power buttons to turn it off and it took several tries to bring it back up.  It is now as slow as a turtle and media center is flaking out with picture, sound, recording etc. I called Dell and then had me check the fan and hard drive with a quick check and that was ok.  They said they couldn't do much more for me and told me it was a software issue.  Bought a Maxtor to back-up system and Dell said to restore the computer to factory settings, at which I didn't want to do yet.  My hubby checked the computer management event log and two codes popped out at the time this happened.  Event ID 7 and Event ID 51.  Any ideas?
