Some of these things I have no clue what they do.

this is the list:
Standard CMOS setup - Date, time, anti viruse, floppy disk
BOIS features setup - ? I donno what this does
Chip feature setup - ? I donno what this does
Power management setup - ? I donno what this does
PNP/PCI configuration - ? I donno what this does
Load fail-safe defaults - ? I donno what this does
Load optimized defaults - ? I donno what this does
Integrated peripherals - ? I donno what this does
Hardware monitor & Misc setup - voltage setting and CPU temp.

Can you please post the blue screen error message (including all the numbers).
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.

There's no need to mess around in the BIOS at this point, and doing so can make troubleshooting the existing problem more difficult.
The stuff below are the different sections of your BIOS and you can read more about them here: http://www.techarp.com/show.aspx?fileID=18

Standard CMOS setup - Date, time, anti viruse, floppy disk
BOIS features setup - ? I donno what this does
Chip feature setup - ? I donno what this does
Power management setup - ? I donno what this does
PNP/PCI configuration - ? I donno what this does
Load fail-safe defaults - ? I donno what this does
Load optimized defaults - ? I donno what this does
Integrated peripherals - ? I donno what this does
Hardware monitor & Misc setup - voltage setting and CPU tem


For most purposes, the Load fail-safe defaults and Load optimized defaults is the most useful. This will reset your BIOS to either the optimized level that the manufacturer recommends for performance, or to the fail-safe level that doesn't have any adjustments for performance.
