A common problem that occurs with systems that have failing CMOS batteries is impatience.
Rather than set the date and time correctly, a use may just accept the defaults and go on using Windows.
Then, when programs are installed, they see the old date and assume it's correct.
And a lot of programs have a timeout feature - so resetting the date to the correct value will actually break some programs.
But this is most likely NOT the reason for the blue screen event. I would suggest that you try a bootable hard drive diagnostic to test the hard drive outside of Windows. There's links to the more common one's here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/28744/hard-drive-installation-and-diagnostic-tools/
If you can't find the one for your hard drive (this happens quite often with Toshiba's) use the Hitachi Drive Fitness Test.
If the hard drive tests good, then I'd suggest using the Toshiba restore disks to restore the computer and start over fresh. While you'll have to do some updating, it's preferable to trying to figure out each little "nit" in the system. Depending on the Service Pack level, I'd suggest updating your device drivers from the Toshiba website BEFORE updating Windows.
