This is more than likely a hardware problem. I'm moving you to the XP forum. If this is Vista, let me know.
We need to know the entire error message of the BSOD. Also, if you can remember what you were doing when it happens and basic computer stats.
Make and Model of computer, how much memory and so on

why won't my laptop work?

Having grandkids is God's way of giving you a 2nd chance because you were too busy working your butt off the 1st time around
Do not send me PMs with problems that should be posted in the forums. Keep it in the forums, so everyone benefits

One additional thing you may need to do (if not already done): Disable Auto Reboot On System Crash - http://www.theeldergeek.com/auto_reboot_on_system_crash.htm

This will improve the odds of getting an error message in Event Viewer when things go wrong...and that message can be used to attempt to pinpoint the problem.
