Is it a solid blue screen with no writing on it, or is there some message on the screen?

Blue screens are often called 'Blue Screens of Death' (or BSOD) by users, and 'Stop Messages' by Microsoft. We need to know the exact message you see when you get the blue screen. We especially are looking for a set of letters and numbers about half way down the page that take this format:

0x0000008e

This is usually followed by a set of 4 simliar numbers in parenthasis. For now we just need the first set of letter and numbers (before the numbers in the parenthasis).

This will help you diagnose why you are getting the stop messages.

Have you made any changes to this computer lately, such as adding hardware, or adding any software?

have you tried running a virus scan / spyware scan yet? Sometimes this MAY be the problem.

hey, it doesn't hurt to try.

You could try a system restore to restore your settings back to the way they were before. More info on this can be found HERE.

Choose a date just prior to when the problem started and see if that cures your ills.

Well, to carry that out a little further, I would suggest you uninstall the recently installed programs, on a time with a reboot inbetween. Check and see if the problem goes away during each reboot.

You made a change to the system somewhere along the way, and probably by installing something that made this change. Therefore it is logical that you must undo what has been done.

That is my best guess.

I don't know for sure if this will help you in the future, but when you download a program hit the 'save' button and not the 'run' button when prompted. This will save the program to whereever you indicate. Then to install the program navigate to the place where you saved it and double click on it. That way you will have a copy of the program and can burn the program to a disk and save it as a backup in case you need to uninstall and reinstall, or in the case of having your hard drive crash.

Just part of having good backups and a disaster plan.

Might I suggest attempting to boot to safe mode
(Repeatedly tap "F8" as your computer is turning on)

If you can boot to safe mode, than that means that either a peice of hardware or software is causing your boot problem.

If you can boot to safe mode:

Disable start up items and 3rd party services with MSCONFIG.exe
(Start - Run - msconfig)

Also try disabling any non-essential hardware from the device manager.
Such as: Video Adapter / Disk Drives (CD/DVD) / Mo-Bo cards (Audio / Networking / Modem / etc)
(Control Panel / System / Hardware / Device manager.
