Don't worry about the dump - it's just terminology that the computer is dumping it's memory to a file (that can be analyzed by a technician).
If the Blue Screen (also called the BSOD - Blue Screen of Death) flashes by too quickly for you to read - try this: Go to Start...Control Panel...System...Advanced tab...Startup and Recovery Settings button. Then uncheck the box that says "Automatically restart". The next time you get a BSOD the computer will stop there so you can copy the info down.
You can also use the instructions at this link to help find the error: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/40108/how-to-use-event-viewer/
BSOD's are generally the result of hardware problems. And, it's been my experience that the majority of these problems are due to bad/corrupt drivers.
So, you'll need to get all the numbers and descriptions of the error message for us to have a look at. You're looking for (on the BSOD) a long string of numbers and letters like this: 0x0000007b. It may be preceded by the word STOP.
Also, the symbolic name should be present. You'll recognize it by the underline marks between words (ex: INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE). Finally, there may also be a file name listed (such as win32k.sys).
