The blue screen is known as a BSOD (Blue Screen Of Death). The BSOD can be hardware or software related. For example, if say your RAM or HDD was damaged where the device works but has intermittent failures, you would see experience a BSOD. If it is software related as in the case that you install a driver that isnt playing nice, you could see the same result. However, in the case of a software problem, booting to the Last Known Configuration, or even Safe Mode and running a System Restore to a last known good point should resolve the issue.
If its HW related, the only way to resolve it is to figure out what failed, then swap it out. If you had extra parts, it makes it easier. Otherwise, you may need someone to check the BSOD and decifer the error message to help you determine what actually is failing.
