    Have you overclocked? Do you have more than one stick of ram? (if so remove one, rotate them, etc.) Are the vitals new? Motherboard, CPU, RAM, HD?

    Blue screen could be due to bad ram, an improperly clocked processor, a bad HD, etc etc.

    Well, what does the blue screen say?

    It usually gives you a stop error message and some numbers and letters after it. Plug those into the Microsoft Knowledge Base and you should be able to get some ideas.
