You are in the operating system when you see a blue screen, the bios is before the computer boots int the operating sys, it is like the heart, of a computre, you don't need an operating system fo booting into bios, thats like a new harddrive that would have nothon it yet, the bios must be acccesed prior to booting into windows

Tips for a great answer:
Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to
back on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you
MODE. Take the Safe Mode With Networking option (this will give you
internet connectivity) and let it boot up. Safe Mode will look different
you, the screen will be darker and the icons bigger, this is normal.
Uninstall AVG then reboot and see if you are ok. Download and install
Microsoft Security Essentials as your antivirus program.
If you still get the blue screen, Try running the Check Disk Utility.
To run the check disk utility you will need a repair disc or
a operating system disc. Put the disc in the cd drive and boot from
it. You want to get to the Dos Command Prompt (Black screen with white
letters) and type the following command: chkdsk /r
Check disk will run well over an hour or two and you will notice the percentages going from high to low, this is normal. Let it run to completion. Then reboot machine.
If check disk fails to solve your problem you might have to reinstall windows. Try doing a Repair Install that way you don't loose your data, documents, music, pictures, videos or programs.
In windows xp you get to the dos command prompt by selecting R for repair when the options appear.
In Vista and Windows 7 you want to get to the recovery console and look down at the bottom of the window for the Dos Command.
