Re: Blue Screen Of Death
That would indicate that the hard drive is no good and either has a bad sector or needs to be replaced. Also before going out and buying yourself a new drive run the CHKDSK on the recovery console of the os disk. If that does not work trying reformatting.

The Blue Screen of Death (also known as a stop error, BSOD, bluescreen, or Blue Screen of Doom) is an error screen displayed by some operating systems, most notably Microsoft Windows, after encountering a critical system error which can cause the system to shut down, to prevent damage.
Bluescreens on NT-based Windows systems can be caused by poorly written device drivers or malfunctioning hardware. In the Win9x era, incompatible DLLs or bugs in the kernel of the operating system could also cause bluescreens.
Bluescreens can also be caused by physical faults such as faulty memory,
power supply issues, overheating of components, or hardware running
beyond its specification limits. Bluescreens have been present in all
Windows-based operating systems since Windows 3.1; earlier, OS/2 and MS-DOS suffered the Black Screen of Death, and early builds of Windows Vista displayed the Red Screen of Death after a boot loader error.
