First of all you have to identify the blue screen error code. Blue screen errors normally occurs due to infected windows files. You need to scan PC to remove malwares, junk and virus.

Freezes during start up


My first plan of attack would check
Second the event log in the BIOS, looking for a heat event. Make sure your fans are spinning, while you are in there get a can of compressed air and blow out any and all dust. Sometime it becomes necessary to remove the processor and put a little Artic 5 between the cpu and the heat sync.I would check out the video card, the easiest thing to try first is to remove and update the video drivers. I still lean towards the heat event Idea...
Hope this give you a headstart in the correct direction. Good luck,
PS, if you are the one shutting it down and rebooting, look to the Video Card,
