    What exact error message does it give on the blue screen? Or does it just reboot?

    So, summing up... It was working fine, you're computing right along.... whilst computing, you got the dreaded BSOD. You then reboot, but drive starts clicking and machine won't boot. Does this sound right?

    If so... Check/re-seat cables and HDD power connector and try again.

    Still no love? HDD is probably dead, but try known good HDD in machine to make sure.

Sometimes i find that your registry and drivers can get screwed up. If you have a copy of windows, you might want to try reformatting your hdd and reinstall windows. Other times its caused by lack of virtual memory, if your running vista try popping a flash drive and use readyboost. The only thing about readyboost is that you need windows to boot first.
