Try f8 at the logo screen then disable automatic restart on system failure from the menu to find out what the error is

there are two possibilities i can think of, one, a virus, two, a bad driver file. what you can do, is run it in safe mode, if it goes to the log in screen, you could log in, and when a dialogue box appears to run in safe mode, click yes. then, go to the start menu, then locate my computer, right click on my computer, and click on manage. A window will pop up that says computer management on the top. In the middle, click on system tools, then device manager, and it will show a list of all of the devices that are installed. Lots of times, your display driver is updated and causes your computer to be unstable, there fore, giving you the bluescreen error, which causes your computer to constantly restart. (make sure all recently installed devices are unplugged before doing this. new devices may also cause this error). look for any devices with an exclamation point, right click, and uninstall them, then restart the computer to see if it solves your problem. if not, then it might be a virus that activates with internet acces, if so, run your computer in safe mode, and run a virus scan and hope that it finds the virus. If that doesn't work, then what i recommend is try to back up your work in a flash drive or disk and running the backup disc that comes with your computer. to run that, sometimes your computer comes with a disc, run that disc and follow the instructions. if not, then sometimes it comes preinstalled, and have to press f10 on the first boot screen. if none of those options are available, then call the manufacturer and ask for the restore disc for your computer model. Good luck

If you have the option of going to a command prompt (on the choose how to start "text" screen), do it, and type at the C:> fdisk /mbr then press the ENTER key. This may fix things. Also, try removing the battery when the computer is off, wait about a minute, then replace it and start computer. This actually helps sometimes.

I would try to repair windows. Insert a disk w/ Windows OS on it and you should see a prompt to press enter to boot from CD, follow the on screen instructions to repair or reinstall windows. If the repair does not work, try reinstall. One of the options will reinstall w/o affecting your personal files & programs. Just read each sdreen carefully as you proceed.
I have had some success with this. In one case though it was a failed hard drive causing similar symtoms.

Turn on the computer and begin hitting the "F8" key when you see the BIOS screen.
This will take you to the Safe Mode menu.
Use the arrow keys to highlight "Safe Mode," then hit "Enter" on your keyboard.
This will boot your computer in Safe Mode, a minimalist manner of operating Windows that runs only essential Windows files.
If using Windows XP in Safe Mode, click the "Start" button and then click "Run." In the box that pops up, type "msconfig" and hit "Enter."
If using Windows Vista or Windows 7, click the Windows logo in the bottom left corner of the screen, type "msconfig" in the search field and then hit "Enter."
This will open the System Configuration Utility.
In the System Configuration Utility box, click the "Services" tab, check the box that reads, "Hide All Microsoft Services," click "Disable All" and then click "Apply."
In the System Configuration Utility box, click the "Startup" tab, click "Disable All" and then click "Apply." Next, click the "Close" box.
A box will pop up that prompts you to restart your computer.
Select "Restart" and let the computer restart itself, allowing it to boot to Windows normally.
If the computer still stalls when trying to boot to Windows, restart the computer and boot to Safe Mode again.
Run your antivirus program in Safe Mode, deleting any files that are flagged as viruses, spyware or malware. Restart the computer and boot to Windows normally
hope this helps
