This screen is called the Blue screen of Death and is not a good error to have. This could be happening for a number of different reasons. Overheating, your laptop is getting too hot, it may need a service, to clean and remove dust that is preventing air to pass over the heat sinks,CPU cooler etc... As airflow is limited, your PC therefore is not cooled effectively. Another reason is that your hard drive and/or RAM modules are either not connected sufficiently or are faulty, or part thereof. Maybe your processor needs to be reinstalled. Or when your laptop is in use it is not allowed enough airflow, ideally it should be used in such a way that no surface obstructs it's air intake vents.
But it could come down to the actual information on the hard drive, ie virus infection or corruption of boot data. To test this one would boot up the laptop without a hard drive. If it POSTs and stays on a screen, boot disk missing, or some-thing to that effect then the hardware is fine or relatively fine. this would in turn mean that the hard drive has failed, or the information within is corrupted.

All the best, thumbs up!!!

I have a samsung n130 laptop/notebook. my screen has turned blue. it all starts correctly and is fully functioning except it's turned blue! help!

Graphics chip problem at the worst, but more likely to be the screen going faulty (by turning blue, I assume you mean a blue colour cast). I'd try making sure the VGA cable is secure in the back of the screen and to the motherboard. these mini netbooks are easy to take apart to check those parts.

Before doing so, see if it works ok on an external monitor, if it does, that eliminates the graphics card problem
