Question about Computers & Internet
So, the problem is due to a hardware/software configuration or failure. I know, very broad. But, one of the purposes of the Blue Screen (of death) is to communicate the failure (code). To really troubleshoot this, you need to make a note of the content of the blue screen text, specifically the file/component of the failure and the error code.
Can you elaborate on your computer? What operating system is it running?
First, try to start into Safe Mode using the F8 method. For details on how to do that, try checking out the following, which is one of many tutorials.
If you get into safe mode, the failure is occuring in accessory systems/drivers not loaded in safe mode (networking, video, etc).
If your system doesn't come up then, still try to get into the F8 menu, and if there is an option to 'disable automatic restart on system failure' and then try to start.
Then, get any info you can and do searches on google on the file/component and error code. Bound to be alot of info, so have patience.
If you need more help, please post an update and any info you were able to get.

During the boot process, a blue bar with www.dell.com appears at the top of the screen.
If you do not press in time, let the computer finish starting, and then restart the computer again.
NOTICE: If you do not want to proceed with PC Restore, click Reboot in the following step.
The restore process takes approximately 6-10 minutes to complete.
The computer restarts. Because the computer is
restored to its original operating state, the screens that appear, such
as the End User License Agreement, are the same ones that appeared the
first time the computer was turned on.
