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.
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/tutorial61.html
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.

How do I reboot my pc


You know where the on/off switch is. Look below it on the main case there should be a reboot button. This will shut down the computer hard but should go to the screen that asks if you want to start the computer normally. Just hit enter on your key board. If it starts normally without errors then you are fine. If you have errors or goes Blue Screen of Death then repeat as I've recommended but don't select start normally. Select to start from an earlier saved time where there are no errors. Go to a time where your computer started normally that you remember. Getting to this point could be much more complicated. Incidentally, how did you blog here if you are having problems?

Reset bios


Installing a fresh operating system is a good option, and there might be a feature in the BIOS to restore the system to factory defaults. Information on how to do this:

Windows XP: Dell PC Restore

Using PC Restore:

1. Turn on the computer.

During the boot process, a blue bar with www.dell.com appears at the top
of the screen.

2. Immediately upon seeing the blue bar, press <Ctrl><F11>.
If you do not press <Ctrl><F11> 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.

3. Click Restore and click Confirm.
The restore process takes approximately 6 to 10 minutes to complete.

4. When prompted, click Finish to reboot the computer.

NOTE: Do not manually shut down the computer. Click Finish and let the computer
completely reboot.

5. When prompted, click Yes.

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.

6. Click Next.
The System Restore screen appears and the computer restarts.

7. After the computer restarts, click OK.

HP had blue screen and said it would shut down. Problem is that it does turn off, so that it can be re-booted. Have tried to shut off PC, but continues to come on and not start.


Hold the power button in for 10 to 15 seconds for hard shut down if that doesn't work unplug power for about 5 minutes then plug power back in and see what happens

My computer won't reboot after trying to reboot it is stuck in a blue screen how do I get it to get out of the blue screen


You need to launch the Last know good configuration to get this fixed.

Follow the steps below,

Step 1: Shut down your PC completely.
Step 2: Trun on the Power button.
Step 3: As soon as you turn it on start hitting the F8 key on your keyboard until you get to a black screen called "Windows Advanced option". (If you don't get to that that screen but you end up reaching the blue screen than that means you have delayed in hitting the F8 key. start again from step 1.)
Step 4: As soon as you reach "Windows Advanced option" use your down arrow keys to choose an option called "Last know good configuration".
Step 5: Select that and HIT ENTER.
Step 6: you PC will boot to the windows. If this fails then you need to perform repair install using the Operating system CD.

Ok the problem here is your computer is booting for the cd drive or floppy dish drive. Try restart the computer and bring up the setup utility (either esc or f2, it should come up when computer is switched on) select booting device, and change it from boot from CD.

Blue screen keeps coming up


The blue screen you are referring to usual appears when there is a software/hardware conflict.

If you have recently added any hardware to your computer , try removing it and rebooting the computer..if it was software you have recently installed , try booting the computer in "Safe Mode" ( tap the F8 key when the computer is first booting) and uninstall the program.......

If that does not work , we would need to do some more troubleshooting. First we would need the exact error code from the blue screen. That will help us narrow down exactly where the issue is coming from. In the picture below notice the red box's , the code in those box's is the code we need from yours.
