Not sure about the blue, but it sounds like the black screen problem others are having all over then net. Here was my two cents on it so far....
There is a very good chance if you are using a external mouse instead of the touch pad, that is what is causing it. Problem is, I am still looking into why and do not know of a fix yet.
I have the very same laptop and mine worked just fine with a external mouse up until I formated it. Now just like the many other owners, my mouse freezes and and then seconds later the screen goes black. It doesn't however when the external mouse in not pluged in.
I would have to assume this is due to something not being installed right during the windows installation. As I said, mine worked fine until the format. Until I find out what is causing this error to happen, my best advise is not to use a mouse, just use the touch pad.
It's kind of a pain lol, I had gotten so use to the mouse. I kept reaching for it even after I unplugged it. I had to take it off my desk so I would use the touch pad lol.
