Question about Computers & Internet
Wow, that's a very serious problem, specially the boot disk failure part, seems to be that your Hard Disk Drive is either too old or has been somehow damaged. The blue screen can sometimes tell you what happened, but it's rarely useful, here are some solutions:
1) Get a friend's computer, connect you disk drive as a slave (there are instructions on the disk drive on how to do so) and then back up all your files to your friend's computer. Then change your disk drive to master, get it back to your computer, format it and reinstall your Operative System, and then get all your files back from your friend.
2) Get a second Disk Drive, install your Operative System in it and then backup all your data from your old Disk Drive in it, format your old Disk Drive. Use the new one as your main Disk Drive and the old one as a secondary/slave one (I recommend this option since it seems your Disk Drive might be damaged)
3) Get a new computer and do the same as on step 2 (except buying the new Disk Drive since the new computer should have one, if it already has an Operative System you can also skip that part), this might sound harsh and expensive, but if it's not your Disk Drive the one that's messed up, then it's either *********** Board, C.P.U. (Processor) or your BIOS/CMOS, in which case, there's nothing left to do. Replacing a C.P.U.is as much (if not more) expensive as to buy a new computer, a new Mother Board might not be compatible with what you already have (Disk Drives, RAMS, CD Roms, etc) and the CMOS/BIOS is irreplaceable (Embedded in the Mother Board so you would always have to replace the Mother Board)

You have given little information, but to me it sounds like your hard disk is failing. I would try to get the drive imaged to another one, and replace the drive before you completely lose all your data!
