In order to be able to trouble shoot the bluescreens that you've been getting we'll need the technical information from them. It usually shows as STOP: 0x000000?? with four parameters in parenthesis following it that look identical in form to the first one, being 0x and then 8 numbers & letters also known as hex characters.
If the bluescreen doesn't show up long enough to get any of the detailed information, follow these steps:
Click Start > Control Panel.
Click System and Maintainance.
Click on teh System link.
In the left frame click the Advanced System Settings link.
Hit Settings in the startup & recovery section.
