    Hi Jimboboran, and welcome to TSG.

    I may not be able to solve the problem, but it would help us to help you if you gave us a few more details.

    1) Are we safe to assume the power cord was disconnected while a desktop computer was running?

    2) What operating system is used on the computer? Did the computer come with that version installed or was it an earlier version and upgraded?

    3) Did the blue screen text say that the computer needed to be restarted right away or after Windows completed one or more tasks? If so, did the same or different blue screen message appear after the restart?

    4) Does the blue screen say any specific task could not be found or completed? If so, what did it say? Was any specific error code number given? You can submit a legible photo of the screen as an attachment instead of trying to copy it all down.

    5) What are the brand and exact model number of the computer?
