    Tap the Function 8 key while the computer starts up and before Windows loads then when you see the Advanced Boot Menu, select "Disable automatic restart on system failure". That will make the blue screen Stop Error message remain long enough to be noted down and posted back here. Posters need the alpha-numeric 0x0000?? and ANY_WORDS_JOINED_UP with underscores to be able to assist further.
