    Welcome to TSG---

    Try choosing Disable Automatic Restart from that Windows Options menu. That flash of blue should then become a blue screen stop error which hopefully gives more information about the specific error.

    Post the blue screen error---word for word please.

    Also---any new hardware or software installed recently? Unplug any external devices and try the boot again.
