First "blue screen" is a windows error condition, meaning some parts (bootloader, initial kernel, etc.) of the windows OS has loaded. Try booting with a Linux Live CD, if successful will help trouble shoot between hardware or OS. Hardware is a distinct possibility, but not confirmed.

Ordering memory may incur unnecessary expense, especially if the memory isn't the problem.

Step 1. Take half the memory out and try it. If it works, then you likely have some bad memory (the half you took out)
Step 2, if it still blue screens in step 1, then swap the memory with that removed in step 1.

If it still blue screen's, it ain't the memory, ain't you glad you didn't buy more

That error is called BSOD (Blue screen of death) and may cause of hardware failure, You need to check all your hardware connections are they properly inserted into right jacks. In a Microsoft support program they told about this that this is most probably a hardware error.

Or not. Depends on the error code whether hardware is a likely culprit.

Most probably? I've seen many more blue screens due to bad software than I have seen due to bad hardware. As a matter of fact, the link gwrober provided even say's it's due to a bad file.
