Hi. On that blue screen, do you see a message at the bottom left that says something along the lines of: STOP: 0x000000 or something similar?

Yes it says:

STOP 0X00000050 (0x8768ADA2, 0X00000001, 0x8886DD2A, 0x00000000)
What can this be?

The Stop 0x50 message indicates that requested data was not in memory.. Defective memory (including main memory, L2 RAM cache, video RAM) or incompatible software (including remote control and antivirus software) might cause Stop 0x50 messages.

Possible Resolutions:

* If you added new hardware recently, remove and replace the hardware to determine if it is causing or contributing to the problem.
* Stop 0x50 messages can also occur after installing faulty drivers or system services. Using updated drivers and software is especially important for network interface cards, video adapters, backup programs, multimedia applications, antivirus scanners, and CD mastering tools. If an updated driver is not available, attempt to use a driver from a similar device in the same family. For example, if printing to a Model 1100C printer causes Stop 0x50 errors, using a printer driver meant for a Model 1100A or Model 1000 might temporarily resolve the problem.

Grab this:
http://www.memtest.org/#downiso and download the "Pre-Compiled package for Floppy (DOS - Win)" one. Extract all, run install.bat with a floppy disk and restart the computer to boot off the floppy.
