Hello johnnygonefishing,

Probably not due to there is a possibility that the issue that caused your blue screen is still there. So we will have to wait for your system to blue screen again to correctly troubleshoot the system. Blue screen error messages are one of the most misunderstood error messages out there in regards to windows. According to Microsoft, only 5-20% of these errors are actually caused by the OS. Only 10% are hardware related. The other 70% are the result of faulty drivers or software incompatibility. Based on those numbers, less than 15% of blue screen errors can be permanently resolved with an OS reinstall.
