Hopefully you will copy down the error code that is given (unless one is not given) and get an idea why you got the BSOD.
Then you can try to boot into safe mode and repair the problem or use a boot disc/recovery console if you can not boot into safe mode.
That is the basic, simple form.

Often, if you're lucky, the problem will resolve itself with a simple reboot and you may never have to worry about it again.
Didnt know there were different type of BSOD but what the most common one(if there is?

There are many, many different BSODs and many different causes for each one.

This fourm is a good place to learn about all kinds of problems just by reading the various posts that are made. BSODs are just one of a seemingly infinite number of possible problems you can have with XP and now Vista.

Google is also a good place to look for answers to questions you may have. For instance, when you get a BSOD with a 0X0000000A error code, a Google search for 0X0000000A will give you many pages of hits. Reading some of them will give you an idea of how impossible it is to answer your question in a meaningful way. Likewise, doing a search on this forum will give you many hits worth reading.

Hopefully you can recover from a BSOD.
Then you can look in event viewer to see when and what.
How to View Event Details
To view the details of an event, follow these steps: 1. Click Start, and then click Control Panel. Click Performance and Maintenance, then click Administrative Tools, and then double-click Computer Management. Or, open the MMC containing the Event Viewer snap-in.
2. In the console tree, expand Event Viewer, and then click the log that contains the event that you want to view.
3. In the details pane, double-click the event that you want to view.

The Event Properties dialog box containing header information and a description of the event is displayed.

To copy the details of the event, click the Copy button, then open a new document in the program in which you want to paste the event (for example, Microsoft Word), and then click Paste on the Edit menu.

To view the description of the previous or next event, click the UP ARROW or DOWN ARROW.

Thank you.
Most of the time a BSOD is an issue with conflicting hardware or software. You should be able to boot into safe mode (you show enough know how that I do not have to explain this) and correct the conflict.
