if there is a blue screen, it'll be just a flash of blue between the restarts if you don't enable a setting that makes the computer pause so you can read what is on the screen. boot into safe mode by tapping F8 repeatedly as the computer boots and try to change the following setting:

control panel, system, advanced tab, startup and recovery settings, under system failure, uncheck 'automatically restart'

restart normally and if the problem persists, you will find that you can read the blue screen now, if there is one, which there will certainly be if it's a driver problem as you suspect it is. there is an error code associated with the error and a phrase following the error code. post back with the information here and someone will be able to tell you how to fix it.
