production support for Intel Pentium 4 and Intel Celeron D processors based on the

Try hitting F8 as soon as the BIOS POST is done and Windows begins to load.
From the boot menu, choose the option to disable automatice restart on
system failure. This will either get you past the blue screen or stick
there long enough for you to write down the precise error message. Post
back with the details.
