Lady Hussar's laptop has blue screened about 3 times in the last month. All of a sudden windows will go, replaced by the Blue Screen, and then after about 10 seconds reboots the thing. Last time I managed to read the first paragraph before it went – something about Windows shutting down to protect itself.

Any ideas?

There is not enough information to make any kind of diagnoses.

Your problem is not unusual and there are several suggestions on line

Read ( real fast ) the line that has error 0x:00xxxxx in it , that will point to a hardware or software problem. Be especially vigilant on a IRQ error. Generally an error that ends in D or C will point to a hardware failure, but without more information, I cannot help much.

Need more specific information. Could be a broken Windows install, could be a hardware failure.

If you are a little tech-savvy, I'd download a live linux distribution, boot up from a USB stick (you don't have to install anything).

If it's a hardware problem, you'll get crashes and malfunctions in the live environment as well.
If not, it may be time to reinstall Windows.
