    This is simpler to do than it is to write..........

    You will as Zeno says need to run a repair installation of Windows.

    When you finish that you should go to; "control Panel" > "System" > (brings up "system properties tab) > "Advanced" (tab) > then in lowest panel ( startup and recovery) click on "settings (button) under "system failure" UNCHECK (box) "automatically restart". That should prevent this from happening in the future.

    With that unchecked, you should at least be able to get the error info off the BSOD. (Obviously for the next time). Here's hoping there isn't a next time.
