The problem is that Wenchy doesn't have the OS to reinstall.

BSoD on a laptop normally means game over. If it's old, it's not worth repairing but bear in mind any new PC will be Vista. Which is sh1te.

Yep I tried safe mode, and it just hits the blue screen again and then restarts over and over in a never ending cycle. I have decided that it isn't my problem.

If it's a school laptop then it's their problem.
