    Why don't you want to take it to get it fixed? Sounds like it could be a hardware problem, if you are getting a BSOD. If you open the case you might invalidate the warranty. Then you will have to pay to get it fixed.

    What does the BSOD message say?

    ok the reason i dont want to take it in is because i have stuff that shouldnt be on there if u no wat i mean. and wats bsod?all i get when i turn it on is the microsoft boot screen then a blue welcome screen but instead of it sayin welcome it says microsft windows xp.

    Blue Screen Of Death - it's the blue screen you see when Windows crashes. I thought that was what you meant.

    have you tried hitting control+alt+delete when you are in the blue Microsoft XP screen? It might bring up a login dialog.
