Check BIOS and make sure the boot order is correct, and you aren't accidentally in IDE mode.

Run a hard drive test in DOS...HIRENS CD etc, it sounds like a failing hard drive...

During the blue screen at the very bottom does it tell you a driver name like "drivername.sys"?
or maybe some components in your computer could be loose.
