When you have that screen with boot options, you have to use the keyboard. The mouse won't work till you get into the OS. From your use of "click up or down" I assumed you meant with the mouse. If you use the keyboard it should let you move with the arrow keys to make your selection.

Also, what issues exactly have you been having?

Another thing that can help us is if you tell us the exact error message of those Blue Screens. They will include data such as:


File ntfs.swe is corrupt or missing... blah blah blah...

STOP: 000000000x00000007E (0000c000s023000x00s00c000350x00200300c0g)

Get all that information and we will be able to help you out in finding the culprit.
