Go to control panel->administrative tools->computer management->disk management and take a screenprint of that so we can see.

Blue screen of death is for the system to tell you an error code before shutting down next time right down the error code .

The symptoms make it seem like your trying to format a drive with windows on and running but through the windows manager. Thats the only thing I can think of until you tell me the error code
