according to what you describe, it seems your system won't even POST... with your blue screen warning, my bet will be problem with your memory....

try to get a good ram from a friend (make sure it meets the requirement of your motherboard, see motherboard specification for detail, like manual or vendor website)

hope it helps.

No, if the memory is bad, it dosn't say anything. It acts just like what you described. Mabey you have a faulty PSU?

try to borrow a working PSU from a friend with enough wattage to sustain your system.... that is the easiest way to check for faulty PSU

As he said the power supply is most likely the cause. If it can't serve enough power to the other componants then it won't start. Go buy a new power supply and see if that fixes it. If you don't know how to change that I strongly recommend taking it to someone that does.
