Thumbs down blue screen of death! help!

hey everyone. my friend got a dell inspiron 6000 and its a pretty nice laptop and he got the stop screen. i researched all night last night but cant exactly find a solution to fix it. the problem is that he doesnt have the original cds except the drivers cd and his step mom burnt a boot disk but i tried going into the bios and booting up from the cd drive but it still wont work. i currently dont have the comp but my friends bringing it back soon. the message only i can remember is the STOP (OOXOOOOO) or something like that ill post it up when he gets back. but if get this thing fixed i can basically keep it because his mom just ordered another one, so help me out please. any suggestions or anything would be appreciated. im not that good on computers but can understand some stuff. thanks.

what operating system is it running? if you have a personal copy of the OS assuming it is xp you can use that disk to run a repair on the OS.
