BSOD can mean anything you need to press f8 when at the windows gui and turn off restart after error. Then write down the error code and tell us BSOD can be anything really normally its ram related if it has just suddenly started occuring. If its a hardware issue then reformatting will not solve it.

RAM can just die..... nothing lives forever and just because it worked a week ago doesnt mean it will work a week later. Once you tell me the error then I will be able to tell you whats wrong rather then an educated guess
