Default System Recover/ Restart/ BSoD Issues

Hello all!! I've tried searching everywhere for the last few days about specific problems I've been having, and I'm hoping someone can help me out.
1. I've encountered the Blue Screen of Death a couple times when running games on my computer, and it's only been happening recently.
2. Thinking I could just system restore, I tried it and it ends up rebooting the computer about 80% through, resulting in an incompletion.
3. I tried restarting my computer to go into safe mode, and the restart did the same thing. Black screen, movable mouse, about 5 minutes in; reboot.
4. Tried system restore(using multiple restore points) and restart in safe mode, with the same results.
5. I've also noticed that when I hit the login screen, the screen does a two-three second all-black flash once before hitting the login.
6. When first booting, it says "cannot find grldr, press enter to boot to previous mbr. I repaired my mbr to see if it would fix it, to no avail.

I'm running Windows XP Pro SP3, with no Recovery Disc or i386 files.
If anyone could help me, I'd gladly appreciate it!!

What is the error code and message the BSOD displays when your PC crashes?
