Download the ISO image of PC Doctor from Lenovo's website and burn it onto a CD.

Boot from this CD and run the system check, especially the memory test.

 

See what this comes up with. Smells of faulty RAM imho.

Right-Click "My Computer"

Select "Properties" from the context menu

Select the "Advanced" tab

Push the "Settings" button in the "Startup and Recovery" area

Untick "Automatically restart"

 

It will then keep the blue screen and you can read what's written. Maybe that can give a clue.
