The options is just ERD & rcovery console, I don't have the ERD for this installation, and I don't know how to repair from recovery console.

Is this a OEM version of the OS? If so youre screwed.. and you have to reinstall.

Edit the boot.ini from the recovery console and put the /sos and /basevga switches in to see if that helps.  I doubt the basevgaa will help as safe mode also falls over but the /sos might tell you if a service is causing the blue screen. Then you can disable the service from recovery console if its that.

Any new hardware been added recently? Is the PC Overclocked?

What if you boot up and press the F8 key.  Then try 'Last Known Good Configuration'.

I used /sos but the blue screen still too fast. All the options in F8 not working (always restarting). How about if I reinstall, will all the programs wiped out??
