What error code are you receiving on the Blue Screen?

Also, please check the following:

- Is there an SD card or any other removable device plugged into the laptop?

- When you reloaded Windows did you use the Recovery partition or an external USB / DVD?

- What kind of test did you run on the Hard Drive?

When booting, hit F8 like going to Safe Mode. Select Disable automatic restart on system failure....

Also, in that menu, have you tried Last Known good Configuration?

It sounds like you need the SATA textmode drivers. Do you have an option in the BIOS to run the SATA controller in "compatibility" mode instead of "AHCI"?
