MAC Blue Screen

A friend of mine is getting the MAC Blue Screen every time
she starts her system.  It began when she was updating to
a new version of her OS.

Is there an easy fix ?
I do not have more info about her system, version, etc.

It might be the "Startup Drive".  This information will help get you going.

Repairing the Startup Drive

Your startup drive may be suffering from one or more issues, many of which you can fix using Apple's Disk Utility. You can also use a third-party app, such as Drive Genius, TechTool Pro, or DiskWarrior, to repair drive damage. Because you can't start your Mac up successfully, you'll have to boot from another drive that has a system on it, or from a DVD install disk. If you're using OS X Lion or later, you can boot from the recovery disk; if you're not sure how to do that, you'll find instructions in the guide at the link below.
