Use System Restore
You can use System Restore from System Recovery Options menu to resolve blue screen errors in the system. System Restore cannot create new restore points in this mode, so you can't undo a restore operation. However, you can run System Restore again and choose a different restore point, if one exists. To run System Restore using the preinstalled recovery options, you need to remove all discs from the system and then restart the system.
Fix memory issues
The blue screen error in Windows 7 can occur due to the issues in the memory. Windows 7 includes tools that can help identify and fix certain hardware and memory related errors. You can see the error checking option in the Tools menu. If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation and then click the 'Check Now' option. You can activate 'Automatic Fix' to solve issues automatically. If insufficient memory is the reason behind blue screen errors, then you need to upgrade system memory.
A system image is an exact image of the partition on your hard disk that contains Windows. It also contains all the data on that partition on the date you created the image, including Windows, the necessary programs, and user data such as documents, pictures and music. You need to have created a system image beforehand to use this option. You can also use this option to fix blue screen errors in Windows 7.
