To stop a blue screen auto reboot so you can read the error message from the screen:
Go to Start -> Control Panel -> System
Go to Advanced
Under the Startup and Recovery section, click Settings...
Under System Failure, un-check "Automatically restart"
Now you can put that EXACT error message into Google.

If your turning the wireless on and off and then it blue screens out, this could be one of several problems.

- Try re-installing the drivers to the wireless device on your laptop. Corrupted drivers can do this to a computer/laptop.

- The actual wireless hardware might have failed. If this is the case, there are USB wireless receivers you can purchase.

- Try booting up in Safe Mode with networking and see what happens there. If you turn the wireless on and it the laptop stays on, it means its a software issue.

Let me know how it goes!
