This is whats known as a stop error (Blue screen of death). Can you read off the numbers that its giving (0x00000024). If it turns on we know IT probably not the RAM try tapping the F8 key and starting in "Safe Mode" if you can log on to your computer in SM then we know its probably a piece of software or a driver something like that. Now a system restore should be in order. In Win XP and up it should prompt you for a system restore just select the last date you knew it worked. Good luck
P.S if this doesn't work then you may need professional help or post back some more info.
