I would pause the screen, read BSOD system error details, reboot in Safe Mode and start reading system log files to see whether I would be able to make a correction to solve the issue. In the meanwhile, I would pay close attention to any clicking from the hard drive (if it happens to be a SATA drive, solid state drives do not click), make sure all my internal cables are all well set, and continue after determining the potential cause of the BSOD.
