It's a typical problem, not so much the blue screen but the fact that you don't have a backup.

Reboot & hold F8. If you get to the boot menu, choose last known good config or safe mode. If it boots backup your files. If that doesn't work, remove the drive, mount it in a USB enclosure, connect it to another PC & copy your files.

Then put the drive back in the PC, boot it & hold F10. If there is a recovery partition, follow the instructions.
