Try booting in the runlevel 2 and see if you are able to reach the login prompt.

When grub loads and the countdown starts press "a" two times and append "2" after the "quiet" word.

Or......after it boots up, enter ctrl-alt-F1 (or F2)

A typical issue on new installs is that X-windows won't start because something is not right in the configuration file. I've never seen a blue screen, however.

When your first boot up, it there a menu (from GRUB) which includes "safe mode", "rescue mode", or something? Also, is there an option to boot into Windows and does that work.

AND---did you remove the installation CD when you re-booted?
