computer blue screen after power outage

So it was storming out and the computer might have been plugged in and on. The power went out 3 times. First 2 times it went out for like a milli second and came back on. The last time it went out for 15 minutes. 3 hours later i get on and 5 minutes after i turn the computer on, it goes to a blue screen for 10 seconds, then restarts. I have a picture of what the blue screen says but idk how to post it. Everytime i turn the computer on it does the same thing. We think something got fried but whats wrong?

Blue screen on unknown machine/OS.
