Do you mean that you have nothing specific to the Dell laptop? That would be a better choice at this point. But, I wonder if your electing the restore procedure was warranted. It may have been that the fix was as simple as a routine cleaning of the heat dispersal system. If that's the case, even a successful restore won't resolve your issue for long. What you should probably consider is calling Dell and buying a set of recovery disks. In the meantime, do a cleaning of the fan using compressed air in the outlet port. If you have another PC handy, you might also download some diagnostics programs to evaluate the condition of your RAM and hard drive. These could also be suspect and cause the blue screens as noted.
