If you boot into an installation disc, you won't need to load windows off the hard drive, so it shouldn't blue screen

How much RAM does the laptop have? If less than 1GB I suggest you hunt around for an XP disc as vista will be very very slow on it and windows 7 won't do it many favors (but will be bearable)

Do you have a Vista installation DVD?

If not look on first boot screen for the key to press for Factory Recovery, or post back the make/model and we will give you the steps to try full Factory Recovery from boot.
