Blue screen but don't think BSOD

I have a HP desktop computer, approximately 4 yrs. old. A few days ago a neighbor boy tried to play a game that we've had for about as long as we've had the computer and the game was very slow loading and then froze. I had to turn off the pc and turn it back on. When it came back on the only thing I saw was a blue screen with HP Intel and a few things like f9=Diagnostics. It will not go any further. The keyboard, of course, won't work so that I can do anything. I was told by one company that it wasn't booting up and told by another that it was the BSOD. I don't think that is the case, by all the screen images I've seen online with what it is supposed to look like. This happened once before after trying to play the same game. I turned off the power and turned it back on the next day and it was ok. Not this last time though. Advice please anyone.
