Windows 8 BSOD with error message "Your PC ran into a problem and needs to restart. We're just collecting some error info, and then we'll restart for you."

Original Title: Windows 8 Infinite startup loop with blue screen of death

Today I was playing GTA IV normally, when suddenly my PC suddenly started to make a very loud and annoying noise, and the screen showed a blue background and some white streaks across the screen. I thought this was a bug, so I force shutdown the computer. When I started back up, the computer booted up as normal, then instead of a logon screen, a blue screen of death appears. It flashes an error code for a very short time, so fast that is almost unreadable. It then shuts down, and does the same thing. Now I am stuck in an infinite loop. I have searched online for a fix, But none of them actually had the exact same problem.

I have a 1 week and 5 day old HP Pavilion 500-004a, so it is still under warranty.

What should I do to fix this problem?

EDIT: By using a high speed camera, I've figured out the entire message.

:(

Your PC ran into a problem and needs to restart. We're just

collecting some error info, and then we'll restart for you.

If you'd like to know more, you can search online later for this error: REGISTRY

EDIT 2: I've uploaded a video of this problem on YouTube

Unfortunately neither of the solutions worked. Method one would not work because I am not even able to reach the logon screen (shown in the video). Method two would not work because I do not have a Windows 8 Install disc. Windows 8 came pre-installed on the PC. Oh, and my name is Ryan.
