Windows 7: Blue Screen after "Starting Windows"

Blue Screen after "Starting Windows"

After "starting windows" with the little windows logo animation the curser shows for a split-second than black for a couple seconds and finally blue screen.

It happened after I accidentally pulled the power plug out of the computer while it was on

Safe mode does not work - same error
fixmbr of fixboot from the repair windows option does not fix it
I can run linux

Blue screen says: ( sorry the numbers were not right, corrected)
STOP: 0x00(dont knowhow many 0s)000F4 (0x00000003, 0x8608c830,0x8608c99c, 0x82e23deo)

Please help, i can provide other info if you need it. Thanks

Bugcheck F4 is usually Hard Drive / SSD related issues.
As I do not have any info to work with, I would suggest:

If you are unable successfully boot into Windows because of the BSOD error, Windows has an option to reload registry information from the last successful boot. To revert to the last successful boot:
1. Reboot the computer.
2. Near the end of the BIOS messages or graphic, but well before anything appears from Windows, press the F8 key. You may only have a few seconds to get the right spot to press F8 before it attempts to go into Windows. If the BIOS complains about a pressed key or asks you to go into BIOS setup, you've pressed F8 too soon (Don't go into BIOS setup).
3. When successful, you should see a black screen with white text "Windows Advanced Options". Use the up or down arrow keys to highlight Last Known Good Configuration and press Enter.

Advanced Boot Options

Then chkdsk /f/r in an elevated command prompt.

Click on the Start > Type in search cmd
Right click cmd at top and Run as Administrator
At the command prompt please type: chkdsk /f/r
(Note: there is a space between chkdsk and /f/r)

Choose Option 2 if you cant boot into windows.

Run SFC to check the integrity of all Windows 7 system files:

Click on the Start > Type in search cmd
Right click cmd at top and Run as Administrator
Type SFC /scannow at the prompt
(Note: there is a space between SFC and /scannow)

Update the firmware on any SSD you have installed from your manufacturer's website.
Check all HDD/SSD cables and ensure they are seated correctly.
Masters/Slaves are set to correct configuration.
Check you have sufficient free space on your Drives.

Your HDD manufacturer's website will usually have a diagnostics utility program that you
could use to download and test to see if the HDD may be dying or not.

Hope this helps

Cheers

I have actually done last known config but how can I do the other options when I can't boot into windows? Can I use the cmd in the repair windows mode? And how about updating my firmware? can I do that with linux or something?

Well if you ran fixmbr of fixboot then you can get to the Command prompt window?
Run the chkdsk and SFC /scannow from there.

Hi,
The firmware update only applies to SSD's (solid state devices).

Does your HDD show in the BIOS?

Have you tried a System Restore? Choose Option 2.

You can try to test your HDD using manufacturer's instructions:

I would suggest to do a repair install if you cant access the command prompt/safe-mode etc
or if you are unable to carry out a system restore.

I can run linux
Do you have linux installed in the Computer? How? In another partition, or in another HDD?

Is it a dual boot setup? What is the bootloader then? MBR or GRUB?

The possible steps to fix this issue depends highly on this information.

I just ran linux from my 4gb flash drive. It used to be dual boot windows 7 and windows 8 preview but I deleted the windows 8 preview partition although it still shows me the option on choose on startup when the partition is deleted but that doesn't have anything to do whith how it happed. That did not cause the problem . I accidentally pulled the computer power out while it was on. As with MasterBootRecord or Grub I didn't change any of that and i don't know what GRUB is.

By the way when i tried to do chkdsk on the command prompt in the repair windows area, it says the disk is read only or something.

With linux installed, it is really difficult to recover a non bootable windows. Specially in a situation when you dont know what GRUB is.

We need to see some more things here. Hope you have access to another computer? Download the Partition Wizard Bootable CD (the last one in the list), burn the ISO in a blank CD or in a USB flash stick. Boot into the PW GUI following the instructions. When you are on the last sreen, take a camera snap of the screen (try to make the camera snap readable) and upload the snap here.

Alright here is the Partition Wizard screen: http://j.mp/Y1iH39 . It is the highlighted disk. I found out that GRUB is btw

Also, I can browse through the hard drive from ubuntu linux

Edit: to clarify, I just run live Linux from a flash drive. nothing Linux related is the hdd
