Windows 7: BSOD during Boot, never during use

BSOD during Boot, never during use

Hi,

My apologies on not following the posting guidelines earlier...here goes again!

I have BSOD on boot quite often now. Before coming here I have done all of the standard checks: scannow, memtest, chkdsk, virus/malware scan...all showing no problems, yet obv there is! If i try to boot from disc or usb with my lenovo factory recovery or Win7 system repair disc I will get to 'windows loading files' screen, and then after that the comp turns off abruptly or goes to BSOD. I often get BSOD when going to SafeMode, Startup repair or Lenovo recovery mode and only get through when i'm lucky and with many hard restarts. So If I wanted to do a full reinstall of OS, I can't even do that because of this boot issue, something is blocking the process.

Thankfully, for some strange reason, if i let it boot normally into the OS (after many hard restarts) I can get in and use my comp without any issues whatsoever, never had a bsod while in Windows, and in fact am using it right now.

Thanks again for any and all insight!

Please try the following:
  • Open taskmanager
    • Go to the tab startup
    • disable everything
  • Search msconfig and open it
    • Go to the tab services
    • Check 'hide microsoft services'
    • Uncheck all other services
    • Click apply and click ok
  • Reboot if asked
See if the problem persist, if the problem does not persist enable in the startup tab in taskmanager 1 item and in the services tab in msconfig also 1 service, reboot and see if the problem persist. Keep doing this until you find the culprit or there is nothing left.
If the problem still persist, try booting in safe mode and see if the problem still persist

Hi,

Still cannot boot to Disc, USB or startup repair after those changes. Booting to safe mode and Win7 through the HDD seems to work better though.
