Windows 7: Windows 7 Asus blank blue screen upon startup

Windows 7 Asus blank blue screen upon startup

Hi everyone! My parents have a windows 7 Asus pc (I believe home premium) and when started it goes to the black screen stating that it was shut down incorrectly and gives you the option of running startup repair or starting windows normally. When starting windows normally is chosen it appears to begin starting as normal and then goes to a blank blue screen (of death?) with a black border on the left and bottom sides. I'm not much more computer savvy than they are and have no idea what the problem is or where to start. What does this mean?

Hi,

Are you experiencing a BSOD? Like this?:



Are you able to boot into Advanced Boot Options?
If so please choose "Last known Good Configuration"

If you are able to boot into windows, reconfigure windows to collect the correct info
You want small memory dumps - "MiniDumps"

And here are the instructions for posting:

Tip   Tip
Ensure you click the "GRAB ALL" button and then wait for each window to appear in turn and then click OK



Cheers

Dave

What happens when you choose Startup Repair?

If it won't start then work through these steps for Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Start.

If you know the cause was shutting it down improperly then you can use the disk provided to run Startup Repair a few times from disk which might work better. It should offer to System Restore but if not run it next from the disk's System Recovery Options.

Otherwise work through all of the steps leading up to if necessary rescuiing your files to run Factory Recovery or do the superior Clean Reinstall.
