Hello poolwizard, welcome to Seven Forums!


Are you sure you don't have a System Restore point to use from before the issue started; have a look at Option Two of this tutorial at the link below and be sure to post back with any further questions you may have and to keep us informed.

nope, i have no options to choose from. my laptop is fairly new, and i didn't really expect to get a BSOD that easily.. so making a system restore wasn't really in my mind.

ASUS Recovery Partition

Using the Recovery Partition:
1. Press [F9] during bootup (requires a Recovery Partition)
2. Press [Enter] to select Windows Setup [EMS Enabled]
3. Read the “ASUS Preload Wizard” screen and click Next.
4. Select a partition option and click Next. Partition options:

Recover Windows to first partition only.
This option will delete only the first partition, allowing you to keep other partitions, and create a new system partition as drive “C”.

Recover Windows to entire HD.
This option will delete all partitions from your hard disk drive and create a new system partition as drive “C”.

Recover Windows to entire HD with 2 partition.
This option will delete all partitions from your hard drive and create two new partitions “C” (60%) and “D” (40%).
5. Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the recovery process.

ok thank you, if i choose the first options, the first partition only one? when it delete everything that i have downloaded/installed on my C: drive only? if so, i will copy and paste most of my important work and programs into D: , which won't get affected?
