Windows 7: BSOD Issue after Removing dust in PC + Alternative Boot

BSOD Issue after Removing dust in PC + Alternative Boot

Hi Guys

I recently had a BSOD which had me unable to boot my PC (Reason for BSOD are from my previous post), but I luckily managed to boot but the problem is in order for me to boot my PC, I have to hit F11, and Select my SATA Hard Drive. If I don't do this process to boot it up, my PC crashes and restarts or in some cases it goes straight to this BSOD error which I have been having...

Please help. I'll attach 2 Images, the one is the BSOD Error and the other is the screen where I hit F11 to access my boot devices.

BSOD - imgbox - fast, simple image host
F11 Screen - imgbox - fast, simple image host

Power the computer down, open it, and make sure that everything is plugged in all the way, and that all memory and cards are securely in their slots. Unplug then replug all items, to make sure that the connectors are clean. Change your CMOS battery if it has been a few years since you last changed it.

While doing the above, either wear an anti-static wrist band, or touch something metal a few times per minute. And handle cards and memory only by the edges - don't touch any metal on these items.

Hi... Thanks for the response... I'll make sure everything is plugged in... When I cleaned it, there are only 4 things I unplugged
  1. CPU Fan
  2. Hard Drive
  3. Secondary Fan(The one at the back)
  4. CD/DVD Writer

And they all seem to be working just fine... But I'll look for the CMOS Battery...
My worry is now, I can no longer boot, even with my alternative method. I have a new BSOD Error, Which suggests that I run a chkdsk /f... And I did but I still had the same error. I'll attach the image link below

I have attached my file to my BSOD but the PC is unable to generate a Mini dump when it hits the BSOD, and I'm still having this issue and I've checked everything on PC and it seems fine, and have cleared my CMOS with the jumper but nothing has helped
