Windows 7 fails to start with BSOD.

Hey guys, new to this forum looking forward to helping where i can.

I am having recent issues with my Windows 7 machine. When i turn her on, boot it up, i get past the loading bar, then it BSOD.

Now last night it was giving me a physical dump, today it is not. So i can not record the failure number. It also does the same thing when trying to boot into safe mode.

I booted to my Windows 7 CD and tried Startup repair.

Startup Repair cannot repair this computer automatically.

Problem signature:
event name: Startuprepairoffline
sig 1: 6.1.7600.16385
sig 2: 6.1.7600.16385
sig 3: unknown
sig 4: 21201055
sig 5: Autofailover
sig 6: 5
sig 7: 0xf4
OS version: 6.1.7600.
Local ID: 1033

Any help is greatly appreciated.

It's always good to see more members helping out around here.

We really need to dmps, located in C:\Windows\Minidump. Zip or RAR them up, and upload them for analysis.

If you can't boot even in Safe Mode, take the hard drive to another machine and copy the dmps from there.

Without seeing them, I can only speculate. It sounds like a hardware problem, so you may want to test your RAM and hard drive.

Download a copy of Memtest86 and burn the ISO to a CD using ImgBurn. Boot from the CD, and run at least 5 passes.

For hard drive testing utilities, see this link: Hard Drive Diagnostics Tools and Utilities (Storage) - TACKtech Corp.

Good luck!
