Re: Blue Screen of Death during startup
When you get the BSOD - it gives a brief description of what the error is - this should lead you in the proper direction for finding the culprit - is the computer a new configuration - is it an old system that just started doing this? Have you made any change? All these things have to be considered and evaluated.

Startup repair is only meant for fixing software startup issues, mainly programs blocking a startup or registry/startup config errors.
The BSOD or Blue Screen Of Death error is generally aimed at hardware errors. Specifically, it could be your RAM, Hard drive, or any other main component in your computer. The most common is RAM, try replacing your memory sticks and see if it works. Hard drives can cause this error as well when they are on their last legs.
All in all, you may have to re-install windows completely.
blue screen of death is commonly caused by conflicting drivers, softwares or hardware components. whenever thses things occured it usually creates a dump file that serve as a log file to check the culprit. you may try exploring your event viewer for a detailed info. by right clicking on computer selecting manage. for slow performance, regardless of what specification you have for the system, the more programs you install and you let them part of the startup is the reason why system suddenly degrade its performance. you may try doing selective startup by configuring which program to load automatically by going to start from the sarch box type msconfig > enter > click on the services tab > click on hide all microsoft services click on disable all > apply > click on startup tab > disable all > apply > ok and reboot the system. hope than helps.
Hi, Operating System does not respond is the major problem. This is a very commonly faced error by the users of the Windows 7 which leads to the Blue Screen of death to the system. The error message appears on the computer screen in the following form: "Windows Operating System is not responding" along with two options one "Close the Program" and other "Wait for the program to respond". But whenever the user attempts to close the program he comes up with a serious data loss. To solve this problem apply different troubling shooting methods or take help of the technical experts.
This sounds like the dreaded Windows Vista Black Screen of Death (KSOD). you might have a bad hard drive, but even more likely some software or a driver is causing a problem and caused Vista to get stuck. The repair will not work. You might be able to run a complete repair from the Windows Vista CD, if you have one. If you are not too experienced, take it to a reputable computer service center. If you are at all technical and have time, google your problem and you will see thousands of similar users with same problems.
This is one reason Microsoft released Windows 7 so soon.

BSOD = Blue Screen of Death
You have a problem with Windows booting.
When you computer starts up and it has passed the bios check start pressing F8 until you get the Windows start up options, select safe mode and see if windows then boots normally.
If it does then search/run msconfig.exe, on the General tab select Diagnostic startup, click OK and reboot and see if windows now loads.
If it does then you have a program or driver installed that is conflicting in Windows, so remove any recently installed programs or hardware drivers
Go back into msconfig and select Normal startup and see if Windows boots again.
See how you get on with that
Boot from startup floppy disks or CD-ROM, choose repair option during setup, and run Recovery Console. When you are logged on, you can run FIXMBR command to fix master boot record. This should solve your problem.
