After a little research I can explain it, we can check the hardware, but if its not the hardware you can do two things: send the computer off (if still under warranty to be repair) or you can reload your operating system and see if that does it.
The Blue Screen of Death happens when your computer has run into a critical error so it shuts itself down with the BSOD to protect itself from damage. In order to check your hardware go to the Device Manager and look down the list of devices and see if you have any yellow, black or red symbols with the ! after them. If so let me know and we can fix it from that point. If not then it is your operating system. As I stated you can reinstall or send for repairs... let me know how it turns out.

My asus x502c won't come on only black screen with a mouse how do I get it to switch on?

Pres and hold CONTROL, ALT, and DELETE together and then release. The Task Manager will appear - first check under the Programs tab for running applications and END anything running. If nothing there, go to PROCESSES and start ENDING anything you don't recognize, ONE AT A TIME. This will usually release whatever is running and restore your desktop quickly.

If you are not comfortable using the Task Manager, restart your computer in SAFE MODE by pressing F8 BEFORE the Windows start screen appears. When given options, select SAFE MODE with NETWORKING. Once you have successfully booted into safe mode, your computer "usually" restarts normally when you reboot it again. Regular mode will be the default when you reboot.

Windows hiccups sometimes.

Crashed Windows : No Problem

MS Windows, irrespective if its version, is famous for crashing. We have all witnessed the infamous "blue screen of death" once in a while. And when it does crash, we have to reinstall the operating system. Thus loosing the precious data that we have collected over the years. A long but avoidable sob story. Avoidable!!! Yes. Read on.When you install Windows, by default it is installed on C: drive in Windows directory. And all its successive directories are inside this Windows directory. So, if we reinstall Windows and do not take due precaution we will again use the same Windows and successive directories to install it, thus overwriting the previous ones. And thus destroying our data, as most of it lies in My Documents, including MY Pictures, My Videos, My Webs etc. How to avoid loosing the data? Well, very simple. Install Windows in a different directory, like WINXP or ABCD or whatever you like to name it. And get a new My Documents, My Pictures and so on and so forth. And when the PC/laptop has finally rebooted after the reinstall is over, you can go to the Windows directory and look for your old My Documents etc folders. And you will find that your old documents, pictures, videos and webs are all safe and available to you.One small problem though. Your C: drive may not be large enough for holding two copies of Windows installations. Well, in that case you can install the new copy on a different drive. What will happen is that C: drive would still be used but only for a small percentage of Windows and a huge chunk would be copied/written to the new drive.So, next time you see the blue screen of death, do not panic, just look straight into its eyes and do not shy away from reinstalling Windows.This, however should not lessen the importance of BACKUP. You still have to make a habit of backing up your data regularly. There is no short cut to hard work (read backup).

Acer inspire one d260 cannot start system recovery

You should start windows in safe mode. By pressing the F8 key right when Windows starts, usually right after you hear your computer beep when you reboot it, you will be brought to a menu where you can choose to boot into safe mode. If it does not work on the first try, reboot and try again as you have to be quick when you press it. when it starts in safe mode, run system restore and when prompted for a restore date, choose an older restore date, probably one you a sure was perfect 2 days before the blue screen issue. This should get your system running in good shape.

This is usually a problem associated with NOD32 or Cisco software conflicting with drivers or other software. If you can get past the grey screen even once, uninstall the software and reboot. If you can't get past the grey screen at all, then you might have to completely reinstall windows :(.

I'd look for professional hands-on help in this case if you're not comfortable doing this.

OK, first of all the blue screen appears only when windows is loaded so that means that you are still not rebooting from the cd, Turn on the computer and immediately press either the F1 key or the F2 key at one-second intervals to enter the BIOS setup utility. As the Guys at say it.
Then go to a screen called boot sequence which should allow you to choose from where the computer is going to restart from. make sure that the CD drive is first on this list then SAVE AND EXIT. after that, the windows vista cd should work.
make sure you press whatever key it wants you to press to enter to windows vista.

Desktop PC crashing all at least once every session

This problem I had multiple times. The way I solved this was by reinstalling the O.S on my computer. Yes, you will have to lose everything, but if you want to use that computer again that's what should be done. However, there is a way to retain all your files. if you go out and buy a Hard Drive Case, and extract your internal Hard Drive from your Computer, You can hook up that hard Drive to your case and upload all your files onto another computer. A Case for your hard drive costs roughly 15-120$, depending on how fancy of a case you want.
