You need to state the make and model number. Take the make and model number and search fornthe user manual. There should be instructions for reinstalling the os. There is often a button in the top row you can press that will start the process when the system starts. See if the button is listed on the screen when the system boots. It should say something like press (whatever key your system needs) to enter recovery or something similar. Usually the key would be unique to your system, and likely it would be colored differently from the restvof the keys.

SOURCE: blue screen error message, computer will not boot up

Check your ram. You may have a bad memory module. If you reinstalled your operating system on a different hard drive, then it sounds like it may be your memory. Turn the computer off, remove and reinsert the memory. Turn computer back on. If this does not work. Remove on of the memory modules and see how that works. Then if that doesn't work, remove the other memory module and plug the other one back in. Be sure the memory is seated properly. Always have the power off when doing this.

Enter current password on boot on acer aspire 5253g


If the pc doesn't have a BIOS password then:
1.- look at the error messages on the blue screen,
2.- the blue screen shows errors when a driver is bad or not the right one for the hardware or the OS is corrupted.
3.- try to boot using safe mode.
4.- after the logo and right after it shows the F2/F10/F12 key start tapping the F8 continuosly. If your here a beep stop tapping.

Getting a blue screen stop error, but cant log


Please try to start from the beginning and reformat the hard drive by shutting down the system with the cd drawer open. Then insert the windows disk and turn on the pc then the drawer closes and when it tells you boot from cd press enter. Then windows will load. It will give you a couple of options. Always choose format partition. Then you should not have any problems. Unless your hard drive is bad.

Blue screen error occured when start os installation after create partition,


The blue screen during reformatting is not an issue with the motherboard. The issue is with the hard drive. Find or purchase a new hard drive and try to reinstall Windows on the new drive.

Blue screen restart


have you tried to reformat your drive? BSOD usually means that there is an incompatibility issue or instability within your installed software.

so think for a moment and review the softwares that is installed on your computer.

best thing to do is try to reformat it and when the reformat is done. check is you still get the blue screen without installing your softwares.
