Hi,
this is telling you that a Scan/checkdisk program is running.
to get rid of this, run scandisk within windows, also go to Start/all programs/startup and remove from the startup if applicable.
to bypass on boot-up, simply press enter beefore the program Starts to run.

Hi,

Assuming that you didn't do a fresh install of windows, Do this:


When the blue screen with the HP Invent logo

appears, press the F10 key on the keyboard. (You

have only a few seconds to press the F10 key
before the normal startup process continue

Then Select Full System Recovery (which will erase whatever you had in computer such as personal files, etc). Pretty much your system will be back as Factory Image
Thanks

Computer has viruses which might be why it has a the blue screen


Try entering safe mode and doing the virus scan:
  • Switch on your PC
  • Before the Windows Logo screen appears press F8 to get the startup options menu
  • Chose Safe Mode
  • Once your computer boots, run AVG and let it remove all the viruses. Reboot and it should go into Windows as normal.You might have to rerun the scan a few times to get rid of everything but it should do the job.
