Blue screen w/msg: A promblem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.

First msg. before blue screen is: We apologize for the inconvenience, but Windows did not start successfully. A recent hardware or software change might have caused this.

If your computer stopped responding, restarted unexpectedly, or was automatically shut down to protect your files and folders, choose Last Known Good Configuration to revert to the most recent settings that worked.

    When I turn on the computer, I get a black screen with a msg: "We apologize for the inconvenience, but Windows did not start sucessfully. A recent hardware or software change might have caused this. " So, I have tried to start in "Safe Mode," and "Last Known Good Configuration ( your most recent settings that worked )," After a few seconds of false hope, I get the blue screen w/msg. At that point, nothing responds.

    Try putting your computer into safe mode by turning the power off. Wait 30 seconds. Turn the power on. At the start of the computer booting press and hold down on the f8 button until the menu pops up. Use the up and down arrows to select safe mode and press enter.



    After your computer is finish starting up in safe mode, restart the computer the normal way.

Since you are not able to boot in any of the modes better disconnect all the external devices like Printer.. and reboot the computer..

If the problem still lies then let us know the error code that you see on the blue screen.. you may have to perform repair installation with the help of the windows disk

good luck

Youre probably going have to restore it. By doing that if there is a hardware issure it should be obvious by the installation process.

Sometimes a video card can go bad and cause this to happen. If you have another card laying around the house you might want to swap them and see if thats the case.

If the video card is ok try to reset your motherboard. just open your cpu and look for a battery on the board. (be sure your pc in unplugged) remove the battery by pressing the little lever in the bottom part of the battery after a few seconds place it back again just by pushing it.

Try also disk cleanup, disk defragmenter and system file checker...

hope this helps...

note: system file checker works works with the windows disk, it restores corrupted system files with a new one...

and Return BIOS settings to their default levels,go to BIOS by pressing F2 or del exactly after you press the power button and the screen show up

A blue screen appears when i turn on my computer.... sayin "a problem has been detected and windows has beed shut down to prevent damage to your computer."


A blue screen or Blue Screen Of Death, BSOD, is generally caused by a corrupt driver or a bad software installation.
First, you need to determine the STOP code that is on that screen.
  • Start in safe mode, press F8 repeatably as the computer starts up,
  • check Disable automatic restart on system failure (This prevents Windows from automatically restarting if an error causes Windows to fail.)

OK, now the BSOD will stay there so you can determine what caused your problem. Report back the stop code and any information about a driver that caused the problem so we can be of further help.
If this answers your question, I would appreciate 4 thumbs
