There is a possibility that the RAM or another component connected to your motherboard is going defective on you.

you may use boot to "last know good configuration" try to reboot the computer once again, then while it is initiating, start pressing "F2" until a menu appear, now select "last know good configuration"

this method may depend on what is the type of your motherboard, but usually it is F2 or F5
if this did not work, you may try to remove your RAM, clean the contact with a pencil eraser, then put it back in.

should you have other questions, just let me know.

Hp pavilion slimline s3600t desktop pc - Wont boot up, flashes to blue screen after hp blue screen and restarts. no option for safe mode either


A Blue Screen is more time than not indicative of a driver issue or some hardware issue. First of all when it boots to the screen that shows Safe Mode and the other options, scroll down and see if there is an option to Stop or Disable Automatic Restart on Boot. This will stop the screen from restarting itself when the blue screen appears and give you a chance to read and see what the error is. Afterwards it is ok to run Startup Repair. Startup Repair does not delete any of your personal files. Let startup repair run and then see if it boots. Once again, startup repair does not delete any of your music, documents, pictures, videos or programs. System Restore does not delete any of you documents, music, pictures, videos or programs. System Recovery WILL DELETE all of your music, pictures, videos, documents & any programs you've added since you brought the computer home from the store. System Recovery sets your computer back to the very first time you turned it on after you purchased it. I would run the startup repair, if that does not fix your problem, see if you can run a System Restore. A lot of time the Restore Points are damaged or missing when this happens, but give it a try and restore to a point before you started having the blue screen issue. If all fails you're going to need a system disc so that you can get into the Recovery Console so that you can enter a dos command in the little black box that opens up with white letters. You want to type: chkdsk /r
Let it run. It will run well over an hour and you will notice the percentage of completion going from high to low, but that's ok. Let it run to completion then try rebooting. If this doesn't work, you're going to need to take it to a repair shop or reload the operating system yourself.

Cannot start my start laptop its as soon as I put the password blue screen appears crash dump cannot start


Would be nice to know error code on the blue screen.That is pointing on the problem-and solution.Anyway, you can try system restore.On boot,computer shows start-up options, and among them is "System Restore".Hit that button and try to restore OS in earlier point of time.Or try Safe mode.Run-msconfig-enter-system restore.To be honest, from my bad experience, blue screen on boot is almost always connected to dying hard drive. Good luck,and keep us posted.

How to fix blue screen when trying to start computer


it will depend the error message. however; you can try this.

start you computer on safe mode. (i am telling you this will depend on error message)

to start you pc in safe mode hit F8 key simultaneously. when the windows pop up. with you down arrow in you keyboard select. SAFE MODE only. (if you go trought your log in screen you will be lucky) . if so
log in as normal. click yes for safe mode question

(THE NEXT ADVICE IS ONLY IF SYSTEM RESTORE IS ON)

i recomend you if you can log in onto your pc in safe mode to do a System reestore. because the blue screen could be a bad driver or bad update that you recently did.

so to make an system restore follow this. To use System Restore to restore Windows XP to a previous state, follow these steps:
  1. Log on to Windows as an administrator.
  2. Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, and then click System Restore.
