Windows 7 Boot Issue

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi everyone, I've got a pretty big problem with midterms right around the corner.

 

I have a late 2012 Lenovo Y580 running Windows 7 Home Premium (not sure if it's 32 or 64 bit), with a 500GB HDD, i7 3610QM, GTX 660M, and 8GB of RAM.

 

Ever since yesterday I've been having problems booting up after experiencing a BSOD. When it does boot, it boots into safe mode but it takes a good 15 minutes to do so. Since then, it's done the following: chkdsk and automatic system repair (which took over 8 hours). I'm currently attempting a system restore to last week, before this problem, and it's been almost 2 hours since I started it.

 

I'm doubtful that it'll work, I hope I'm wrong. Anyways, I was wondering if anyone had any ideas as to what the issue is. I wish I could provide more details but that's all I can remember with midterms coming up.

 

Thank you in advance for any and all help.

Is the computer bad in any way? Has it been abused? My first thought would be a bad hard drive.

Have you been able to check the dump files?  Would you be able to check the event viewer?  If you aren't even able to boot the machine, there's a pretty good chance you're gonna have to re-install Windows.

I have done quite a bit of heavy gaming on it over the years while also using it for school. However, I did recently take it apart using a guide and cleaned it thoroughly.

I haven't checked those, mostly because I don't know how to. The machine has been able to boot though, but it takes a long take time and boots directly into safe mode.

alright, after a blue screen, once you get into safe mode, you are going to press the windows key + R, and then type eventvwr and press enter.  In here you will go to Windows Logs > System.  You can then scroll through and look for Errors (not warnings) and see if there are any that cause catastrophic failures.
