1. Save your files with any number of Live bootable OSes. Old advice, newer OSes since!
2. Create a Windows repair USB or DVD and well, it takes a good working PC but you didn't reveal that yet. Read https://www.winhelp.us/create-a-recovery-drive-in-windows-8.html
3. You did step 1. Use Asus's factory recovery system (bye bye files you didn't backup.)
4. Order recovery media.
Hello. I am getting the blue screen of death and it is so quick, I cant even read the error code. It is on a constant loop and trying to go to safe mode using shift and F8 fail. I cannot get into sing in page so there is no option to boot from here. It is just the ASUS logo followed by the blue screen which just flashes and then goes back to ASUS,
i bought this loaded with Windows 8 but did updates so might be 8.1 now...but honestly not sure. So, I do NOT have a way to reload windows. (I saw the post on getting windows legally however, I do not know registration code as had this computer for years)
So, how do I get in to fix this if getting into safe mode fails and I have no reboot disc??
Lastly, i havent added an software or hardware so unsure what is causing this.
Can anyone help? I have searched google for answers and tried all I can but am now at a loss.
Thank you in advance.
