Corrupted Operating System?

Apr 7, 2016 11:29AM PDT

My Asus X453S has a corrupted OS. Well that's what tech support told me. When I turn it on it just goes to the start up display of asus then back to black screen. How to fix this? Or can I reset it?

When booting from a DVD or USB-stick you don't enter Windows. If the same happens on that other boot device, it's not a corrupted OS, but bad hardware.
But we believe you, and you believe tech support, so it should work.

Google WINDOWS MEDIA CREATOR to make a bootable USB with standard Windows 10, if Asus says to use that. But maybe they have you use their own bootable media or a recovery partition.

1. For what?
2. What do you mean with "boot menu"?

The BIOS menu

Not really clear.

But OK, let's see if I can answer your question.

1. There's the BIOS setup to change the standard boot sequence. If that is set to boot from the hard disk first (and not from the optical drive or the USB) you can change it. If it's already set to boot from the optical drive or the USB before the hard disk, there is no need to go into the BIOS setup first.
2. Many BIOS'es (in my MSI motherboard it's F11) have the option to go into a menu to choose the boot device for this boot.. Even if your standard boot device is the hard disk, you can use that to boot from any other bootable device without going into the BIOS setup.

Sorry that this isn't a simple yes or no answer. The only possible one word answers are "maybe" and "depends".

paint the screen white

then you will never see the black screen again. Seriously though, use any boot CD or DVD and set the BIOS or use function button on startup to boot from it. If it boots and you see it on the screen, then your problem is the OS. if you still see nothing, then hardware problem.

Can you access the BIOS screen? Or UEFI screen?

Yes.
Apr 7, 2016 11:51AM PDT

I can enter BIOS

Sure, if it's a bootable usb device.

Now you are just using it as a test to isolate where the problem might be.

I agreed with the existence comments. I experienced this once and refreshing your Windows will work.
