Have a problem with my S205, Windows 7 updated through windows update and restarted upon restart I am getting The Blue Screen,
I tried to boot in safe mode etc.. But did not help, still got the blue screen
I tried windows repair but it failed
I know I had system restore but it can't find it
and even tried to reinstall windows but it ain't happening as the windows version that came with the netbook is asking for a driver which it doesn't have
Solved! Go to Solution.

The solution was simple. I noticed that the error was caused by lenovo ee boot optimizer "fbfmon.sys"
so my my solution -
boot it windows repair tool
selected command prompt
navigated to windows/system32/drivers/
and simply deleted it from the command line del fbfmon.sys
rebooted the system
windows starts as normal
unistalled lenovo eeboot optimizer
downloaded eeboot optimizer from lenovo and reinstalled it
hope this helps others!
and i know what DOS means

After further investigation I found out that it is not entirely Lenovo ee boot optimizer alone that caused the problem but also windows update.
What happened Windows downloaded and updated as normal and while in the procedure of restarting to finish updates boot kicked in and in the mix of things something went wrong,,

Followed Macphesto's post:
Booted with Ubuntu Live CD,
navigated to Windows/System32/drivers,
Boots fine since, but I wouldn't bother re-installing the crappy software.

If you don't find "fbfmon.sys", you'll need to find it on another drive. I too didn't find "fbfmon.sys" at first and I was on "Drive X:". Had to hunt for the drive that "fbfmon.sys" was on by changing the drive one letter at a time. I started with C: and went up from there. Found "fbfmon.sys" on Drive E: by typing "E:\" (without the quotes) and then pressing ENTER. Then go to path given in the above post.
