Blue Screen at Start up, can't access rescue and recovery.

I recently had my computer crash, I suspect it was to do with a virus as I'd been using Limewire earlier that day.

 

Anyway, I now can't start up the computer, upon powering on I'll get to the screen asking me to choose between the options, Start windows normally, start with previous settings that worked and start with safe mode.  I've tried starting with all three of them but each just leads me onto the loading screen where it will attempt to load for about twenty seconds then flash up a blue screen  for a second and restart itself.

 

I tried to access rescue and recovery to see if I could fix the issue but it just fails to load at the introduction screen with the life belt.

 

Does anyone know of anyway I could fix this?

Hi,welcome to the forums

 

Just a thought,you also get an option called "directory restore services mode" when you press F8 during startup,it worked out for me most of the times when i get a BSOD,check out that option.

Re: Blue Screen at Start up, can't access rescue and recovery.

you may want to Reinstall your Ram JUST IN CASE.

you never know if it was Caused by chip creep

then if what the other person said doesnt work you may want to call lenovo and ask for the recovery CD's
