Let me preface this by saying that I usually have no idea what I'm doing when it comes to fixing any kind of software or hardware issue in computers. So if anyone does have a solution, please explain it as if you were talking to a toddler.
Anyway, on to my issue. For a couple weeks, my computer would randomly crash into a BSOD with a message saying that it was dumping physical memory in order to prevent further damage or something like that. Then it would restart and boot up like normal. This continued for a about two or three weeks, sometimes it would crash into a BSOD two or three times a day. This had been occuring for a while up until this morning when I was watching YouTube and then it crashed into a BSOD that scrolled down quickly before it went black (this was atypical because it would usually just crash into a static blue screen. So, my computer starts up again and this time I get message saying that the start up program now contained invalid files and I wouldn't be able to start my computer normally until the problem was rectified.
Now, I know I need to use the startup repair option in the windows recovery environment but I can't get to it. My internal disk drive is broken so I got an external one. I don't if thats an issue but I'm just putting that out there. So now I can't boot up my computer normally whatsoever. All I get is the error screen and when I press "Enter" it just restarts my computer.
If anyone has any kind of help they can offer, I'd be very very grateful. If anyone needs anymore information that I didn't provide already, then let me know and I'll try my best to clarify and get the information you need.
Please help. I really don't want to go out and get a new hard drive and operating system.
