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.

If you don't understand our suggestions, please ask for us to explain it further.
As for me, I try to make all my suggestions as simple as following the steps line-by-line

If you don't understand a line - just ask me to explain it more :0)


For starters, please start by running these free, bootable diagnostics:  http://www.carrona.org/initdiag.html

This'll work for Win7 and earlier - so let us know if you have Windows 8 or later


Also let us know the make and model of your system.


In order to get to the Startup Repair option you'll either have to get the system to do it (by rebooting during the boot process 3 times), or by using a repair/installation disk.

Do you have one of those?
