Windows BSOD on SHUTDOWN PLEASE HELP

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hello all!

Well this morning I was happily playing some BFBC2 before school, and as I turned off my computer it went to the normal windows 7 shutting down screen and after a few seconds it blue screened on me and then restarted on my own. Upon restart, I logged into windows and shut down again, same story. I couldn't tinker with it as I had school. When I came home I turned on my computer, logged into windows, and shut down expecting a blue screen, but it shut down normally. When I started it back up it posted as usual and went to a black screen that said something like Restart your computer or insert proper bootable device and press any key to continue. I pressed a few keys, the message repeated, so I shut down and turned my computer back on, the message was gone. I did not want to restart again and risk having that happen again, and here I am typing on the very computer. What could be causing this problem? Do I need to reinstall windows or is it a failing harddrive? If I need to reinstall windows, how would I do that because I had Windows Vista 32-bit and then my brother used his college discount to install an upgrade to windows 7 32 bit through the internet. While I booted up the last time, my hard drive was making a screeching sorta noise. Could someone help me out please? This is all my sig rig.

Oh no! How much longer do you think it has? And how should I go about backing it up? How will I get windows on my next hard drive? Do I need to buy a new OS too?

Before you assume its dying, double check the connections (sata, power ect) that they are all pushed in and secure.

Dont you still have your disk for your OS ? Thats how you would go about re installing.

Well, I have the windows vista 32bit disc, but my brother goes to college, so he got me a Windows 7 32bit downloadable version and it gave me a different activation code for Windows 7. Now I don't know how to get that, or how I can reinstall Windows 7 if the .iso file is on this HDD. Should I put it on a USB?

Your hard drive is dying man, it's as simple as that. There is no way to tell how long your hard drive has. Errors will become more frequent randomly until the hard drive completely stops working. As soon as you mentioned it prompted you to insert a bootable device, that gave it away.

Buy a new hard drive and install a fresh copy of Windows on it.
