Why do I get a blue screen when I boot up my laptop?

by on November 8, 2011

Q: Hi,

I’ve got a massive problem with my laptop. Every time I load it up I get a blue screen and the ‘technical information’ STOP:0x00008086. I have seen answers to this where it is suggested you go into safe mode and then follow various steps from there, however when I press F8 I get a loud beeping noise and the computer carries on loading before coming up with the same blue screen.

I am able to get into Setup Utility (F2) and Boot Manager (F12) but thats all.

Help would be massively appreciated

    If the laptop is still under any kind of warranty, contact the manufacturer.

    What is the make and model of the laptop, and what version of Windows are you running?
