Hi guys, my Lenovo laptop recently have some BSOD problems. I usually can't boot it successfully as wild blue screens will appear before entering the window,
those typical blue screens are :
-unmountable boot volume
-fatal system error
-bad system config info
-the program cannot start as %hs is missing from your computer
-process1 initialization fail
etc..
I decide to set it to factory setting after uncountable fail in attempt to boot my laptop (sometimes i'm lucky that i manage to pass through the BSOD),
everything was fine, until I reboot it for an window update.... and Sigh!! Wild blue screen appears again!
My laptop is only 2.5 years old, if factory default setting doesn't help, what do I do? Appreciated for any opinions!!

Before the factory default setting, I tried to run the HDD diagnose, but some error appears when it's loading, same as when I run chkdsk
everything seems so weird : /

To get to a "back to factory" environment without success could mean that the Recovery partition has been compromised.

Running a HDD diagnostic tool without success can mean only one thing.

Thanks for the reply. Does it mean I can just buy a new hard disk and solve the problem?
I have limited knowledge on computer, sorry..

Edit: Moreover, when I run the HDD Diagnosis, the message on it is : Error code 0000:Read Vertification failed.

Do you have the 25 digit/character key sticker on the laptop Douap, you may find it underneath the machine?

It is Windows 7 Pro OA,
AND! I burned a win 7 cd and repair my computer yesterday.
Surprisingly I can boot it now. Although it takes a long long time to boot and it freezes a lot.
I am so happy that it isn't totally broken. But I think it is a matter of time that it will die again.
And seems the fan is noiser than usual, it has a 'fuuuuu' sound in every few seconds... hope it can survive for at least a few nights..

It sounds like you have not replaced the hard drive yet, would this be correct?
