Laptop: Dell Inspiron N4110
OS: Windows 7
Current Problem: During boot BSOD causes a millisecond of blue screen and the system restarts. BSOD says
"A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer. If this is the first time you've seen this sop error screen restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps: Check for viruses on your computer (done). Remove any newly installed hard drives or hard drive controllers (cannot be done even with system restore). Check your hard drive to make sure it is properly configured and terminated (I don't know how to do this). Run CHKDSK /F to check for hard drive corruption, and then restart your computer (cannot be done in current state)"
I completed a full scan using Microsoft Defender Offline (USB).
Following the scan the defender removed a trojan called alureon.
Following this trojan removal, the computer has not booted fully to windows since.
After a failure the system restarts and goes to a "Windows Error Recovery" screen. On this screen the warning says "Windows failed to start... I can choose start normally or launch start up repair.
If I try to use startup repair it says "windows cannot repair this computer automatically". (I tried system restore from the start up repair to no avail)
If I try normal start it just goes to BSOD and repeats these steps.
Please let me know what can be done to bring my computer back to life.
