At startup everything is fine for about 30 seconds and then blue screen appears with message.

 

Have tried updating some of the drivers and scouring the web for some kind of anwser but coming up blank.

Any help would be appreciated.

Any advice would be appreciated!

Was it Safe Mode with Networking that you tried.

 

Apart from having no wireless connection does the computer work ok in Safe Mode.

 

What storage capacity is the hard drive and how much free storage space was/is available on it.

Hello elielieli,

 

You need to free up some space on the C: drive before the data on it becomes corrupt or in a worse case scenario the HDD itself fails, see my canned text below for an explanation.

 

Please note that in order to avoid data corruption and/or mechanical HDD failure for data only HDDs you must always have a minimum of 10% of the HDDs overall storage capacity available as free space and between 20 and 25% of a HDDs overall storage capacity available as free space if the OS is on it, the free space allows for information to be copied to and from the drive efficiently and it reduces the risk of the OS being overwritten/becoming corrupted by a simple task such as installing a Windows or a third party software update.
 
Not having the above can render a computer inoperable if the HDD concerned has the OS on it due to the MBR (Master Boot Record) becoming damaged/corrupt, please see information @ http://pcsupport.abo...sterbootrec.htm

Blue Screen Error or Stop Error is common in all Windows based Operating Systems.

In Windows 8 Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) appear with a big smiley icon : ( and a Text showing to restart your computer. If this Blue Screen Error continues it results in loss of Application data.

Reasons for the occurrence of Blue Screen Error

Hardware Failure In the System

Using Old Version of Drivers

If the System is affected by Virus

Failure of RAM and Power Supply Problems

What is the situation with the computer at present.

 

The low amount of free storage space that you have or had on the HDD will cause you no end of problems, if you free up around 7.5 to 8GB of space on the drive you may find that it resolves the problem/s that you are having.

Good work on freeing up the space on the HDD  :thumbsup: 

 

Have you tried Safe Mode with Networking since freeing up the space - try it with the anti virus disabled if you have to.

 

I have looked for drivers for your computer direct from ASUS but am not having any luck so we may need to look at getting the notebook connected to the internet via the ethernet port if that is at all possible.

Ive found this.

http://support.asus.com/download.aspx?SLanguage=en&m=A6F&p=3&s=41&os=17&hashedid=eiVRQLtgi9F4blXh 

Some of them have been installed.Some of them Im not entirely sure how to go about installing.

At the moment Im not in possession of an ethernet cable.

Just when you need one!

So far Ive been downloading the drivers on a separate laptop and transferring them via memory stick.

I have been searching for drivers for an ASUS A6000  :(

 

May I suggest that you do not update any drivers that do not have a yellow ! or red X against them in the Device Manager.

 

If the drivers at your link are the correct ones the one you need for wireless is the Wireless Lan Driver and Application WinXP, save it to your thumb drive, restart your notebook in Safe Mode, install the wireless driver, restart the computer and test please.

Is the wireless device enabled in the BIOS and listed in Device Manager

 

Does the computer have an LED that lights up to show when it is turned on, if yes is it lit.

 

Is there any wireless icon on the taskbar to show that the device is working and just not connected to the internet.

Is that; 

yes and yes

no and no

 

If the wireless device is enabled in the BIOS, listed in Device Manager but has no yellow ! or red X against it then unless it is bad it should work and there should be a wireless icon on the taskbar.

 

If you click on the wireless device in Device Manager, right click and then click on properties, what does it say please.
