Hello, I've been battling with my pc ever since it blue screened and constantly going into the "Choose default OS screen" and not letting me do anything, then restarting and auto repairing. It just repeats that over and over. I've tried looking around and I've tried some of the "Fixes" like doing chkdsk stuff. Nothing has worked yet.

Please help.

:welcome:   Daniel Wills,


Some questions if I may,


constantly going into the "Choose default OS screen



When does the above message appear.

Was Windows 8.1 installed on the computer when you got it or has it been upgraded.

Does the computer have a dual boot set up such as Windows 8.1 and Windows 7.

Does the HDD activity LED blink, stay lit or not light up at all.

Tell us what exactly you have tried so nothing gets repeated.


Please provide information about your computer, this includes is it a notebook or desktop, is it a custom build or brand name such as Dell or HP, if it is a brand name provide the model name or series number (not serial) if a custom build post the brand and model name or number for the MB, Ram (including the amount) add on video card if one is used and the PSU (power supply unit) providing these details will enable us to better assist you.
