    Unsure of computer specs; I know that is a an HP computer.

    This is my dad's computer, and he said that while he was watching "videos", the desktop PC popped up a BSOD of the Page_Fault_in_non_paged_area error type. After waiting several minutes to re-power the PC, the computer does not load anything, and the desktop emits out a loud and non-stop "whirring" noise. I decided to check the Ram one by one, and they all (individually and collectively) load up past the screen with F11,etc command options, but go no further when the screen becomes black (with a blinking underscore in the top left and an off-centered orange block). I've attached a picture of this.

    Hey guys! Thanks a lot for the responses. Alt F10 does not work. The computer loaded to the blue HP screen that shows (F11 F10, ESC options), and would then arrive a at blank screen with a blinking cursor and orange box.

    I have solved the issue by using a Windows 7 Repair disk. I used this repair disk to run Command Prompt, and I entered the following :

    bootsect /nt60
    bootrec /fixboot
    bootrec /fixmbr

    I hope this helps anyone with similar problems. As for the above command lines, I am not sure what they do (they work), and would love an explanation. Thanks Techs
