    I turn on the PC which does a checkdisk. Either I skip it or let it run through, it doesnt matter. After the check, a blue screen pops up quick and then the computer reboots. The same happens when I try to run it in safemode and VGA mode.

    I've tried the "Last Known Good Config" option, but the same happens.

    Have you tried running: CHKDSK C: /f

    It will fix any disk errors it finds and it should stop it from running each time you boot.
