I woke up yesterday and saw this error on my screen:
Reboot and Select proper Boot device
or Insert Boot Media in selected Boot device and press a key
The screen was completely black and only with those words on it.
I just restarted my computer and everything seemed fine until my computer would freeze after browsing the net for 20-30 min and restarts and I get that reboot message.
I made a "repair disc windows 7 32-bit" and did the System Recovery Options menu and Startup Repair thing. It said it had an error(s) and it was fixing it. I ran it again and there was no error the 2nd time.
I then did a SFC Scan, 3 times. Everything was ok all 3 times.
Next I went to the action center and saw I had 47 errors!! But 46 of them were the same I did what it told me to do and sent it to Windows. The errors were:
Problem: Shut down unexpectedly
files that help describe the problem:
Problem: video hardware error
files that help describe problem:
Just now while I was backing up my computer, my computer froze and restarted and it ended up at a black screen with just a blinking white line/underscore.
BTW, i've had this computer for about a year now and I don't remember installing any software in the last few days.
right now the problem seems to be using my computer and randomly my computer would freeze, restart, and give me 1. the black screen with a blinking white line 2. Reboot and Select proper Boot device or Insert Boot Media in selected Boot device and press a key
