Okay, my laptop turns off as soon as it loads or freezes then a blue screen flashes and then turns off. I tried the repairing start-up but it won't fix it, saying that it can't repair it. The only way it works is on safe mode. Please do help me.

I tried twice with no success, once the test is done and it turns on, it freezes.

I finished doing the standard test, it sees no problems but once I'm log in, it loads really slow and then it just restarts all over again.

well I just finish doing the extended test and it took me like 8 hours. The standard test takes like maybe 30mins, around that time.

This is what I read from the blue screen that flash:

Check to make sure any new hardware or software is properly installed. If this is a new installation, ask your hardware or software for any windows updates you might need.

If problems continues, disable or remove any newly installation or software. Disable BIOS memory options such as cachi... If you need to use safe mode to remove or disable comp... your computer. Press F8 to select advance startup options to select safe mode
