Are you using SSD or HDD ?

If HDD then download and install free version of CCleaner and run Registry tool to fix corrupter registry keys and check if the problem still exist.

Hi Sir,

It's a legitimate laptop, been using for 9 months. That is no parameters shown on the BSOD, I scan on the QR code only to get me to " Troubleshoot Blue Screen Errors" and the page is nothing much.

Thanks!

Did anything change recently? Maybe a piece of hardware or a new software application?

Hi Sir,

I did a diagnostic test on F12 there and no hardware were failure.

No new hardware or software was added.

Thanks!

Try this:
go to BIOS, set the SATA configuration to IDE or AHCI, save and exit and retest.

Hi Sir,

Thank you for reverting back.

IDE or AHCI still same.

Can boot from my usb driver for windows 10 but the data is too precious to be reformatted.

Thanks!

You need to use a different computer and use the choice "Make media for a different PC"  and then proceed.

What options do you have when you tap F8 or F12 while booting?  Do you see a option to select F8 for advanced options?

If you see the F8 option select it the select disable automatic restart on system failure.

Thanks, I solved by taking out the harddisk from the laptop and use hard drive holder station to retrieve the data out and then success reformat and insert back the data and redo the whole laptop. Appreciate for all the advice and help given.
