The image I was going to post was f2 run diags etc on a hp boot option screen

If Windows cannot boot completely and that's a desktop PC then you can detach the HD and attach it to another PC to extract the *.dmp file from it.

You can attach the .dmp file for analyzing that BSOD.  find the .dmp file in C:\windows\Minidump\*.dmp

The .dmp file contains more information about Blue Screen than that picture.

PC BSODs once a week

Customer is looking for advice and is not very technical and is impatient.  

I will probably have to be on site in the next few days

In the mean time, any advice appreciated.
So I should get that file

How do I get that diag screen on a HP PC ?

Different HP models get to the boot screen in different ways.   F2 F11 F12 are among the usual suspects.  The diagnostics  are loaded on a hidden partition of the hard disk on most systems and the boot screen (built into the firmware), looks to see what is available (restore,  diagnostic, backup, etc) and displays a list of what it finds, if you hit the appropriate key at power on.   It may take a few trys.
plse post the dmp file here, as asked by Ramin  - then we can have a look

Mini dump folder is empty - are the .dmp files invisible or hidden ?
RaminTechnical AdvisorCommented:
It is Visible and doesn't need to select Show hidden files.

But please enable Windows setting to create dmp file as per this article:

Make sure to remove the tick of checkbox to Automatically Restart.
