    Blue Screen and Error code: 0xc0000428 on Startup


    When I start my computer the screen is blue and reports:
    Digital signature for this file couldn't be verified
    Error code: 0xc0000428
    You'll need ti use recovery tools. If you don't have any installation media (like a disc or USB device), contact your PC administrator or PC/Device manufacturer

    If I press F1 for Recovery Environment then I just return to the same blue screen and error message. If I press Esc then I can get into BIOS and choose to Boot from UEFI installation media.

    First, let me say that I have Googled and tried pretty much every suggested solution out there but I still haven't been able to fix this issue.

    Computer information:
    Asus Laptop
    Windows 10 Home

    It started when I turned on my computer yesterday (worked the day before), the only difference is that I had plugged in headphones when I started the computer (the headphones I had used before on numerous computers).

    To try and solve this I have:
    - Downloaded the MediaCreationTool and created an installation Media (to have USB to boot from)
    - I tried every System Repair and Restore (from Troubleshooter) but nothing worked. System Restore just restores to last known point (have tried different points) but the same blue screen error occurs.
    - I tried to install a new Windows but I still get the same error (and now I can't do System restore since there are no previous saves)
    - I have gone into Command prompt and tried Chkdsk and it reports no errors except that it was unable to save message log.
    - I even tried to recreate the Registry by using CMD but when I came to the step to go into RegBack the directory is empty of any files (no Registry files so can't perform back-up)

    So if anyone can help me figure out how to restore my computer it would be highly appreciated since it feels like I have tried everything.

    Hello OverDEdge,

    It sounds like you may have something wrong with the Boot Manager. Use a recovery disk and try to repair the boot manager. Try this one which has a copy of EasyBCD provided on the recovery disk.
