    "preparing automatic repairs" Then bsod

    Hi there,
    I purchased a hp pavilion laptop a few months ago with Windows 10 pre-installed.
    I haven't used it for a few days, turned it on this evening and I got a message on boot up saying
    "preparing automatic repairs" and then my screen goes blank 3-5 seconds later.
    I do not have a cursor and have tried various keys and different ways of trying to bring up some kind of option. I also tried plugging my laptop into my TV to see if it were perhaps the screen that was going wrong. To no avail, I have spent hours on Google trying to work this out and I have absolutely no idea what to do next as I seem to have no other option!

    I really really hope someone can help me!!

    Thank you in advance.

    Hi Gibsonuk.

    We need at least some information about the BSOD in order to know what is going on there. Can you take a camera snap of it and let us see it?

    Hi Arc,
    I don't see a point in taking a picture of it as the screen just goes entirely black. No mouse no nothing at all. Regardless of which key I press or which form of keys I hit or type my password in etc etc the screen doesn't change. I have left it for hours wondering if it just takes a while but to no avail. I will however take a picture when I get home this evening.
    I think I still have warranty but I'd prefer to fix it myself.

    Actually, this is a BSOD screen.

    The last line is the bugcheck code, the thing in the bracket is the probable cause.

    A entirely black screen is anything but a BSOD.
