  1. I was uninstalling a simulation game on my computer and had to restart at the end. When i did it said my computer shut down improperly and gave me two options: start normaly or fix problem. Well I picked fix problem and then it shutdown automatically. Now i have been getting the BSOD. At the top it says



    Towards the bottom it shows

    ***STOP: 0x00000050
    (0xfffff8840087e394, 0x0000000000000000, 0xfffff9800003dbfc, 0x0000000000000005)

    *** CLFS.SYS - Address FFFFF9800003dbfc BASE AT FFFFF98000019000, DATESTAMP 4549B3D1

    I have no idea what any of that is but I cant get passed this page. It wont even let me log-in in safe mode or anything else.

    Any help would be welcome.

    Are there any recovery options listed as the computer first starts?

    Looks like you will have to format the hard drive and re-install Windows fresh
