Laptop crashing, blue screen

HP Recommended
Spectre x360

Hello, I'm running some version of Windows 10 though I can't tell which since my laptop won't start properly. 

My computer crashed, when I try to start it now I get the message:

Recovery - Your PC needs to be repaired 

The Boot Configuration Data file doesn't contain valid information for an operating system 

File:\BCD

Error code: 0xc0000098

Any help would be appreciated

Thanks!

@The_Duck_Man 

Bluescreen failures (i.e., BSODs) are notoriously difficult to diagnose and to fix -- far beyond what WE typically can do in THIS self-help Community.

You have a couple of different options to chose from ...

--------------------

The first is that of specialized forums where where folks have vast experience troubleshooting, diagnosing, and suggesting repairs for BSODs.

The community Win10 forums has a section devoted to diagnosing BSODs. So, your best bet would be to post your problem there: https://www.tenforums.com/bsod-crashes-debugging/

--------------------

The second is using free software to examine the logs that BSODs produce. This app is known as bluescreenview and is available from NirSoft, from here: https://www.nirsoft.net/utils/blue_screen_view.html

You will then have to go online to do searches with that information to get further suggestions about what to do.

Good Luck
