My wife loaded a game on her laptop and now the laptop keeps booting in a circle to repair itself.  I have tried multiple recovery points in System Restore which says it has completed successfully.  The laptop continues to boot up in repair mode. I have run chkdsk /f and chkdsk /r which nothing was found.  It is a Sony VAIO.  Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Disconnect the power cable and then hold down the power button on the tower for 1 minute to drain flea power.

After that connect power, display, mouse and keyboard...disconnect the reset and boot the computer.


Post result.

Put the drive into a second PC and run a virus scan on it as a secondary drive.

Sounds like you have a virus on the drive

Hard Drive was too much of a pain to get out.  Reinstalled windows.
