multiple errors and failures - win 7
Posted on 2011-10-17
Computer Acer Aspire M3800 win 7 sp1
few days ago my computer froze and I had to switch off via the mains.
Next day I started the machine without difficulty, but the machine froze when I tried to print. Nor could I open the hard drive. When I tried to log off,
the logging off message stayed on the screen,so finally I had to switch the machine off again.
next day i was able to start the machine up, and in fact, by not switching it off, I was able to work with it reasonably normally, but again The hard drive was locked next StartUp with messages saying that Windows had a problem and suggested that it should try an 'Automatic Start Up Repair'.
After about 10 mins, the machine said 'Start Up Repair cannot repair this computer automatically'
seems to be a whole load of stuff going on, what to do?
