So, I was watching a movie on my laptop when I got a blue screen.
After the laptot restarted, it got stuck on the Starting Windows screen. The logo and the loading bar didn't appear.
I tried to go into safe mode, but it got stuck on the Loading files, please wait screen.
I tried Startup Repair also, I got a message with :"Startup Repair cannot repair this computer automatically",
I checked the details and the error code was 0x490 (No OS files found on disk), so I tried reinstalling Windows 7
, but when I booted form the cd I got an error that said :"Windows ha encountered a problem communicating with a device connected to your computer" Info: An unexpected I/O error has occured. The CD ROM drive was working before the blue screen.
I tried booting the Windows 7 from an USB Flash, but it got stuck on a blanc screen.
Please, if you have a solution to this prolem, let me know.
