I'm having trouble with my laptop. It's an ASUS running Windows 7.
When I tried to start up the laptop earlier today, the screen went black and it took 2+ minutes to even load the blue background that is there when it asks for a password. I tried rebooting and nothing happened. If I try to use the repair mode nothing happens, it's been at it for more than 7 hours.
I then tried just rebooting and starting normally, yet nothing happened, and I read online that I should try F8 and then safe mode. I did so, and it loaded the drivers, but crashed with a blue screen, which then disappeared so fast that I couldn't even see the error code. Do you guys have any solutions?
EDIT: So I forgot to mention that I didn't do a system restore on a discette or cd or whatever and none of the F8 stuff worked.
EDIT2: I tried pressing F8 and have it not restart once bluescreen is there, the error code was: UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME * STOP: 0x000000ED (0xFFFFFA80073D2650, 0xFFFFFFFFC0000B5, 0x000000000000000, 0x000000000000000)
EDIT3: So I downloaded a program called HDDScan on my USB drive, yet I net to know how to use it on my laptop, that is unable to start up and run it normally.
