For some strange reason this happens when I log on.

I get a BLACK SCREEN with white print saying "Windows failed to start, a recent software change may be the cause"
I haven't changed anything though?

I also get 1: Insert your Windows installation disc-restart
2:Choose your languagesettings Click Next

A further back page with white print: Status 0XC000000f The boot selection failed because a required device is in acessable

Choose between Start Up Repair or
Launch Start up Repair

This computer is only 8 months old and I would be really grateful if you could advice me? Sometimes the computer gets online like now through a mix of good luck really!

Kind Regards
