My laptop wont boot correctly. After turning on it will do the usual process and then after loading it stops and im unable to get to the screen where i type in my password. The screen is black with a mouse and then turns blue after awhile with the mouse. Ive tried loading the repair windows from the f8 menu and non of that will load after selected. It just takes me back to the blue/black screen and I've tried clicking start windows normally and that will not work either it takes me back to the windows can't start screen...i did get an error message that say's something like can't boot up due to damaged/corrupt'd file.

Any information would be great...i did some research on this issue and some websites are saying its the graphics card, or mobo (mother board) but I'm just not sure so once again any information would be great thanks!
