Just today I tried to boot up my computer, and it failed to load. A screen popped up asking me to either run the windows startup repair tool, or to start windows normally. I tried running the repair tool, and it loads some data, but then I get a black screen with a mouse pointer; nothing more. I tried leaving it on this screen for a while to see if anything else would load, but nothing progressed.
Back at the previous menu (run the windows startup repair tool, or start windows normally), I chose the "start windows normally" and pressed enter. The "Windows is loading" screen came on with the animated windows logo, but after about a minute, I got a blue screen saying "Unmountable_boot_volume" followed by windows attempting to restart.
I have been having some issues with booting my computer recently, but was able to get it up and running yesterday. I actually created a backup file + system image on an external hard drive yesterday, but I do not know how to use them to get my computer repaired/running. A few months ago, I used Windows to create a System Repair Disk. I put it into my disk drive, but I'm not sure how to access that either.
I have access to another computer, so If I need to DL any software or burn some recovery file to a disk, I am able to. If you post a link, please use a safe/certified hosting site, as the temporary computer I am using is not mine.
I am running Windows 7 on an Acer Aspire 5920 laptop. The hard drive is not from the manufacturer, rather a Seagate one I bought after my first HDD failed. I do not have the original installation disk with me. If you have any advice or information on how to fix my problem, I would greatly appreciate your help.
