my computer froze up in the middle of an update, so i had to shut it off. when i rebooted, i get the starting windows screen, then once it is done, i just get a blank screen. i tried restoring it, but that didnt work, so i tried just reinstalling windows from my CD. everytime i install windows, it gets through expanding the files and another step, then when it has to reboot to finish, i get "please wait while windows sets up your computer" for about an hour. sometimes the screen will come up to complete installation after that, but there is always some sort of error. ive tried installing it 3 different times now, and each time instead of writing over it, it creates a partition on the c: drive(i now have 3 incomplete, nonworking versions of windows). tried memory diagnostics and disk checks, but got nothing.
not sure what else to do..
