I have a Toshiba Satellite laptop and use Vista.
This problem started a few days ago. My computer could not detect or locate my CD drive. I restarted the laptop a couple of times and after the 2nd time it could locate the drive. The computer system worked fine. I shut down everything and the next day the exact same thing happened when i turned my system back on. After restarting everything, if i clicked on any of my icons (firefox, itunes etc) the computer would "not responding" and it would never stop doing that. I had to shut down the computer without going through the proper routes, and now it will not start up at all.
Today i went through and did a windows repair, instead of starting normally. After all of that it said that it was unable to do a windows repair on the computer (i tried this a few times while also trying to restart the computer normally). I then went into the advanced repair settings and wanted to restore the computer and just have a brand new start. When i did that, it would not let me restore and this message came up: "No restore points have been created on your computer's system".
I have no idea what to do at this point since nothing is even starting up now past that startup screen. I do not know if this is malware related, and i really know nothing about computers.
Any help that anyone could offer would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you so much.
