Hello Bleeping Computer,
So I've been trying to solve this since it randomly started happening yesterday, but to no avail.
I have a Samsung Q430 Intel i5 with Windows 7 x64 Home Premium (SP1), and the computer randomly started to lag, so I restarted it. It logged in successfully the first few times, but became extremely laggy after login, until it froze up completely each time. I then tried the recovery CD, and it worked the first time, but nothing changed, and it was still laggy. However, the computer could not even get past the black loading screen anymore, and began on a continuous reboot cycle, each time ending with a flash of a BSOD that I couldn't catch. It restarts to two options: Launch startup repair or Start windows normally, both of which end up freezing and restarting.
I have tried:
-Safe Mode (worked first time, but was laggy, and now it just freezes during loading)
-Last Known good configuration (nothing happened)
-Recovery CD (becomes stuck while trying to find the OS, says "Drive E: 0 bytes, windows 7 and never finishes loading)
-Installation CD (stuck at entering setup screen)
The only thing that really works is the Ubuntu Live CD...
So, any suggestions?
