I have windows vista on an acer aspire. about an hour ago, I got an error message that said " system error. hard disk failure detected". after that I got about 50 error messages all layered on top of each other, with 2 options I can't remember. I was then reading about this possible virus online when my desktop folders disappeared and soon the computer shut itself off. I restarted and got all the error messages again, but was able to get on to the internet (under the start menu all the programs were gone, but when I went to all programs you could see them). but again the computer shut itself off (after i tried to close some of the error windows which were blocking my view of the web browser).
now I tried to restart my computer again but it will not start. instead it is giving me a window with the option to repair or restore.
I am on my phone posting to this site, hoping someone can help.
I do not have a cd/dvd drive, btw.
