I then tried "fixing" the computer myself by burning Windows 7 onto a blank CD and installing the OS on my laptop. But that did little to resolve my problems; the computer STILL froze up after I logged in. Now, the computer will not start at all, even in safemode! When I try to start the computer up normally, I see the splash screen and then right after that a blue screen appears for such a short amount of time that I don't even have time to read it although I did see "UNMOVABLE_BOOT_VOLUME"
I did a search for this specific error and the articles I found said the first step is to put the windows recovery disk inside the computer. Well, I have found the Windows vista recovery disks and I put the first one in, but then nothing happens! When I start the computer with the CD in it says,"Windows is loading files . . .," then, it shows the splash screen, and then nothing happens! It's just a black screen with the cursor over it. (And yes, I did go into BIOS and the CD drive is listed as #1)
Please help me fix my computer once and for all!
(PS: I am currently on my phone and I do not have access to another computer.)
