I had my PC running and went outside, and when I came back in it had been shut down. After booting it went to the Startup Repair, which i dont know if this is a fake. I cant enter safe mode after pressing F8 while booting, it always ends up going in Startup Repair.

Should I try to let the Startup Repair run and see if it finds something or should I immediately use FRST?
EDIT: OK, I let the Startup Repair run through, it said it fixed all issues (Disk Volume corrupt) and everything should be repaired. After restart--> Startup Repair again...
Thanks in advance.

Its real. But often it fails to do its job. Im too new at this to help you more. Better to wait for malware response team. But i know this is a hard drive error and should be dealt in the hardware section i think.

Hi, Dalni.


Did you get into windows after the startup repair ran the last time?  If you cant get into winows please let me know and I will report this topic to someone who works with computers that won't boot.


Do you have your data backed up?


I would agree with 67Nero, your hard drive may be going bad.  in case this is true you should try to mess with your pc as little as possible.  If the drive is bad the more you use it the less likely you will be able to recover your data.
