I am using a Dell Inspiron with Windows 8 OS and last night I noticed the laptop was going very slow and so I turned it off. I restarted it and it went into automatic recovery and somehow turned back on. I was able to backup some files but then I noticed it was going slow again. So I turned it off and since then I have not been able to boot up the computer. I turn it on, see the Dell splash screen then it takes some time and the message "preparing automatic repair" comes up. It takes some time and then all I get is a black screen. I try to type or use the keyboard and nothing happens. I can see the mouse moving when I try to do that. The activity light is also flickering on and off. I have tried to boot up BIOS and tried to get into safe mode by pushing both F2 and F12 or 10 whatever it is but I get the same thing.. "preparing automatic repair" and then black screen. I even tried to boot up from the windows 8 cd I had used to install it in the first place but even that did not load up. :(    Can anyone help me???
