Hi,

 

  My HP G72 laptop recently shut down automatically and when I try to restart it, I get a black screen with blinking cursor in the top center of the screen. I have gone through various topics posted in this as well as other forums, but I am not sure how I need to proceed with this. I do not have a system recovery disc with me. I was able to go into the command prompt and when I did DISKPARTand list volume, I noticed that my C: drive has a Syatem Label but its size is only 200MB. My D: drive has no label but all my stuff that typically would be in the C drive is in the D drive. I have not created any other partitions in my computer. My E: drive has Recovery label but there is just one text file in there. I have backed up all my data and was thinking of re-installing the OS, but I wanted to see if there are any other alternatives which could address the issue. 

 

I have been running my laptop for several days continuously. I believe this could be a result of a virus attack for one reason that this happened as soon as I clicked on a link unintentionally.

 

Any help would be much appreciated.
