I have a problem with my laptop.
I'm sorry, but this thing problem has a history, so I will have to tell it too:
2 months ago, my HDD got the "click of death" and I replaced it with another one and installed the same windows 7 (the one on the sticker on the bottom of the laptop) with it. Thing is, even after I got the new one, messages still appeared saying that the HDD is about to fail and needs to be replaced, so I shut off these warning manually through some Administrative steps (guided by a friend ). I tested my new HDD using all available tools and made sure it was flawless, just to clear that out.
I ignored the problem and everything was fine till yesterday... my computer got infected from a friend's USB disk, and I think it messed up the windows installation, so whenever I boot up the laptop, it says "loading windows" and the windows logo shows up and finishes loading, then it disappears, then instead of getting to the welcome screen, it gives a very fast BSOD and reboots.
I tried to boot into safe mode, but that gives the same result.
After a couple of fail trials, the laptop gave me the option to enter system recovery, so I did. It says also "loading operating system" then it gets me to a black screen with the mouse pointer in the screen. I can move the pointer, but nothing else shows up.
I tried using the windows installation disk from one of my friends, and it gives the same result as the previous. (black screen with movable mouse pointer)
One thing else I want to point out... a friend suggested we tried a live linux distro, and I tried one and it worked and I was able to access my HDD and I could backup the data if I want to, but the HDD is perfectly fine.
Sorry for adding so much detail, I just want to make it as clear as possible.
I hope someone could help.
