After restarting my pc this morning (W8.1) I am encountering severe difficulties; I am unable to start the OS.
I get to the screen with the turquoise windows icon, then I'm informed it's scanning and repairing the drive...it stops at 0% for about 2 seconds then I get the blue screen with a notice of CRITICAL SERVICE FAILURE at the bottom. It manages to gather all of the information to (100%) then restarts. Then, ad infinitum, it continues.
I do have a W8 recovery disk, and I am fairly literate on these matters. Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
