Ok here is what happened:

I bought a new monitor and instead of turning of my pc i just switched out the monitor cables thinking that it would work and i wouldnt have to restart. But the new monitor said no signal. So instead of plugging the old one back in i just forced the power off using the power button, thinking the new monitor might just need a restarted computer to work.

When i turned th pc power back on the monitor immediatly showed the windows desktop with all these error boxes. It was wierd it was like it woke up from sleep when i powered on the pc, it didn't go to windoes login or the acer screen before that. I could still move the mouse, and exit out of the error boxes.

So i powered off again using the poer button on the pc and it started to load the acer screen and said it was trying to repair he disk and this could take more than an hour.

After it finished this it said it failed and now im stuck at a blue scren that says choose an option with the following options.
1. Continue to load windows 8
2 Use a device - usb recovery cd ect
3. Triubleshoot - refresh reset or use advanced tools
4. Trun off you pc

I tried to refresh the pc under the trouble shoot option and it said there was a problem and no changes were made

Then i tried troubleshoot, advaced options, system restore. It gives me two restore points and either one i click on it it tells me "you must always restore the drive that contains windows. Restoring other drives is optional." Then has the c srive listed below it with a selection box, but i cant check it and i cant hit next, they aregreyed out.

I really would rather not lose all my files, so i havent tried the "reset your pc". But that might not work either, havent tried.

Im using windows 8 and not sure if i have upgraded to 8.1 cuz it asks me if i want to download it for free, or it used too before this happened lol

Acer predetor ag3620-ur14
