Hi, this is my first post, and I am not even sure if anyone on this forum can help me. I am having a major problem with my computer. I have a Lenovo laptop, an ideapad. I am running on windows 7. A few days ago I started up my computer, and it showed the windows sign as it usually does when starting up. But it stayed on that screen for ages, so I clicked enter to see if it was responding, and it wasn't, it just stayed there for a while. Then suddenly I was sent to the blue screen, for a few seconds, and then it told me my startup wasn't working. It asked me to log in as an administrator so I did. It then took me to the system recovery page. I tried doing the system repair, and all the other options. I have saved my computer many times, but when I tried to restore to a previous save point it said I didn't have any. I think the part of the disk that had the save files was corrupted. Anyways, after having a disk check done for almost 30 strait hours at still 7 percent, :/, I went to problem details. This came up.

Problem Signatures

01- 6.1.7600.16385

02- 6.1.7600.16385

03- unknown

04- 8

05- AutoFailover

06- 1

07- BadDisk

OS version- 6.1.7600.2.0.0.256.1

Locale ID- 1033

 

i have read on other forums, so in the command prompt I typed Bootrec.exe but none of the four options worked for me!! (FixMbr FixBoot ScanOs RebuildBcd) I also did

bcdedit/export C:\BCD_Backup

c:

cd boot

attrib bcd -s -h -r

ren c:\boot\bcd bcd.old

bootrec /RebuildBcd

 

only one item was there and that was windows 7 so I added it to the boot list. I use my laptop for homework, gaming, projects, and I also have important things saved on it, so I need to fix it ASAP. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!

Will it boot with a USB stick [hopefully made earlier]?  I believe we have the options of creating rescue DVDs or USB sticks during Windows' better days.

There are numerous resources from here and other places to get the files and make your USB stick.

Obviously, you will have to have access to another similar OS computer.  I think you have Windows 7;  64bit?  32bit?  I believe it best to have your USB stick with similar bit.

I will try to get one, but for now I will have to do some more research about where I can get a USB stick. Also, I will have to contact someone with a similar computer. Thank you!!

I will try this, but this is my first time trying to fix a computer so I am not very good at this. I think (not sure) but if I do try using the USB will my computer's data be deleted? And if so, is there any other way I can try to fix it, with the command prompt or something similar that will not delete my data? I have important files, and I am not willing to lose them unless that is the only way to get my computer running again. If it is the only way, or the only way you know of, please let me know. Thanks again!

07- BadDisk may indicate a failing hard drive. "disk check done for almost 30 strait hours at still 7 percent" also indicates a failing drive or a severly corrupted file system. Data retrieval would be the most important thing to do at this point. Are you currently posting from  a Windows 7 or Windows 8 computer? Do you have access to a USB external drive? Can your current computer boot a CD/DVD?
