When the power came back on and I tried to start my computer it just won't boot up Windows. The computer turns on OK, so it shouldn't be a hardware problem (ie power supply didn't blow or anything) but Windows just won't load up to the password prompt screen.
When I start it the windows (8.1) logo shows up and the dots indicate loading but then the screen goes blank and it won't progress any further than that. It will sit there until I restart it.
When I restart it goes into "preparing automatic repair" and "diagnosing your PC". Then the usual blue screen where it gives me the option to restart or use advanced options. I have tried restarting it from here and also using the advanced options. In advanced options I have tried booting in safe mode, "exit and continue to Windows", and start up repair...all of them restart the computer but the same problem persists where it won't load to the password screen. When I try the "refresh" option in advanced settings it just says it failed to refresh.
So I don't know what to do? I'm freaking the bleep out as I am working to a deadline on these assignments and this just couldn't come at a worse time
Any advice at all? Cheers!
