Hopefully this is not in a thread somewhere else, I've tried to find one (believe me, cause I'm desperate..).
So in the middle of me writing my master thesis, my computer just decided to die on me two days ago. Luckily, I haven't been that stupid so I've got backups of everything concerning my thesis, but as you can imagine it is not a dream scenario to suddenly not have a computer at all.
Anyways, to the issue:
So what happened is this.
1. In the middle of writing a blue screen comes up, saying that there has been a problem. A sad smiley face "" came up (I thought to myself that this can't be true. And then it said (translated from Swedish): "A problem has occured on the computer. It needs to be restarted." Something about information about the occurrence being collected.. "..afterwards a restart will take place automatically."
It then added: "If you want more information you can search for this issue online later: KERNEL_DATA_INPAGE_ERROR
It then restarted after some 30 minutes.
2. It started as normal (allthough a little slow), but then when I logged in almost none of my programs started. Any folder cannot be opened more than 15-20 seconds before it freezes a little bit and then just discontinues "explorer"/the folder and I'm back on the startscreen. Also, WIFI cannot be found whatsoever. Not that I cannot find WIFI, but it seems as if the actual WIFI on the computer just does not work. Or more like it doesn't even exist.
One more thing, If I try to open any Microsoft Office program it says that it is not licensed way before it even starts, and then just exits the program.
I guess that's more or less it. I'm not sure what to do. Should I factory reset or something? Have you come across anything similar? What am I to do? Do you think it's a hardware issue or a software issue?
Oh, and I'm running Windows 7 btw, if that is of any help.
In desperate need of help,
