I would appreciate some help with my computer problem.


After the electric burp yesterday where my computer lost power while it was on, I restarted it and it was real slow to boot back up, but it did come and I worked on it for quite some time into the evening. I shut it down last night just in case we had another electric event. When I turned it on this morning, nothing happened at all, just a black screen. I pushed the shut down button,unplugged it and let it sit for a while then plugged it in and tried again. I finally got a screen suggesting a repair start up and clicked ok, but again the screen went black and stayed that way. I pushed the power button to shut it off and tried again while hitting the F11 key. It never did go into safe mode but it did boot. I continue below. 


My computer has been booting and shutting down real slow for a while now. After that burp yesterday everything is slow, even opening a folder.


Lately, when my desktop boots, it shows only the background for a few seconds and then goes to a white screen for just a few seconds and then comes back with my desktop, including files and folders I have there. This morning when I finally got it to boot, the white screen came up and did not go away for a long time. I could see it was continuing to load by the circle cursor going around. I was about to use the power button again when the white screen disappeared to show my desktop. 


I worked on it for a while and then restarted and it took just about forever to boot back up.


I went into the Event Viewer and copied a few of the messages under Administrative Events. If it would help to take a look at them I could attach. They don't mean much to me. Please advise.
