Yesterday my computer was working just fine, I shut it down to go to a friend's house and when I came back it had the little ":( There's somethign wrong with your computer" with the error code "DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION" and now it boots straight in to start up repair.
I tried a few things to troubleshoot this morning; ran chkdsk /f/r - nothing found, but it could not write errors to the log file with a status 50, tried to system restore but it would not go, saying the drive was corrupt, though the disk health check on Hiren's Boot CD completely without errors. Startup repair said it could not be completed and created a logfile I can't read (Dunno if there's a command to read text files in cmd, but apparently help is no longer a recognized command.
Lastly, I tried the windows built-in reset, which got to 1% and said that it can't reset this PC, no changes were made.
EDIT: Now I'm even more confused, I figured out how to read the srttrail log (the startup repair logfile) and it comes up with "Boot status indicates that the OS booted successfully."
