System has been working well for ages. A few weekends ago my wife restarted system and it just hanged on a black screen and cursor. Then it ultimately presented a message that it cannot boot from the CD or hard drive. 

 

I disconnected the power and the internet cable and it restarted. 

 

Yesterday I rebooted it before going to bed and found upon waking the same symptoms as before. 

 

I have disconnected the power and internet cable and awaiting some insight on this problem from the message board.

Hers's the deal... if this is Windows 8.1 the is a download which will allow you to create a Windows 8.1 installation media.  With this you can access the System Recovery Options, one of which is the Command Prompt.  There are commands that can be used in the Command Prompt which could resolve this problem.

 

This computer originally came with either XP or Vista installed on it.  Since you now have Windows 8 / 8.1 you had to either have upgraded using a upgrade installation or installed Windows 8 as a fresh installation over writing the previous operating system.  Do you still have the disc used for this?
