After a lot of research online the suggestions I found were that it was either a problem with the HD or with some Windows Registry Hive Files. I decided to try the repair in hopes of fixing the problems and maybe salvaging some of my things (I have a seperate partition, E, with all my photos, music, files) I followed the instructions to run the repair but it just hangs at the "Searching for previous versions of Microsoft Windows..." for hours on end. I actually let it go for about 3 hours when I tried that this afternoon and finally had to shut it off. Any suggestions on what I can do to fix this or at least figure out exactly what is corrupted would be much appreciated. Also if it sounds like I'm totally screwed with fixing it, how can I get my files on E from that laptop onto my new laptop since I can't even get Windows booted up fully? Thanks so much for your time and hopefully someone is able to assist because I am nearing my wits end and may just throw this thing at the wall.
