I have an HP Pavillion a1110n, maybe 2 years old. Everything is factory standard, nothing has been changed. Yesterday while watching movies she shut down suddenly, and has refused to restart. I'm getting the error message:
Windows could not start because of an error in the software.
Please report this problem as :
load needed DLLs for kernel.
Please contact your support person to report this problem.
I tried system recovery to no avail. I tried to recover from the recovery partition (Ha! Fat Chance...) and then tried from the discs. There are 11 Recovery CD's that came with my computer, and 1 supplemental recovery CD. I get all the way to disc 11, to around 86%, and I get a file copying error. The system reboots, and we're back to the DLL error.
I got in contact with HP, and they told me to try a "Destructive Recovery". I started that, and it got partially through before giving me this:
112047 MB done; 40580 MB left
Hard drive write error!
Press any key to continue.
Help? I'm not sure if there's something else I can try, or if this is a hardware problem, and something needs tweaked/screwed in/replaced/etc.
Any help is vastly appreciated!
