I have a gateway m-1625 laptop. I turned it on the other day and got a SMART Failure Predicted on Hard Disk 4 error. Press F1 to continue. When I press F1, i get 2 options: to launch startup repair, or to start windows normally. Windows won't start normally, and when i do the start up repair, i get a blue screen that says Session3_Initialization_Failed. I have an option to press F8 to start in Safe mode, but that doesn't work.
I am not a computer expert, but I do know my way around fixing things. Anyone that has any idea on how to get me back into windows will be a life saver.
Thanks in advance
