Hope anyone of you could help me please, I don't have good skills on computers. I have a problem with Windows Vista in my laptop, it cannot start. After I type my password to log in, the following error appears:
Windows Boot Failure
Press 'OK' to fix boot failure
2) When I press 'OK' to the prompt above, another window appears with the following message:
Windows Disk Diagnostics Tool will scan the system to identify performance issues
Check disk options:
Check hard drive sector
Check file system integrity
3) When I hit the start button the following error message appears:
Windows detected a hard disk problem
A problem with the hard disk has been detected.
It is strongly recommended that you download and install the following certified software to fix the detected hard drive error.
Do you want to download the recommended software?
4) When I select the 'Cancel' button it takes me back to step 2 (i.e. Disk Diagnostics error) and if I select the OK button - nothing happens, no more error messages and desktop is still empty, all black.
This same problem was posted on march 3, someone of you replied that post giving some steps for creating a bootable USB Drive. http://www.geekstogo...acked-computer/
I followed all the steps, I got the file OTL.txt (if you want me to post it, i'll do it per your request). I can access to my personal files using the USB drive as OS but I don't know which way to save them the best is, to backup my files, they are too heavy. I tried to use an external hard drive but the OS of the USB can't recognize it.
My plan was to save them first and then format my computer but maybe there's a way to fix Windows without formatting.
I'd really appreciate your help whether you could give a solution to fix the Windows problem or give me some advices to backup my files, I would need to spend too much time using a usb drive of 4 GB to try to save for mimimum 100 GB of my personal files.
Thanks and best regards!
