Recently my laptop (gateway NV53 with Win 8 preinstalled) took a s**t on itself. If anyone could help me through this it would be greatly appreaciated.
Alright, two days ago I was doing some work for my teacher/Boss (gathering information from the Web) and I had to leave. I closed the lid and left. Returning to my work, opening the lid, the Gateway boot up page was up and didn't do a thing. I turned it off holding the power button. Turning it back on it said 'Preparing Automatic Repair'. Alright, so I waited a few hours and checked back on it. All it had was a blank screen...
I hooked it up to it's charger and let it do it's thing for the day. The next morning, NOTHING CHANGED.
Is there something wrong with the Win 8 (somewhere it mentioned something like it was locking the hard drive which is why I cannot boot up). Any ideas?
