Windows 8.1 (I haven’t updated yet, mostly because we use cellular data for our internet as there are no better options out here.)
The other day, the computer locked up and I did a hard re-start because it didn’t resolve itself.
When it turned back on, I get “scanning and repairing drive,” then “Repairing disk errors, this may take more than an hour.”
24 hours later, it’s still repairing errors. So I restarted, tried again, same thing. And again. Ditto.
I do have the system recovery disk, but I put it in the CD slot, and the same thing happens. How do you use the recovery disk if you can’t get the computer to boot?
I’m over my head here. Can someone walk me through what I should do? Please?
