My Zenbook crashed yesterday when I clicked OK to a "LiveUpdate" pop-up on my desktop. Guess it was from Asus but I'm not sure, as the pop-up didn't contain any text...
When I boot it gets to the (pulsating) Windows logo - after that I just get a black screen with a movable cursor.
None of the safe modes works - just black screens with "safe mode" written in every corner.
I've made a bootable USB with Windows 7, and that boots up fine to the install/recovery mode - sometimes. Sometimes it doesn't get that far, it just goes to the black screen even though I'm certain it boots from the USB. Weird.
Anyway, the recovery mode can't find any system images, and I can't see the SSD when I try the 'load the drivers
' option. HOWEVER, the harddrive DOES show up in the BIOS, but only IF the USB is in the machine?
I have an option to reinstall Windows (I think...), but I would very much like to safe some files before the drive is formatted...
