Okay, so I was playing a game then suddenly my computer freezes, well not really freeze just my programs all werent responding, including task manager, so i turned power off and back on.
I am greeted with a choice of two options, to "startup repair" or just start normally.
But both options give me this:
Windows has encountered a problem communicating with a device connected to your computer
This error can be caused by unplugging a removable storage device such as an external USB drive while the device is in use, or by faulty hardware such as a hard drive or CD-ROM drive that is failing. Make sure any removable storage is properly connected and then restart your computer.
If you continue to recieve this error message, contact the hardware manufacturer.
Info: An unexpected I/O error has occured.
Tried safe mode, still does this, so I decided to boot from Windows 7 cd and I chose to use startup repair, then it attempts to repair, about 2 hours later, it's still stuck on "attempting repairs.", I can't cancel it either so it just makes me even more nervous.
Please help, thanks.
