Windows explorer was not responding yesterday so I had no choice but to hard reboot. Since then life has ceased to exist as i knew it.
I cannot get into safe mode. Pretty much I can't do anything but linger here in startup repair land. Going on 11 hours now. blue screen for about 4-5 hours last night until the "attemptingrepairs" startup repair screen came on. My excitement is quickly growing into despair as I have been watching the blue lines cross the status bar over and over now. My whole life is on this thing and I am pretty poor at backing up anything.....<lesson learned a little too late....> I did read the posting instructions, but was afraid to touch anything while this system is working. plus I have no idea how, and my boyfriend who does know how left me here alone with this levithon and won't be back until tonight.
So my question is: What in the world is it doing during startup repair? And why did they say it might take over an hour to complete vs saying it might take over one month to complete...
Has startup repair ever ended well for anyone?
Thank you in advance for any input and please excuse the amature post.
