Windows 7: Windows 7 Start-up Problem

Windows 7 Start-up Problem

Hey all.

I have a problem with my laptop. It's a HP MINI 2133 with Windows 7 32 Bit installed home edition.

Here is the problem. The other day I booted my computer and it said 'windows is loading files'. It then went to a system recovery screen. I thought this was a bit strange as I have never had any problems with it. I ran the reovery tool, it re-booted and everything seemed fine.

I went to start it this morning and I just had a black screen with a cursor flashing. After about 5 minutes it said 'windows is loading files'

I then got this error message.

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 hardrive or CD-ROM drive that is failing. Make sure any removable storage is properly connected and then restart your computer.

Status 0xc00000e9
Info: An unexpected I/0 error has occured.

I pressed enter to continue and it just restarts the computer. I then get the black screen with the flashing cursor.

I dont have any usb devices nor do I have a cd rom.

I have to add that yesterday I punched my laptop quite hard around the hardrive area. However I had the problems before I punched it.

Thanks for your advice.

Try doing a repair install and see if this helps...btw, why did you punch your laptop out??

Trouble is I don't have a dvd-rom drive anymore. I took it back to the shop once I installed it. I punched it because it was driving me mad. Do you think I'm going to need a whole new hardrive?

Punching your HDD cant help it, but it might be a file in your HDD that is corrupt (moste likely) the startup script.

Its entirely possible...hard drives are fragile and do not like to be punched in the nose....good luck...

I don't have anything on my hardrive that I care about so do you suggest trying to install windows again before buying a new hardrive.

You could attempt that, although if it doesnt boot you cant. Get a temp hDD or usb flash-drive and get your computer to run off that. See if it boots; if so its your hdd thats popped its clogs

Oh god. Why did I punch it?

I'm going to argos in a minute to buy an external DVD rom.

I'll try booting from the disk and report back.

Don't understand this part at all. You took what back to the shop after you installed what exactly?
Have you not got a "CD Drive" in the machine or is that faulty? If so what seems to be the problem with that?

I have a mini netbook so there is no cd/dvd rom drive. I brought one from the shop to install windows but now I don't have it anymore.
