Hope someone can help please...
Was trying to clean up friends ADVENT QUANTUM 200 Laptop (2Gb RAM/250 Gb HD win 7 Home Basic 32 Bit).
Removed Norton AV and restarted.
Ran Ccleaner and restarted.
Ran MBAM (Malwarebytes) and found 8 suspect items.
All was fine and system was running quicker than before.
Then just as I was unplugging mains electrical supply I noticed a number of Win updates that needed to be applied, so I left laptop on table to install new software updates and shutdown.
On returning from work this evening I booted laptop to find: WINDOWS BOOT MANAGER
Info: An unexpected I/O error has occurred.
I cannot access Windows at all...a black screen just appears and the two choices it gives: ESCAPE=exit or ENTER=Continue, just returns me to the same screen after a few seconds.
I have tried continually pressing f8 on bootup, pressing f8 once etc - No change
Any suggestions please.
