oh no... this is NOT going well at all !!! i used partition wizard. divided my C drive , so it was reduced from 232 GB to 116 GB . after i had done that it asks me to restart. the original problem is that i cannot restart or shutdown . so i leave it and that blue screen appears saying ' cannot restart driver power state failure' ! it shuts down automatically. i then power on and once it starts up, i click on my computer and check the drives . there is NO new drive of 116 GB !!! my C drive containing my windows 7 stuff has been reduced to 116 GB from the 232 GB..........BUT 116 GB IS MISSING !!!

You did not divide your C drive, you shrunk (or resized) it to 116gb. Now you have Unallocated Space to its right. So follow the steps here to create a new partition in the Unallocated space: Partition or Volume - Create New. This is the third time I've posted that blue link for you.

You were working with Arc to solve the Blue Screen. Did you answer his questions? Make sure or he may be done with you.
