    BSoD and black screen with cursor problems

    When I try to start Windows normally, a BSoD tells me to run chkdsk /f which I can't do because when I try to launch startup repair, it loads and then just shows me a black screen and a slightly larger than usual cursor which I can move. Running in Safe Mode also gives me the same BSoD. I tried booting my Windows installation disc but I still get the same black screen and movable cursor. I have minor experience with fixing startup problems but sadly, I have no idea of how to fix this. I will be happy to provide any information needed. Reformatting is not an option because my really important projects are there and I can never recreate them. Salvaging my data is not really an option because I don't have external hard drives or anywhere to put them. Please help!

    I wouldn't recommend asking the same question on multiple forums as you can get completely different answers.
    I was going to post there but we'll stick to this one.

    How am I able to use these if I can't even start Windows?

    You might want to try SeaTools to see if your HDD is failing.

    Run SeaTools to see if your HDD or SSD is failing
