    My laptop won't boot up, System Repair does nothing, please help


    Okay so yesterday I was trying to uninstall Internet Download Manager, which required me to reboot the system. I said ok and the system started to reboot. But then System Repair started up, so I let it run and it rebooted again, getting to the windows glowy icon. But instead of fully loading, it just stopped at a blank black screen. I had my stepfather take a look, an he managed to get it into safe mode and mussed around. But it still won't properly start, and I NEED my laptop back, I can't afford to lose it. I don't have a backup made, but I should be able to, right? I've tried the Startup Repair, and then it went into restoring a previous version or something, but that didn't work. Is this a virus? If I make a copy of all my files, then the virus will just be copied too right? Please help, I've been stressed for days and its giving me anxiety.

    Okay brilliant, try following andrews steps.

    As most of the possible problems can be solved that way.

    If that fails we can look into it more.

    I'm not able to make a disc or CD like this seems to want me to do, and I am a beginner with computers.
