Windows 7: startup repair error on samsung np300

startup repair error on samsung np300

my laptop crashed two days ago whilst browsing the internet and i had to force a shut down, when i restarted my laptop it gave me two options, one being the startup repair and the other being to start windows normally.

neither work.

the startup repair sends me to a blank blue windows screen and after 2 hours of waiting i abandoned that and attempted to just start windows, which loops me back round to the startup error page.

i have searched for a fix and therefore attempted to boot my laptop in safe mode which loops back round and i have also tried to use the last known good configuration which sends me to a green windows screen and again after hours of waiting nothing is gained.

My last move has been to try and create a repair disk through my friends laptop but after fiddling with the boot order to finally get it to even recognise the disc is doesnt work. i assume its because i made the disc through a windows 8 machine and not a windows 7 one.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, this is super frustrating and i have ran out of ideas

Is the HDD detected in BIOS setup? If not try reinstalling it to get it detected. If it won't be then you'll need to either slave it to another PC to test the drive, or replace it.

Otherwise everything possible that can be done is here for Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Start.

Note that repairs work best from disks which are all provided in the tutorial, as well as flash stick alternatives.

Does startup repair show a repiar progress dialog or something like that. For example:

You see the disk light flashing all the time? So it's really busy? I think it's checking the disk for errors. Let it run for maybe 10 hours. After that ... Greg told you already
