Mine also not working

I had the same problem in my Acer Aspire 5745G Notebook for long time.
It was worked fine about 8-9 months ago.

But startup is going normally, takes usual time and loads desktop.
The only problem is that spinning wheel is not animating. I was suffered a lot because of this issue.

How did you fix yours? I'v tried all solutions in ms answers("sfc/ scannow" , "fixit aero t.s." , "startup repair" , f8 menu:last known gud config *at that time*) n here, mine is still stuck.
What are the solutions? I'v started a new thread here about this case and haven't got enough answers as you got.

Please help me!
Thanks in advance before!
