|Oh no!!! Black Screen of Death!!!|
After a force restart, I see the option to "Repair Computer". Well, at least that's something. I go into the recovery console and after the machine tries to repair itself, I get a message that says that the computer cannot repair itself. I've gone into the command prompt, tried to do a CHKDSK scan and I get some crazy error and the disk cannot be checked. GREAT! (say it with a great deal of sarcasm) All I need now is for my HDD to be busted and I lose all my stuff. After several other trouble shooting through the command prompt, I decided to reach out to my tech friends for help. The majority of them believe it may be a virus not allowing me to get to my computer. The only thing that I can think of that would allow a virus in is that my license for my Vipre Antivirus expires this month. I don't know if the kids may have downloaded something soon after Vipre expired. Anyways, Kaspersky Rescue Disc seemed to be the go to choice among them to fix my issue.
After a quick search online, I was able to download the .iso file and burned to a CD. I tried downloading it and booting from a USB flash drive but after several attempts, I simply could not get it to boot from the USB drive. I suggest skipping the USB and going with a CD or DVD. Kaspersky Rescue Disc booted up, and after mounting my hard drive, it is now scanning for issues.
|Mmmm...lunch time pancakes and computer repair. A tech nerd's dream! lol =oP|
