laptop help!!

just tonight my laptop started to act up.. i go to turn it on and i get these error messages.. then it tried to go to this repair part for 5-10 minutes and says its re starting my laptop then it does the same thing over and over.. i took two photos to show you also...


i put in my laptops re installation disc thing but its not telling me to re install it or anything.. i have several discs that came with the laptop that are not opened. is there a certain one?

i would even pay for someone to help me fix this!! i am using my other computer, desktop right now..

the second pic says attempting to repair... repairing disk errors. this might take over an hour to complete. but doesnt take that long.... says that in the pic #2 w/ white screen

Let it do its thing for now. The CD you should be using should be labeled recovery cd.

I will let it sit and it gives me that repair message. But it will keep restarting and then ask me if I want to start it up regular or the way that has recommended in parenthesis. In 25 sec it automatically restarts. But it doesthis over and over. Then goes to those screens that I posted above. The white one especially. Idk if I should let it sit for hours and just restart over And over or wut.

If it took that long then its probably not going to work. First you should be trying to get in to safe mode. You can access this when pushing F8 after starting your computer. If you can get into windows, try and load a restore point. Also from the F8 menu you can choose Last Known Good Configuration

Ok I'll try it real quick. If not I'll take it to a repair place.

plushdragon helped look for balloons
for the repair cd to work you need to change the boot order to the cd-rom.

what ^he said. Although laptops nowadays come with the correct bootup sequence to boot from a cd is always good to check. What is the make of your laptop?

Use the recovery CD to reinstall windows over itself, you shouldn't loose any files unless something is really screwy with your HDD, if it is, the files are already gone.

If you have to wipe it, look into a program called "stellar phoenix".
