When I turn on it gets to the windows didnt shut down properly where you get the options start with last known good setting, run in safe mode, start normally etc when i chose an option it just restarts and does this everytime no matter what option. Anyone know why this is happening I took the back off the fan is working etc and the battery attached to the computer seems fine

When you turn on the laptop, continuously tap F8 until you get the Advanced Boot Menu screen. From here choose "Disable automatic restart on system failure". Then when you restart, you should get a blue screen. What exactly does it say on the blue screen?

Boot off of the Windows Disc Or download the Recovery Console ISO. Burn it to CD with IMGBurn Boot off of the CD and get to the Recovery Console. Here type chkdsk /R and press enter. The Check Disk utility will try and fix any file errors.
You can also download the ISO image for Seatools or Drive Fitness in my signature and burn the image to a CD using IMGBurn also in my signature and boot off of the newly created CD and run the Quick and Advanced tests on the HDD to test the integrity of the drive.
