Hello all,
Hopefully someone here can help me. I have a Dell Laptop with Windows 7. Here's what happened:

I was watching a streaming television show from tvduck when my computer just shut down. Now I can't start up. It freezes on the Loading windows section. I turned off the computer and restarted and received a screen prompting me to do start up repair. I clicked that and I after a few minutes I received the message "Start up repair cannot repair this computer automatically".

Is there anything that I can do? Sorry if I am not thorough enough, but hopefully this is enough. Any and all suggestions are welcome.

Thanks for your time and help.

See if you're able to boot to Safe Mode (Press F8 after restarting the computer). If not, check to see if there's a boot menu (possibly F12 or F10 when booting) and check to see if there are any built in diagnostics. Run a disk test if there is.
