Re: Please Help: boot up going in circles
Ok, typically this means your hard drive is starting to fail, or has failed. Only diagnostic software from the hard drive manufacturer's website can tell you for sure.
However, there is a way that may work and get you back up and running. If you have a windows disk boot off of it. On the first screen type R to go into the recovery counsol. Here, type "chkdsk /r" This could take a while to run depending on the size and state of the hard drive. When that is done you will be able to type in more commands.
Type fixmbr and press enter. If prompted, type Y for yes. Then type in fixboot and press enter. Again, if you are prompted type Y.
Type Exit and press enter. Your computer should restart and usually the system will boot up. If the hard drive is infact failing, this could happen again. If it's not you should be all set. Just do a back up asap to play it safe.
