I own an acer aspire laptop and about a year ago I upgraded to windows 8. Havent had any problems until last week when I shut down my laptop after doing a disk defrag. After booting it up the next day, it was on the windows loading screen for about 30 mins. After that, it gets stuck on finding disk errors and goes on for ages until I just shut it down (by ages, I have waited 24 hours).
So, question is; does anyone know how to stop this or get it out of the loop (cannot access safemode). I've heard that you can use a recovery disk and boot it from that. However, I don't have one as I've never bothered to make one (lazy, I know) but would it be possible to use my friends recovery drive, or are they unique to each computer?
Thanks in advance
