    Ok I have a computer my boyfriend gave me, it was his brothers and he put a lot of it together himself so I don't really know the specs. For the first few days I would switch it on and it would blue screen, restart and then work fine until I switched it off, then that would happen again next time I switch it on. Well today it blue screened and switched off, then attempted Startup repair, which then failed. It keeps doing this exact loop -
    Restart - (Option to startup repair or start normally) -
    Startup Repair - (runs for a minute) -
    "Startup repair cannot repair this computer automatically) -
    Shuts down.
    It wont even let me use system restore or anything, the option isn't there. Can anyone help or is it a write off? I only use it to play WoW lol as my laptop wont run it. I DON'T have the Windows 7 CD, which would prob solve everything but I didn't get it with it and cant get it off the brother. Any suggestions??
    It wont give me the option for Safe Mode... Cant get to System Recovery (F11) menu, I repeatedly press it but nothing happens, but (F10) brings me to Setup if that's any use? But (Esc) brings me to the Boot Menu which gives me the option to select - HDD Group - ST380013AS - then brings me back to square one

    If anyone can help but needs more info I will provide whatever else I can :eek:
