    I have a Medion Laptop and it froze so I forced it off. Now when i load it in any mode (safe mode freezes after avg file) It will go to a black screen or a 0xc0000009 I/O error message.

    I've run it in start up repair and there aren't any system restore points available and start up repair took 17 hours before i decided to turn it off! What is going on!? My hardware doesn't make any strange sounds and my bios recognises my Hard Drive.

    Luckily, there's nothing important on the laptop so i don't mind if we have to reset it to factory settings as i have the Windows 7 installation disc as well!

    Please help! It's frustrating.(n)

    Hi,

    If there's nothing important on the laptop and you have a disk, it will be less hassle to just completely re install.

    If it was me the curiosity of why is wasn't working would get the better of me, so I wouldn't.

    We have tried a lot of those commands before! Nothing is working, the Startup repair has been going for another 23 hours so far...nothing.

    Re install is better for you or system repair disc. The reason, is corrupted operating system. Please format in secure mode, by using UBCD. It will remover all the bad sectors from it.

    did you run chkdsk /f /r C: assuming C is the os, or sfc /scannow from the command prompt

    I'm only 17 and not completely computer literate so could this be put out simply for me? and my dad said he ran chkdsk and scannow and there's nothing wrong, my pc just isn't booting. And whenever i click install now from the disc it just hangs there loading it.

    if your computer has a recovery partition, start your computer and tap F11 to enter the recovery,wait for windows to load files and if you are resetting to factory restore state select RESTORE TO HDD with "NO BACKUP USER DATA
