So i was watching a movie last night. Streaming from a website. Prior to that the only other thing i did was install real player and had to uninstall a bunch of junk that came with it.
Everything seems to be fine. half way through the movie boom Chrome closes for no reason im like wtf?
Then the machine shuts down as though i told it to. Im like this is wacky. So i gave it a few minutes...turned the machine back on...everthing seems to be booting up normal except...instead of starting its trying to boot to the network??
.Im fairly positive i disabled network boot in the BIOS...and Im like crap my drive must be toast if its trying a network boot. So i restart the machine...the BIOS detects my drive. Ok so my install is corrupt.
I tried several times with my WIN 7 CD to do some repair work. It sees my drive...sees the install...but doesnt detect any startup problems. I tried a Fixboot/MBR exec still not working. So i tried a system restore. It sees 3 restore points. I tried one out but it never finishes. Just keeps scrolling... i left it for a few hours because i had something to do but it never finished.
So i boot with my Ubuntu Live CD and all my data is there. I back up everything i need to an external drive i have. Im just bugging my out that i was able to see the drive just fine in Ubuntu and no issues with copying the data over? So i figured let me try a repair install. I start a custom install and did not format the drive but it still does not boot.Booted up with the 7 cd again and it sees both installations now.
Im going to try formatting the drive next just though i'd grab some more data from the drive..while im waiting for the copy to finish thought i'd post and see if anyone had a thought?
