my dearest scott,
I dont know if we could call it a progress...but here's what happening with my pc now.
I shut it down last night, without running the check again. And I started it today and look what I got: the acer screen, then the microsoft one and then instead of the cute blue screen, a black screen saying:
windows error recovery
windows did not shut down successfully.If this was due to the system not responding or if the system was shut down to protect data, you might be able to recover by choosing one of the Safe Mode configurations fron the menu below (use the arrow keys to highlight your choice.)
safe mode with networking
safe mode with command prompt
start windows normally
And at first I chose start windows normally, and I was kinda hoping it'd all be over and I'd see my pc again..but no...after choosing that, a black screen appeared with nothing on it, just the arrow of the mouse...I left it for a while, in case it needed time to load, but nothing....so I pressed the shut down bottom.
Then I chose the option safe mode with command prompt because I thought I'd get the black screen to type in, but no..I did get a black screen with commands on it, but they were running by themselves, I couldnt type in..And again the black screen..
Is this good or bad?? I think I'm beginning to miss the system recovery options screen...
