Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause...........

 

then i chose "Launch startup Repair (recommended)"

 

but it said  [Status: 0xc00000e9   Info: An unexpected I/O error has occurred.]

 

Hard Disk Test

 

Testing Drive: 1

Your hard drive has failed or is failing fast.You will need to purchase a new hard drive to replace it. You can use any retail SATA mobile hard drive. Just be sure to get one with of least as large a capacity as the original to use Recovery Disks to reinstall Windows. It can be larger but not smaller.For instance if you have a> 750gb hdd do not buy a 320gb.

 

If you have not burned a Recovery Disk set you can order from your software & drivers page:
