As soon as I start I see: windows failed to start. a recent hardware or software change might be the cause. i get an option to start normally or launch startup repair (recommended). When I start normally, the blue screen flashes quickly and brings me back to same screen. . When i Launch Startup Repair (Recommended) its runs the repair quickly and I get this message: "startup repair cannot repair this computer automatically" I can send the information about this problem or dont send. I hit send, and this message appears in a gray box, "If you have recently attached a devices..." (Same I got earlier). This is the same box I see the diagnostic and repair details. I can also view advanced options for system recovery and support (which brings me back to system recovery options).

Ok now we are down to a bluescreen error 1e
Load windows re again using F8 and then command prompt, type this command
chkdsk /r C:
wait for it to complete, may take a long time.
then run this command
chkdsk /r D:
they will take some time to run depending on how large your hard drive is, let them complete overnight if needed.
when it is done try a normal boot.

I let it run. Did not work I rebooted, got the flash of the blue screen (so fast I couldnt read it), and it sent me back to the black screen that gave me the options of starting windows normally or running a recovery.
