Im having a few problems with my cousins laptop. So heres what happened. All was working fine since it was purchased(4 months ago), then 2 days ago he launched firefox to check his email. Then windows explorer freezes, CTRL+ALT+DELT did nothing, so he was forced to do a hard reboot. The computer rebooted and now hangs on the Microsoft logo screen with the loading bar, and it sits there until we turn it off. Tried booting into safe mode and after it loads the file "CRCDISK.sys" the system just sits there for about 10 minutes, then restarts. I have tried system recovery, start up repair, and nothing works. Google turned up with alot of people with the problem, but no definate answer. There has been NO software installed, music/videos downloaded, nothing has been done for over a month. Reformatting is not really an option, so if thats what you are going to post, do not post at all.
