About a month and a half ago, I purchased a new Toshiba Satellite C650D laptop, as I was about to start university.
Everything seemed to be working fine up until about a day or two ago, when my computer began to work much slower than usual.
Last night, when I tried to turn on my laptop, everything worked fine until it got to the 'Starting Windows' page. From that point, the windows logo animation played continuously, without stopping. I restarted my computer, and I was faced with an option screen to either start windows normally, or run a system repair. I tried both options, neither of which fixed my problem. By starting windows normally, the same problem as before would happen. By running a system repair, it would come up with nothing.
I decided that I would put my computer down, and try to see what the problem was in the morning. When I woke up today, I started up my computer, and was faced with the same problem, except infinitely worse. By running windows normally, the 'Starting Windows' animation will play for about 3 minutes, the blue screen will flash quickly, and the computer will restart, and begin the same process over again in a continuous loop. By running a system repair, it brings me to a blank screen showing nothing but my cursor.
I pressed F8 at start up to run the computer in safe mode. This did nothing but bring me back to the same 'Starting Windows' problem. The same thing would happen by running any of the other options.
I have no idea what to do at this point. I'd like to make it clear that I DO NOT have any windows disk, and I'm likely too broke to buy one (I am a university student, after all).
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
PS. I'm not the very best when it comes to computers. So, if you could make your replies somewhat easy to understand, it'd really help me out a lot. Thank you.
