My ASUS S200E recently stopped working and began coming up with a recovery screen when I tried to turn the computer on. It asked for the recovery media which I have on USB and have tried to use.
Once I have the recovery media plugged in it comes up with two options - Troubleshoot or Turn off your PC.
When I click troubleshoot I then can refresh my computer which when chosen says "The drive where Windows is installed is locked. Unlock the drive and try again" - I cannot unlock any drives as I cannot get on to the computer.
Another option is Reset your PC which then tells me "Unable to rest your PC. A Required drive partition is missing."
The final option is Advanced options.
When I go on to advanced options I have the option to system restore which comes up with the message "To use system restore, you must specify which windows installation to restore. Restart this computer, select an operating system, and then select system restore" but if I restart the computer I do not have the option to select an operating system.
System recovery image which when clicked on just says "Windows cannot find a system image on this computer."
Automatic repair which when clicked just says "Automatic repair couldn't repair your PC."
The final option under advanced options in command prompt for advanced troubleshooting.
Does anyone have any ideas how I can repair the computer?
The computer came with word already installed so I do not have a product key to download a new copy of windows with. It was originally windows 8 but updated to windows 8.1.
Any ideas would be appreciated - I've given as much detail as I can regarding the options that the computer offers me but if you need anymore then I wil try and explain further.
