Hi,

Seems to be problem with hdd, Click Start -> Run & Type -> chkdsk /f c: -> ok, It will ask you to schedule a disk scan. Restart your pc, before login it will check and fix your hdd for errors. It may restart again and then login and try should be all good then.


Refer: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/914232 (Error code 0x800703e7
This specific error occurs when there is a problem performing an inpage operation. This error typically occurs because of corruption of the disk.)

Hope this helps.
