    Windows 8 stuck on attempting repairs screen??


    I have a Toshiba laptop, it's less then a year old and came with Windows 8 pre-installed, so i don't have a disc. Last night i was watching a movie on it when it froze up, i had no choice but to force reboot as it was unresponsive but when it rebooted it when straight to diagnosing and attempting repairs! I left it over night to allow it to repair but it never made it past that screen.

    It's less then a year old and it hadn't had a single issue up until last night, any suggestions? i've tried rebooting to watch for options watch for booting options but it doesn't give me any choices at all just goes straight to Diagnosing and attempting repairs!

    Boot off a live *nix distro like parted magic, and run the disk s.m.a.r.t. utility, i bet your hard disk is toasted :\
