    Black screen after auto repair on boot


    Turned on my laptop this morning and it went to a blue screen, saying I had a problem. It then restarted and said "preparing automatic repair", after that it's just a black screen. Haven't found a fix to this browsing the web. Some pages said go to safe mood or bios, but upon searching how to do that, all the guides I found showed how to do it when windows was working fine.

    I'm using windows 8 and not 8.1 I had a similar problem to this once before, when I tried to update to 8.1, thus why it's just 8. Somehow, that's completely slipped my mind, I did a sort of refresh that fixed and windows and didn't remove all my files. It uninstalled things, but gave me a list of the programs and their versions.

    Edit: Turns out my laptop has an "assist" button, so I can go to bios and such options from there. I tried using Windows 8 disc to refresh, but it says my hard drive is locked.
