    Your P.C needs to be repaired.
    The operating system couldt be loaded because a required file is missing or contains errors..file C.I.dll Error code 0xc0000098

    Gives me options to f8 startup settings but when i click some i just get this message again..
    My laptop was working fine last night on the forum when we spoke last then i installed 16 updates then was asked to restart p.c then it wouldt work again. Im using my phone to write this reply out.
    In the F8 startup settings is there an option for safe mode with command prompt ?
    or have you already tried it ?

    Maybe it would be a good idea to suggest the first thing a poster does when their system is not working reliably, is disable auto-updates? Flooding a bunch of fixes into the situation is like guaranteed muddy waters.. if not a non-booting system.

    I'm in the United States, so I'm unsure of which companies are in your country. I use Newegg or Amazon, but I'm unsure if they can overnight to you outside of the U.S. Your notebook should have a 2.5" hard drive. I just did a search on Amazon and came across a Aspire 5552. It listed the hard drive size as 320 gb. It's probably SATA 2 3.0 gbps., not SATA 3 6.0 gbps. Do yourself a favor and get a 2.5" hard drive that's at least 500 / 700 GBs. or 1.0 tbs.

    If you are not overly concerned about battery life until next charge, then consider a 7200 rpm hdd which will give a lot better responsiveness to the machine.
