    Try reseating your RAM and video card. This happened to me and I thought the hard drive was bad and I spent hours trying to replace and reinstall software/hard drives to have it continuously restart to the automatic repair loop. I removed the bad RAM from my system and it rebooted and acted like nothing had ever been wrong. That is where I would start.

    Reseat the RAM - reboot
    If auto loop starts up then
    Reseat the Video card - reboot
    If auto loop starts up then
    If you have 4 sticks of RAM, REMOVE two (I would check the RAM sticks and use a matched pair by brand) - reboot
    If you auto loop starts up, remove the remaining RAM and then reinstall the two you removed from above - reboot

    Hopefully, one of the above will help you out. Let us know how it goes.

I haven't installed anything lately and I can only think that it was maybe due to shutting down the computer directly from the power button (heard sudden shut downs could cause problems). I tried startup repair, I tried doing a "refresh" but it won't accept the cd, I tried doing a safe mode...

I am having this issue where my laptop with windows 8 just won't boot.
