    Sounds like your hard drive may have died on you.

    You could check your hard drive at boot using a drive test tool (ex: SeaTools) from the drive's manufacturer to see if the hard drive passes or not.



    Do you have a system image backup that you could use to restore with?

    Windows 8.1


    I have checked the harddisk with chkdsk /r and it reports no problem.What I need now is the win 8.1 repair disk- trying to create one online refuses to accept my genuine win 8.0 product key. I have a Win 8.0 DVD (Not the one I used to upgrade from win 7) and whenever I want to Refresh the Installation it will give a message that I should unlock the PC on which the Windows folder is Installed.What next?

    Might be time to consider doing a clean install with your Windows 8 DVD and key, update to 8.1, and upgrade to 8.1 Update via Windows Update.
