There are other things to try, if this isn't the problem. You'll probably be best to do a clean install.
But it will not be easy for those who are not yet having experiences in windows installation. System seems to run OK. yes it is a laptop it is a asus e4109 i think Reports: · Posted 6 years ago Top vistamike Posts: 10945 This post has been reported.

Can you post a screen shot of Disk Management? Your system is looking for drivers! So either you force a shut down to your PC or it does not go over that screen.
Windows 7 creates this partition when you use the partitioning software built in the Windows 7 install DVD. If I power it off and reboot it does the same thing My System Specs System Manufacturer/Model Number Custom OS Windows 7 Ultimate CPU Intel i5 750 Motherboard Gigabyte P55-UD3R Memory i have 2 recovery disks i dont get it i think i got my first ??? have a peek here When you get to the screen in Windows 7 install where is shows your hard drive setup, delete all the existing partitions.
