hi, I think you should first check your HDD. So first open one of the panel of your CPU and check if HDD Data cable or SATA cable is properly inserted in HDD and in motherboard. Once it is been checked by you then save it by pressing F10 and reboot your system. If it wan't work then insert Bootable CD and reboot your system select repair or new installation of OS for easy going.

when I start up it states that home windows didn't begin effectively which a current hardware or software program change might have triggered this. It is going onto state if my personal pc ceased responding, re-booted unexpectedly or had been automatically turn off that I should choose Final Recognized Good Configuration. In order to start home windows usually in the event that start-up was disrupted because of energy failing or pressing the power switch, or if I am uncertain.
I attempt both of these options and only method I get a azure display that is states "a problem continues to be discovered as well as home windows has been shut down to avoid damage to your computer." Additionally, it says when I maintain obtaining this information that I ought to disable or un-install any kind of anti-virus, drive defragmentation or back-up utilities. Check your hard disk config, and appearance for any updated drivers. Run CHKDSK F/ to check for hard disk problem, after which reactivate your pc. Then a line along with "technical information" with a couple of numbers subsequent.

It could be a software issue(like faulty drivers, have you installed a firewall or av recently), maybe a virus, or indications of a faulty hard drive. I recommend you download speedfan, install it(it's free), then look at the s.m.a.r.t(harddrive) information, it show you a nice graph to the state of your hard drive. If your hard drive is in good then I recommend installing the same version of windows over top of your existing, it should replace any default files that maybe missing without deleting any of your files or settings.
If you still can't reach windows at all, then you need a recovery cd(use a distro of linux that supports live booting if necessary then copy relevant files from the windows partition to a spare hard drive, usb stick, etc...)

First check your hard disk cable is properly attached and then try rebooting. If it wont work then press F8 and go for safe mode. From start meny, system restore and just restore your system to latest check point. Hope it will work.
