    If you have a copy of a windows disk you can boot from a (No CD/DVD drive?) USB and select repair my computer, navigate to command prompt and run these commands, one at a time,

    bcdedit /export C:\BCD_Backup
    cd boot
    attrib bcd -s -h -r
    ren c:\boot\bcd bcd.old
    bootrec /RebuildBcd
    bootrec /fixmb
    bootrec /fixboot
    Remove recovery disk and boot from hard drive (don't forget to set the boot option back to HD).


    Some people say this works

    Push start and immediately hold down start button until it shuts off. Do this three more times, but the third time don't hold the start button. Just leave it and let it run. Do have power cord plugged in. Give it a couple hours or so.
