i really need everyones help about my laptop (msi cx420), any info would be great It all started when i tried to boot my laptop (4 months ago i think), everything seems ok until the boot process became stock in the windows 7 logo.. after that it restarts and everytime I select start windows normally, the whole boot up to windows 7 logo and then restarts happens again.. (by the way i used a windows 7 64 bit activated by an activator, not sure which activator, but that activator serves me for quite some time.. 1.5-2 years i think before this incident happened) I tried starting in safe mode, but after loading all the native drivers.. it will only show a black screen.. I tried start up repair, does not solve the problem I tried Sytem resotre, but all my restore points magically vanished T_T so i tried to reformat the laptop using the windows 7 installer that I used before, after the "windows is loading files", the blue screen with the message "set up is starting" came.. but the thing that i notice is that it took about 45-60 minutes for the "set up is starting" part to end (which is very long compared to normal).. after that i click the agree with the terms etc.. and then the selection of where the OS would be installed came, but once again i noticed that it took another 45-60 minutes before i can select the partition where i want to install the OS and on top of that all the partitions show that they are clean/no files saved (for example 300 of 300 gb free space).. after that the whole installation time becomes normal.. after finishing the installation of the windows 7 OS.. i use the activator that i have, and installed all the drivers of my laptop.. I could use the laptop for about 1-1.5 months (sometimes less than) with no problems encountered.. until it will not boot up again (stock in win 7 logo and then restarts), so once again I do a reinstall of the OS (which took a very long time, just like the one I described earlier) I think I experienced/performed this events for 5-6 times already, so could anyone help me find the possible problem and solutions if there are any could it be the windows 7 (activated by an activator)?? or the HDD?? or other??
