so aight earlier today I was playing GTASA:MP and suddenly the game freezes, screen colors went crazy and I was forced to do a force shut down to restart the laptop. Now the screen colors at startup are screwed up, for example BIOS background has vertical pink and green stripes, texts have 'shadows' etc.
Ok so I start the laptop, loads up itself just fine until log-in screen: it never reaches that. After the windows has loaded, black screen shows up and it won't load to login screen. So I tried startup repair, had no effect and from BIOS I tried HDD repair and that gives some error and won't start. So I am out of ideas what to do next: use Vista recovery CD I made after the purchase of laptop or is there any other way?
And about the recovery CD, does it keep all the data on HDD? Cause I have some quite important documents and files on HDD so my question is, will it or will it not format the C: ?
And some stats about the laptop if that helps:
T2130 dual core 1.86
2 GB of ram
Vista Home Premium
Nvidia 7400 GO
