it says - your pc needs to be repaired
the boot configuration data file is missing some required information
and then switched itself off!
ok, which version of windows is it running?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
Power it off.
Then hold the LEFT Shift and with it held down, start the computer and keep tapping F8 until you get to a menu.
Tell me if you can get to this menu (if not at first try a few times please)
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
nope...tried 5 times and it just keeps giving me the same message. there is an error code and it says you'll need to use recovery tools, then something about installation media (disc or usb device)
then switches itself off
Power it off, power it on and keep tapping F9 till you get to the recovery manager.
Tell me if you can get to this please.

same thing happened
Thanks It is the internal hard drive that has faulted. Can be a software or hardware fault but you will need a windows disk and attempt a reinstallation of windows in order to confirm this. I am really sorry about this and you are going to have to return the computer to have this done. It will be covered by the warranty if this has not expired, and the replacement will be done at no cost to you. In my experience this is a hardware failure of the hard drive and they will likely replace this. I am really sorry about this, and if you have problems, or would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know. And if you can take a second to rate my service, that would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

Just a quick question:
I can't find the original disc I got with the computer - would that be the disc you mean?
They do not supply them anymore, its on the hard drive which is the procedure with f9 and why it leads to a faulty hard drive.
The shop though does have a master disk to reinstall.
