    What do you mean 'the laptop got turned off'? It just shut itself down? Was it overheated?

The disc read error means the computer is having a problem reading the boot file off your hard drive. You will not be able to boot into safe mode as your computer cannot find windows. There are twp possible answers. Either your hard drive went out and needs to be replaced. Or you need to create a boot disk or just re-install windows. Since it is a disk read error it leads me to believe the hard drive needs to be replaced. Is it a possibility to re-install windows?

Here is a link to create a boot disk

I dont think the internet files had a difference.
a disk read error mean thateither you have a floppy in your computer or the hard drive is corrupt. that cannnot be fixed so i recomend getting a new hard drive.

Try System File Checker. It finds and replaces corrupted system files. You may need a copy of OS. At command prompt type sfc /scannow ENTER.

You can also use the Win 7 install disc:
Boot with a Win 7 disc, and choose Repair Your Computer. Then use Startup Repair option. Type bootrec /fixboot ENTER if end up at the command prompt. It does the same thing.

I have a Acer Aspire 7736z-4905 and I downloaded a picture editor from the internet and I'm not sure if I got a virus but the laptop was moving really slow so I uninstalled it. After that it was telling me...

In uninstalling the software, you probably deleted a system shared .dll file. Looks like bootmanager has become corrupted. In all probability, you have NOT deleted your files, just damaged the Windows installation and will need to repair it.

Couple of options:

1.) Insert the Windows install disc and let it find the existing windows installation and allow it to repair the existing installation.

2.) If this is not possible, or it cannot be repaired, you will need to do a fresh install of windows and will lose all your files, the alternative being to remove the hard drive, connect it to a SATA port on a computer and rescue the data before reformatting the drive

3.) If you do not have a installation disc, try this link:

Whenever i tried to chat online, my messenger stops working.What would be the problem?

your memory may be low; also you may have too many tabs open on the internet
shut down your PC; reboot and hit F2; a DOS screen will come up; arrow down to find available memory you need 200 or more for messenger to work
if you have less than 200; defrag and recheck the memory
if you still have less than 200; delete your temp files
go to start/my computer/find temp
go to each temp file and delete them, if the file is needed; you will not be able to delete it, so don't worry about deleting the wrong temp file
there will be temp files in your C: and Internet
they take up alot of space
