Question about Acer Extensa 4620 Notebook
I let my comp die while it was unplugged. It hibernated then shutoff when too low. When i turned it on later it did the system resume and worked fine. Next time i turned on though it got to the log screen and when i clicked on my account it stayed on the welcome screen with the loading icon for over 5 min and then finally showed a gray black screen with the only message after another 20 mins of "Failure- Security options" Also i finally got startup repair to run and it said "Root cause found: Unspecified changes to system configuration might have caused the problem.
Repair action: System files integrity check and repair.
Result: Failed. Error code=0x490
Time taken: 460671 ms
From that error, it is likely one of 2 things. Either the bootloader is corrupted, which you can try to repair with the following tools:
Worst case for a software error, clean install of Windows to resolve.
Or the hard drive is having a hardware failure and it is effecting the boot sector of the HDD. If it is a HW failure, you may be able to run diags to see if a fault is found. If the drive is bad, it will need to be replaced
