Acer L100 comp wont start past the windows loading screen

I was starting my computer as normal the other day and it said that it had a disk check to do so i let it. then after it getting to the final process of the disk check i got fed up with the slow speed at which it was finishing so i just simply turned it off, and ever since when I turn it on it takes me to the "sorry windows suffered an error" screen and gives me the option of starting the comp in safe mode, safe mode with networking, safe mode with command prompt, last known good config., and starting windows normally. Now i have tried all 5 of windows so called solutions and all of them do the exact same thing, they bring me to the windows loading screen and then after it loads it reboots and starts all of this crap over again. any help will be much appreciated.

Shutdown possibly damaged the boot sector on hard drive, get service agent to ghost your files onto another disk, and repair boot sector and then put your files back

Open My Computer, and then select the local disk you want to check.
On the File menu, click Properties.
On the Tools tab, under Error-checking, click Check Now.
Under Check disk options, select the Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors check box.

If I were you I would reformat your PC. In short words reformatting you Delete everything from the pc, the reinstall the OS(Operating System). Once the process is done, your PC is alot faster, and fresh. What happens to most people's PC it gets bogged down, and you go along time without cleaning it it will crash, just like a car.

There are hidden folders within the OS such as the prefetch where files are kept to help you boot problems faster, but the prefetch gets bigger each day, and isn't really needed.

To clean the prefetch you would go to Start>Run>type "prefetch" without quotes, once it opens the folder delete ALL files in it, a shortcut is to click any fil inside the prefetch, and press "ctrl+A" that will select all the files and now simply press Delete, and confirm Yes.

Something else to help maximize your system is to do a "disk clean up" access that by going to start>all programs>accessories>system tools

I hope this helped you maintain a better system in the future, if I were you I would go ahead and do the reformat then use the tips I just gave you to keep your system in shape.

Also another top make sure you keep your system clean of threats,(malware,spyware,adware,etc...) I would recommend Norton or Mcfee, I go with and, another one I like is its up to you which you choose.

Good Luck!

This may be due to faulty/corrupt system files. If you have windows installation disk with you, boot from it. Do a start up repair using the tool in it. This will fix the startup problem. If you want full guidance, comment me which windows you are using.

After completion of disk checking it load windows but if still not load windows then you need recovery disk or windows disk then boot computer with it then repair old windows.

My Acer Aspire won't boot up past the Window's Loading bar

Log in to safe mode by pressing F8 during startup, if you see windows loading you have missed your window to push the F8 key. When the options menu comes up choose safe mode.
While in safe mode if it loads, click Start > Computer (My Computer) > right click on your ‘C’ drive and click properties > click the ‘tools’ tab > click the ‘Check Now’ button under ‘Error-checking’ > make sure the options ‘Automatically fix…’; and ‘Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors’ is checked. A dialogue box will come up stating “windows cannot check the disk”, just click the ‘Schedule disk check’ button and restart your computer. When the computer starts up a check disk will start, let it run. you might want to go do something as the check disk may take up to and sometimes longer than an hour.
Let me know if that helped, and please rate me after, thank you.
