You need to replace the system by returning it at wal-mart or just buy a new one. There is a ribbon that leads from the laser eye to the processor board is broken or come undone burnt or the laser eye itself is worn out. The problem could also be the processor or the video processor on the board. It would be cheaper to buy a new one or exchange. Paying a technician to fix it is going to cost more than a new unit.

Hello I wonder if you can help. When we switch

Had a similar problem like this several times. Try choosing safe mode. Safe mode will load the required drivers. After safe mode finishes the loading process, restart your computer and choose to start windows normally. The problem you mention usually happens when the computer is turned off without using normal shut down procedures. Also happens when you have a sudden power outage.
