Alright, so my Acer laptop has been working fine with no problems at all since i bought it about 2 years ago. This was until yesterday where i turned it on, just to see no login screen, only a black screen with a moveable cursor

I tried ctrl+alt+delete didn't work

I tried to repair windows with the repair disc through a USB, didnt work. It said that windows couldn't automaticly fix the issue, in the log it said:

Problem Signature:
Problem Event Name: StartupRepairOffline
Proglem Signature 01: 6.1.76900.16385
Proglem Signature 02: 6.1.76900.16385
Proglem Signature 03: Unknown
Proglem Signature 04: 0
Proglem Signature 05: Autofailover
Proglem Signature 06: 8
Proglem Signature 07: BadDriver

I tried to restore to previous system points, but didn't have any for some reason

When i boot from the repair disc, i'm able to get into the menu where i chose OS, and found out that when i press Load Drivers, i'm able to access my HDD, where everything seems to be intact, already copied some important work stuff to a seperate HDD if *** won't get working

any ideas?

You've possibly caught a virus. I suggest using a stand alone virus or malware checker. MalwareBytes is highly recommended.
see if you can boot to safe mode to run the virus scan.

Non of the safe modes works

And i haven't installed any new programs the last few weeks on my laptop, so a virus would be weird

Sometimes yu can get infected just by visiting a bad website, whether you install anything or not. Go here and burn the CD:
http://ultimatebootcd.com/
I think it has a virus scan on it. burn the CD & boot from it, then run the Virus scan.

How did you try this? What was the USB device that you were trying to repair from? Normally, the repair is done from a disc, or a recovery partition.

To boot off the USB drive, and do a repair, it needs to be from a bootable USB drive. If you didn't already, here's a guide on how to create the bootable USB drive.

Once you have that, you can boot off it (by changing the boot order), and choose the repair function.

You got the same thing? That looks like a windows error.

Is this how you performed the repair? If so, how far in the process did you get?

i ran a bootable virus scan from an USB and found multiple variants of this so far:

not-a-virus: Porn-Tool.Win32.Agent.xo

weird, cause i don't use my laptop for porn, but anyway does it clarify anything?

Try this rescue disc. If there is still malware, it should get it.

What about the repair link? How far did you get when doing the repair?
