I am new to the forums. This past week, my little one dropped my laptop on the floor which gave me error 0xc00000e9. I reinstalled Win 7 and everything seemed to be back to normal. Once I logged on, the computer operated so slow that it lagged when typing. I went to control panel and found out that none of the Microsoft, Intel programs were listed. I then realized updates weren't turned on, so I tried turning it on, but it gave me an error. This was the same error I got with many of the services not willing to turn on. I then went to services and tried turning it on from there, but I got error performing inpage operation. After that, I tried CHKDSK L: /R, but after waiting 5 days, it wouldn't move in stage 4 of 5. I am not sure what's going on, is the hard drive broken or the Iso file was corrupt? Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated!
Laptop hard drives are not all that robust. A dropped laptop is pretty much a guaranteed dead drive. The fact that chkdsk wouldn't complete after several days proves out that your hard drive is dead. Hopefully you had a backup of your data.
