Hard drive issue?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Today I went to turn on my laptop to download a LAN driver for my new pc and was faced with a boot loop where the screen would flash blue with writing but it was too brief to identify any writing. Windows start-up repair wont load any text, just a black screen and my mouse. At first i thought my windows install was failing so i rebooted but loaded up my linux and everything was fine, loaded up chrome started a youtube vid all was good. Then i opened up the partition viewer to see the files saved on windows to try and salvage them. Thats when it happened again, everything froze nothing responded and had to force shut down. Oh, last thing that happened in windows before boot loop was windows went unresponsive an i couldn't even get task manager up, explorer.exe crashed along with all processes i had open. Any suggestions?

Same thing happened to my brother's laptop, when booting up it flashes a blue screen for a split second then goes in to Windows recovery mode. I tried to revert back a restore point I created but it keeps failing.
