The other night I came home from work and my computer was frozen. I could not X out of anything, use CTRL ALT DEL or open my start menu to restart my computer, so I restarted by holding in my power button. When I started my computer back up, I got all the way to the windows loading screen and it froze . Right after it froze, a blue screen popped up for about a second and then my computer restarted itself. Upon the restart I got the error message "Windows did not successfully boot, please select a boot type". It listed me Safe Mode, safe mode with networking, safe mode with command prompt, last known good configuration and start windows normally. I chose all of them but none of them worked, they all had the same freezing and blue screen effect.
Today I tried about 100 things. I've tried clearing my CMOS, resetting BIOS settings, disconnecting/reconnecting my PSU, HD, and CDROM from my motherboard. I've also tried windows repair but whenever it got to the part where it says "Your computer will now restart, setup will continue when your computer starts back up" it never did. It would always start over from the beginning, so I chose to reformat. I deleted the Windows Partition on my C drive and it is now formatting again. However, it appears to be frozen at 81% installed. Is it actually frozen or does it just take really long to format? It's been about 45 minutes and its still formatting
EDIT: nvm I just went back and checked and now its moved to 84%, man this takes long. Does it sound like I opened a virus that messed with some vital windows files? I didnt have much installed on this computer anyways so reformatting for me isnt really too awful.
