HELP! My laptop battery died so went into hibernation automatically and tuned off. I turn it back on and all I get is a black screen saying:

Windows Boot Manager
Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software chance miht be the cause. To fix the problem:
1. Insert your windows installation disc and restart your computer.
2. Choose your language settings and click "Next."
3. Click "repair your computer."#

Status: 0xc000000f

Info: The boot selection failed because a required device is inaccessible.

Okay I tried the steps but my laptop isn't picking up the disc. Its a samsung r60+ laptop running windows 7 7048? I think

Please help, I have no idea what to do, its not picking up the disc, I cant boot it up!

Thanks, Chris

Okay, I pressed Ctrl + Alt + Esc and it came up with boot form dvd or hard driveso i did dvd and it worked :D So then I tried repairing like it said and it failed... So now I'm gonna have to wipe my hard drvie and reinstall windows 7 =/

Thanks, Chris
