Recently managed to brick my computer by trying to clear up some space on my C: drive. I checked 'Compress Drive'. The problem is when I boot up my laptop it goes straight to a blank screen with the following: WIDTM is compressed. Press ctrl+alt-del to restart. I can't access safe mode. I can access 'BIOS' and 'BOOT Drivers' and I have tried using the windows 7 system recovery tool. What I did was I tried to repair the C: drive but couldn't find anything wrong with the drive. I have tried restoring the computer to a previous restore point and it worked but when I rebooted, I still ended up with the same problem. I can't seem to find anything in this website or on google search, so I'm massively puzzled and kind of at a loss. I'm only wanting to have to re-install win7 as a last resort, and if i can fix this without doing that then that would be grand. Any suggestions? If it helps I have a 'Hi-grade' laptop - it was provided to me by my LEA since I have learning difficulties. If you need more specs then i can get them for you.
