  1. Well, a possible cause, I thought, was that when I was installing Ubuntu, I accidentally hit the off switch on my Surge protector while it was resizing the partition.

    Now onto the details of my situation:

    I boot up with the recovery disk in the drive, it loads files fine... it goes to the screen with the flashing underscore, then shows the Windows loading screen... but right after that, it blue screens.

    Without the recovery disk, it just sticks at the screen with the flashing underscore. Nothing more.

    I can't boot up to Windows at all. Right now, I'm on my Ubuntu LiveCD. I have no idea what to do. Please someone help. :/

    Oh, and I forgot to add that I was just surfing on Youtube when it bluescreened for a second and just restarted.

    And that Windows booted fine last night after I accidentally shut it off in the middle of the resizing process.
