    You can find out the error and repair method by running System File Checker tool on your laptop. For that, click on the ‘Start’ button first and select ‘All Programs’ option. Choose ‘Accessories’ from the available options and right-click on the Command Prompt. Select ‘Run as Administrator’ option from the menu pop up on the screen afterwards. Click on ‘Continue’ option or provide administrator password while prompted. Type sfc /scannow into the command prompt and press the ‘Enter’ key. The scan process will begin after that and you have to wait until the process ends with a message indicating the error and its repair method.
