    I cant even get into my computer though and I think the only solution on here I have seen is to reset it.. Can I run this program if I cant even get past this setrepair screen. If I restored factory settings so my computer will turn on and stuff will this programme then work or will the files be completely deleted.. Your help is really much appreciated!

There are couple of software which can help you with the complete data recovery from your computer/hard drive, and the best part is the software is completely free of cost.

The software helped me as well last week in recovering few important photographs of mine which had got deleted.

Please click on the below mentioned link to get the free copy of the software, believe me this software is awesome.

    Yes, the best part about the program is that even when the drive is formatted then also all the data can be recovered.

    You can start by gettig your computer repaired/restored and once it is done just save this programme to your computer and start with the data restoration.

You should go into the safe mode and try to uninstall or undo the previous work. Else use the system restore. But if it continues again with a blue screen error, then u should format ur pc, further if u experience blue screen error then u should note that one of ur hardware is damaged.
