Hello Dgrappler1, hi, looks like your hard disk fails on you, in time hard disk do fail, due to hot or humid temperature, dont worry, you just need to reinstall a fresh copy of your operating system. you can ask a friend to do it for you, or do it yourself, just make sure you back up your hard drive for important files that you may have, Now to back up, you need the services of a technician, if files are not that important, do proceed with the installation. keep me posted.

Tips for a great answer:
Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to turn it
back on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see SAFE
MODE. Take the Safe Mode option and let it boot up. Safe Mode will look
different to you, the screen will be darker and the icons bigger, this is
Try connecting another monitor to the computer.
Borrow a monitor from a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker and
connect it to the computer. If the Borrowed monitor shows the 1 inch
black space then your video card might be going bad or you might have a
virus infection. If the Borrowed monitor displays ok then your original
monitor is bad.

Shine a flashlight on the dark screen to see if you barely
see the icons on the desktop. If so, then the LCD Inverter is bad.
Plug in an external monitor and see if the display shows up on it. It can be any kind of monitor even the old big fat crt monitors as long as it has a vga cable to connect to your computer's vga port. If so that proves your video card is ok. The video will show on most systems when you reboot without you having to do anything. Some systems will require you to hit the FN (Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold down the FN key then hit the correct key for displaying on the monitor (F1 thru F12). The correct key will normally have CRT/LCD on it or it will have the icon of a display.
If you see no icons by shinning a flash light and the external monitor works, then your screen is bad. If you see no icons by shinning the flash light and nothing shows on the external monitor, then most likely your video card is bad.
