You have a serious problem. There may be another solution, but I recommend reinstalling Windows. You will need to backup everything on the hard drive, which will require a second computer and some way to connect your current drive to it. Once that's done, get an install disc for the version of Windows you want to install. Power up the computer as much as you can, put the disc in the drive, then restart. An option to boot from the CD should appear. If it doesn't you need to change some BIOS settings first. That involves pressing whatever key is listed at the very first startup screen, and scrolling through the text-only menus to change the preferred order of the boot devices. Set the CD drive to the first spot in the list. Once you can boot from the disc, the installer will take care of the rest and can walk you through the installation. Good luck!
1. Enter the BIOS - the key to press is written on the main screen, most likely F1. 2. In there change the boot order - put the cd first and the hard disk second - follow the instructions on the screen on how to do it.
3.Boot from your recovery disks and during install choose a full format.
how to get into CMOS, simplly put F1, OR F2, F10,F12, OR DEL key, but very depend on your laptop itself.
tips, whatever key you need, will show on the boot up screen , like : type Fxxxxx for setup, Fxxxxxxxxx for boot up device order .
for your laptop, may have chance that you laptop too old, some model of ram are not fully compareable.
