I was trying to free up some space and accidentally deleted tons of system files and a bunch of necessary things :thumbsup: I have no idea what to do or which system files I deleted. I tried starting it up and it came up with a screen saying Power Saving Mode and then switched to a screen coming up with: SYNTAX in the middle and on the bottom it said: Press TAB to enter post.... and Press DEL to enter setup. I tried the rescue disk but it wouldn't load the CD Drive. Then I went into the BIOS and changed it so it would boot the CD drive first. Nothing happened. WQhenever i turn it on the SYNTAX and Power Saving Mode scxreens just cycle over and over continuously.

I desperately need help. I hope you can help me someway :flowers:

Repair install would be my suggestion, since you've mangled the system. SFC might do the trick, as suggested but it seems you cannot get there.
