i don't have the cd, I can get it tomorrow, I did HP recovery. Some minor programs dont work, but at least all the files are there. It still wont start normally or let me go to safe mode, ive tried making 2 boot cds they dont work. But it only let me do F10 for the restore, and then somehow from there it started normally. otherwise i had to turn on /shut down manually 3 or 4 times for it to even allow the f10 (hope this makes sense!)
Right now im going to keep it on for a while and do any sort of fix i can before trying to restart it. Right now scanning with Kaspersky, Superantispyware wont run or let me reinstall without a restart and im afraid to. Any ideas on fixing disk errors that would take care of the startup? (something not too advanced pls)
oh the screen randomly flickers or goes black, until i tap the windows button. this is driving me nuts
and thank you very much for reading and trying to help
