Hi everyone... I'm here begging for your knowledge to help me out of this mess my computer has got me into.
I'll try to keep it short.
I got the blue screen of death on Friday night, for no reason at all.
I made a vista recovery disk from Neosmart as I was getting nowhere with the F8 key.
Everything went fine from these instructions HERE
, recovery disk loaded and went through the motions... however when it got to the part with the System recovery options, I didn't have any system on my list.
I also don't know where to find one in the drives... it just wants me to keep opening folders, so I can't even select the whole C:
So I click NEXT.
Nothing there in the following list works.
I've seen a post simalar to this one on the site but here's where my problem differs.
In the command prompt the directory is
X:\Sources> and not X:\windows\system32
which wont allow me to type in any prompts giving me this message everytime
' ...... is not recognized as an internal or external command, orperable program or batch file'
Sooooo what do I do???
Anyone that can shead some light on this, I'll be soooo grateful.
I'd hate to have to reinstall everything and loose all my stuff and I've no clue how I could even back them up as the system wont even start up without the recovery disk.
